Disney has been hit quite hard with the COVID-19 pandemic lately, having had to delay a huge number of its upcoming movies and TV shows. While it is still generally tight-lipped about its update schedule on both arms, it has recently lifted the lid on the new potential release dates of its Disney+ TV series.
This update was first revealed by way of a presentation from its French division (via ScreenRant). While the entire thing is in French, it explicitly stated its release schedule based on year. For your convenience, here is the list of Marvel and Star Wars shows that are slated to arrive in the coming months and years:
- The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2020)
- WandaVision (2020)
- Loki (2021)
- What If…? (2021)
- Hawkeye (2021)
- Cassian Andor (2021)
- Ms Marvel (2022)
- She-Hulk (2022)
- Moon Knight (2022)
- Obi-Wan Kenobi (TBA)
What’s interesting here is that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision are still slated to go out on 2020 (August and December respectively), despite production for the former having put on hold indefinitely amid the pandemic. Disney has yet to give the green light on shooting given many countries are still on lockdown.
Whether or not the two shows actually manage to finish filming, yet alone air, before the year is over remains to be seen. In a worst-case scenario, it might even affect the relese dates of Loki, Hawkeye and What If…?, but the House of Mouse has yet to give an official update on that.
Secondly, of the two Star Wars spinoff shows, the Cassian Andor limited series starring Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk could go out before the Obi-Wan show, despite more media attention seemingly directed toward the latter. It makes sense given that the Ewan McGregor-led show has been put on hold indefinitely after a series of script changes, as well as a structural change from six to four episodes.
And finally, the wait for the trio of Marvel shows in Ms Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight, which are all still in pre-production, is still pretty long, and may be even longer, given the current situation.
Despite the coronavirus situation, Disney+ still remains on top of the streaming business, having recently hit a milestone 50 million subscribers in just under five months.
