All The Disney+ Day 2021 Trailers, First Looks, And News From Disney's Hype Extravaganza

Happy Disney+ Day! The Walt Disney Company took over the internet today to reveal a series of trailers, first look photos, and various announcements about upcoming movies and TV shows coming to Disney+ over the next couple years. This included a cavalcade of sneak peeks at upcoming Disney+ TV shows from Marvel Studios, a glimpse at the "Star Wars" series "Obi-Wan Kenobi," a new animated series from Pixar Animation, and the return of the  "Cars" franchise in TV form. Plus, we got first looks from "Hocus Pocus 2" and a new "Baymax" series, and there are updates on "Disenchanted," the "Willow" sequel series, and the new "Predator" movie, even though the latter falls outside the Disney+ arena.

Get the full round-up below of all the Disney+ Day trailers, first looks, and announcements worth hearing about!

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett

Unfortunately for "Star Wars" fans, there wasn't a lot of pomp and circumstance for what Lucasfilm is working on. Though Disney did release a short featurette that highlights concept art for the upcoming "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series, the only way you can watch it is directly through Disney+. Thankfully, we've highlighted the finer bits for you.

The only other "Star Wars" tidbit came with the arrival of a roughly 20-minute documentary on the history of Boba Fett. "Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett" doesn't just give us a rundown of the character's place in the "Star Wars" universe, but it runs through his creation during the development process of "The Empire Strikes Back" and how the character has evolved over the years. There are even new talking heads from George Lucas about the character. It's nothing revelatory, but there are plenty of fun tidbits from behind the scenes of "Star Wars."

Marvel Studios Teases Very Little from a Huge Slate

Marvel Studios only brought some snippets of footage from upcoming TV shows headed to Disney+. However, if you want to see the footage, you'll have to go through Disney+ and watch the 14-minute special that teases the likes of "She-Hulk," "Moon Knight," "Ms. Marvel," and "Secret Invasion." We've highlighted the first looks provided in the special, as well as all of the surprise Marvel Studios series announcements. Check them out:
