Wanda Vision is one of the most high-profile episodes scheduled to be launched exclusively on the Disney Plus platform in 2021, but the company announced Wednesday that the show will be released by 2020. Disney revealed the news in a promotional video. The company has not yet announced the exact launch date of Wanda Vision, so it’s unclear whether it will premiere before or after another Marvel series, Falcon and Winter. Adding more episodes will help Disney launch more high-profile shows in 2020, helping it increase the number of subscribers.
Marvel had previously predicted that Wanda Vision would be quoted in Doctor Strange 2, which is scheduled for release on May 7, 2021. It’s considered Disney’s smart idea to air these episodes in advance. Disney plans to air several major episodes in 2020, including Pixar’s most popular “Monsterpower” spin-off, Monsters at Work, and the return of Lizzie McGuire. The early broadcast of Wanda Vision could help attract more users to subscribe to the service. As hbo now faces after “Game of Thrones,” Disney will have to face the question of whether people will cancel their subscriptions as the hit series ends.
When the streaming service launched in November, there were some breakthrough shows, most notably The Mandalorian. This “Star Wars” series (with the help of “Baby Yoda”) has given Disney a successful start. But episodes such as “The Mandalorians” and the series version of “Song and Dance Youth” have only been available for one season. Disney’s start was a success, attracting 10 million subscribers in the first 24 hours of its release, and millions watched the Mandalorians. Now, some viewers want to know when the next big Disney Plus episode will arrive after the end of “The Mandalorian.” Just this week, Netflix’s “Witcher” overtook “Mandalorian” to become the most popular show, ending the reign of “Baby Yoda.”
We are still waiting for many details about Wanda Vision, including its location in Infinity Legends, but more is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
