disney+ at comic-con at home

Disney+ is joining the online festivities with Comic-Con at Home, the virtual experience hosted by San Diego Comic-Con. The streamer announced that it will be hosting virtual panels for three of its upcoming original titles, including the animated movie Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe and the anthology docuseries Marvel’s 616.

Disney confirmed the participation of Disney+ at Comic-Con at Home with virtual panels for three of its originals: Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the UniverseMarvel’s 616, and the streamer’s first scripted series from National Geographic, The Right Stuff.

The Phineas and Ferb movie is a feature film spin-off of the popular Disney Channel animated comedy series, while Marvel’s 616 is an anthological documentary series “exploring the intersection between Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters and creators and the world outside your window. Alongside The Right Stuff, a drama miniseries about the original Mercury Seven astronauts, these don’t make for the most exciting line-up that Disney+ has to offer for Comic-Con at Home. Disney+ is clearly keeping their biggest hit The Mandalorian close to the vest, while the lid on scripted Marvel shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier remains as tight as ever. It’s disappointing, but not surprising, but doesn’t bode well for Comic-Con at Home, which is under pressure to be the virtual replacement for the wildly popular San Diego Comic-Con.

Comic-Con at Home will be held on the same dates as the previously canceled Comic-Con, July 22-26, 2020.

Here’s more information on Disney+’s virtual Comic-Con at Home panels:
