November 12th marked the second anniversary for the Disney+ release. And as every official account on social media reminded us, the streaming service had something special prepared for all of us. But some fans have been left disappointed and wanting more, even more if you compare it to last month’s DC Fandome, where we had announcements and trailers for upcoming DC projects. To begin with, many movies and TV series were released that same day. The most important ones were Shang-Chi, Jungle Cruise, Home Sweet Home Alone and the second season of The World According to Jeff Goldblum, amongst others. Followed by the release of the IMAX Resolution for many movies on the platform.
What About Star Wars?
Maybe one of the biggest teasers of the day was the one for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. We only had some concept art, and although it may not seem like much, it gives a general idea of what to expect from the Ewan McGregor project: from off-world adventures to a fight with Darth Vader. It also confirmed that Hayden Christensen would be reprising his role as the main villain of the saga.
What About Marvel?
The other big part of the celebration was the Marvel Studios Special Feature, where they did a recap of all the Disney+ projects we had all along 2021, and we saw just a couple of glimpses of three upcoming ones, followed by some announcements. We saw a small teaser of Oscar Isaac as Moon Knight, Tatiana Maslany and Mark Ruffalo in She-Hulk and Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel.
The Biggest Surprise
Probably the announcement no one was expecting was a revival of the X-Men Animated series from the 90’s. Alongside Batman, it was one of the most influential superhero series and responsible for the love of this team. Many people still remembers it fondly and many still enjoy rewatching it until today. We can guess more than a few fans cheer in joy with the announcement.
What Other Things Can We Expect?
We also had several announcements and trailers for different movies and TV shows. Some of the most notables are Hocus Pocus 2; a remake for Cheaper By the Dozen; Disenchanted, a sequel to the movie Enchanted, and a live-action adaptation of Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers. On the other hand, Natgeo announced several documentaries: Limitless, with Chris Hemsworth, and Get Back, about the Beatles.
