Disney+ Day | What news to expect on Disney Memorial Day?

THE disney promises to bring a news truckload to its streaming service this week. Called Disney+ Day, the date will be celebrated on Friday (12) and marks both the second anniversary of the platform’s original launch and the first year in Latin America. So, to celebrate, the company has already confirmed that it will bring new releases to subscribers, from exclusive premieres to new productions that will arrive in the catalog next year.

The highlight is the long-awaited addition of feature films that had not yet been added to the service, as is the case with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie was the first to set aside the Premier Access hybrid version and it hit theaters at a time when not everyone felt comfortable walking into a screening room. Thus, Disney+ Day will be an opportunity for many people to meet the new ultimate hero.

Already Jungle Cruise will be released to all streaming subscribers even after it appears on the platform via Premier Access. Still, this is a chance for Dawyne Johnson fans to see the giant in action, this time on an adventure inspired by one of the parks most classic rides.

Announcements and news

However, what everyone really wants to know is what surprises Mickey has in store for Disney+ Day. The company has already confirmed that its streaming platform’s anniversary will bring previews, new trailers and exclusive clips of Pixar-related content, wonder, Star Wars and Disney itself which will soon arrive on the platform. And this is where all the attention will be focused.

According to the company, the news will begin to be revealed from 11 a.m. Friday on the platform’s social networks. Plus, exclusive content from Pixar and wonderful studios will be added to Disney+ at 1 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. respectively. She didn’t reveal what those contents are, though, leaving us room for speculation about what’s to come.

Marvel Ads

The main expectation revolves around the productions of wonder. And, since this is a dedicated Disney+ event, it’s much more likely that we’ll have more MCU series news for streaming than announcements and videos of what’s not yet released. halls. Maybe we have something about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? Maybe, but the odds are much smaller than the news on falcon archer it will surely show. It’s quite possible that the series will receive a new trailer revealing more about the story and, perhaps, showing off the villain or even confirming that Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) will appear in some episodes.

In fact, it is good to point out that we are not going to have anything Spider-Man: No Coming Homesince all the promotion of the feature is done by sonyso the chances of us getting anything on the hero on Disney+ day are slim.

On the other hand, an almost certain bet is that we must have something to do with M/s. wonder being officially introduced. So far we have only had a few images that showed little and, at most, a few art leaks that indicated changes in the heroine’s powers. With that, you can expect a trailer featuring young Khamala Khan (Iman Vellani) and how she connects to the MCU as we know it. And, considering that the series should have premiered in 2021, it is possible that the new date will be revealed and for very soon.

Also within the Marvel series, it’s possible that Disney+ Day will be used to introduce the 2022 premiere schedule. She-Hulk is already in production and that the studio was still planning to release a series of moon knight next year, so it remains to be clarified how these plans are. And will we have a second season of What if…? appear so early?

Star Wars commercials

In the same way that Marvel Studios will work on its series on Disney+, this Friday’s event should also be the scene for Lucasfilms to show a little more of its productions derived from star wars. And in this case, there are many of them.

All attention will be focused on kenobi, the series centered on Obi-Wan and which will show what the Jedi did while hiding on Tatooine after the fall of the Republic. located between Revenge of the Sith and A new hope, the new story is still a huge mystery and little has been said about the story. At most, actor Hayden Christensen will return as Anakin/Darth Vader.

So, we’re expected to have at least one teaser aired during the event to contextualize fans on what the show will be about and kill the desire for Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan. However, don’t expect any explanation of how the actor will become Alec Guinness in just 20 years.

Another important production that must paint the Disney+ Day is the series Ahsoka. It remains to be seen whether she should debut in 2022, but the fact that the character is so dear to young fans of star wars and for his excellent participation in the second season of The Mandalorian, it’s almost certain that we’ll at least hear the ex-Jedi’s name at some point. By the way, can we expect any news from the third season of the adventures of Mando and Baby Yoda?

On the other hand, the great certainty is that the event should bring a teaser of and orthe series spin off in A thug and who will tell a little more about the story of the rebel Cassian Andor (Diego Luna). The recordings started a long time ago and various information was shared by the castespecially in the fact that the plot is much grayer and shows that the war between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire has never been very clean and not as manichean as we have always imagined.

Besides, star wars has a handful of other series in the works, like The Acolyte, earth and New Republic Rangers – Although the the latter’s future is uncertain after the resignation of actress Gina Carano. All this without talking about it Boba Fett’s Bookwhich will be released in streaming at the end of December and which just released a trailer.

Other announcements

On the Disney and Pixar side, it is quite possible that we will see some announcements related to upcoming productions from the studios. Charm premieres in December and is expected to be one of the stars of Disney+ Day – even if the launch is exclusive to theaters – as well as Red: Growing up is a beast. And, given this we got a teaser of light year released last week, we may have something more to do with this unusual origin story.

Promotions and special actions

In addition to all this news truck planned for Disney + Day, the event still brings some particular actions outside the platform – but which are directly related to it.

The first is a promotion to attract new subscribers. Those who do not yet have access to the service can subscribe for R$1.90 for the first month. The discount is only valid for those go to the event page and register until November 14.

In addition, Disney has prepared an action special in several cities around the world, taking elements related to its characters so that the public can see it up close. In Brazil, between November 10 and 16, Captain America’s shield is in the middle of Villa Lobos Park, São Paulo. In Rio de Janeiro, the Snowman Olaf will enjoy Copacabana Beach and the Pixar Ball will be at Aterro do Flamengo. fans of star wars Cariocas will be able to see Boba Fett’s helmet up close at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas.
