When you’re done scrolling through the gold mines of Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars content on Disney+, Marvel hopes you’re going to be interested enough in its brand to check out a newly-announced non-fiction series called Marvel’s Storyboards. Sadly, this is not a deep dive into the art of creating storyboards for comics or movies (although that sounds like it’d be entertaining, too). Instead, this short-form original series will track Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada around the world as he interviews interesting people – including Hugh Jackman, who’s slated to be a guest in the first season.

Earlier this year, we got one hell of a sneak peek at the first live-action Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian. The project is coming to Disney+ when the new streaming subscription services launches this fall, and it sounds like Lucasfilm and Disney are banking on this being a big hit for them before it even debuts, because writer and executive producer Jon Favreau is already hashing out what will happen in The Mandalorian season 2.

Your new Disney Princess and Prince may be Olivia Cooke and LaKeith Stanfield. The two actors are in talks to star in an untitled Disney+ fairy tale movie, which will be helmed by To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before director Susan Johnson and written by Cat Vasko. The Ralph Breaks the Internet Disney princess scene may just get a whole lot weirder.

Disney+ won’t debut until this November, but we’ve got a first look at one of the shows Marvel Studios is making for the streaming subscription service.
You might remember last night there was a Disney investor meeting in April where some details about the new Marvel Studios shows coming to Disney+ were discussed. During that meeting, the logo for the Marvel Loki series and a piece of concept art from the show. That was initially only for the eyes of Disney’s investors, but now an image from the event has revealed Kevin Feige standing in front of the Loki series first look, and you can check it out below.

Mixing Star Wars and Star Trek terminology may be a faux pas for most fans, but Bryce Dallas Howard has good reason to do it. The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom actress is stepping behind the camera to helm an episode of Disney+’s highly-anticipated upcoming Star Wars series The Mandalorian, which uses groundbreaking technology pioneered by executive producer Jon Favreau. It’s technology so out of this world that when Howard stepped onto The Mandalorian set, she was instantly reminded of a futuristic sci-fi series beginning with the word “Star.” But don’t worry Star Wars fans, her use of a familiar Star Trek term only makes The Mandalorian sound 100% cooler.

Our wallets may be soon taking a hit from the respective launches of Disney and WarnerMedia‘s streaming services, but it’s the reigning streaming giant Netflix that may be taking the biggest hit. We’ve all breathlessly followed the reports of Disney and WarnerMedia pulling their biggest titles — from Marvel, to Star Wars, to Friends — from Netflix after longstanding deals with the streaming giant, and it’s all painting Netflix as a barren wasteland of content in the aftermath. But according to a new report, that may not be the case.
Disney and WarnerMedia shows and movies leaving Netflix may not disappear as quickly from the streaming service as we would assume. And they may even not disappear permanently either.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Love, Simon was the high school romantic comedy that critics and audiences both adored last year. The film focused on Jurassic World star Nick Robinson as a closeted gay high school kid who suddenly starts e-mailing with an anonymous fellow closeted classmate, striking up a romance as pen pals. But that spark is threatened when Simon is suddenly forced to be outed by another classmate who accidentally learns about his secret.
As the first popular, studio-sanctioned gay teen romantic comedy, the movie was a smashing success, and that’s what made The Walt Disney Company want to take the valuable Fox 2000 property and turn it into a TV series for Disney+. However, the Love Simon TV series won’t be focusing on the same main character from the movie. Instead, it will follow two new characters and their blossoming romance in high school. Read More »
Not too long ago, we learned that Frozen voice actor Josh Gad might be working with Once Upon a Time creators Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz on a new show that would bring The Muppets to Disney+. However, it sounds like that’s not all Jim Henson’s beloved puppet creations will be up to on the Disney streaming service.
A new rumor says The Muppets will also be starring in their own variety show-style shorts modeled after a trio of unscripted show formats. That sounds an awful lot like a throwback to the kind of sketches that The Muppets used to be part of on The Muppet Show back in the 1970s, as well as Muppets Tonight from the late 1990s. Read More »
