D23 held a lot of trailers, and only a few were in the parking lot. But, just joking … Every Marvel and Lucasfilm trailer Disney was released at D23 this weekend.
It showed off many trailers, teasers, and short scenes from all the Disney stuff coming this year and next. Particular attention was delivered to shows and films coming to Disney Plus and new access to its Star Wars and Marvel franchises.
Access and in-person attendance were required to see some of the most awesome sneak previews. You’ll presumably have to wait for your first glimpse at Indiana Jones, Ironheart, Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania. But the business still took the time to settle occasional teasers and trailers for the rest of us.
Willow: The next flick to the 1988 film about a wizard who few believe in, yet who holds the world from an evil sorceress with the help of a baby, a swordsman, two brownies, a witch turned goat, and a princess, got a new trailer that displays more of the plot. Similar to Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and House of the Dragon, this looks like a big epic fantasy. But unlike those shows, this one peeks like it will have a sense of wit. Willow premieres on November 30th on Disney Plus.
Star Wars: Andor: The prequel to the genuinely excellent Rogue One finally got another trailer with plenty of intrigues. It will surely set you up for all the angst and misery an exhibit about doomed-to-die individuals is wont to do.
Star Wars: Tales Of The Jedi: Disney had many live-action fares to show off. It also took the time to offer us a trailer for its animated anthology series, Tales of the Jedi. The show contains episodes focused on the training of Ahsoka and the rise (and maybe fall) of Count Dooku. All six episodes will begin streaming on Disney Plus on October 26th.
The Mandalorian: We’re getting another season of The Mandalorian after two years. This teaser trailer was slow on plot but showed the Mandalorian reunited with his adopted son, Grogu, and an abundance of action affected the other Mandalorians like Bo-Katan (played by Katee Sackhoff). The Mandalorian retrieves for Season 3 in February 2023.
Secret Invasion: Samuel L. Jackson goes back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Secret Invasion. It’s an easygoing adaptation of the significant Marvel comic book crossover that discovers Earth invaded by shape-shifting aliens. Jackson is again coming as Nick Fury and is joined by replacing characters Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman), Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle). Olivia Colman also comes up in the trailer. The six-part limited sequel is set to premiere in 2023.
Werewolf by night: Marvel showed off a black and white trailer for its Werewolf by Night special, which stars Gael García Bernal as the lycanthropic protagonist, Jack Russell. The trailer also gives us our first — albeit brief — glimpse at Man-Thing. We don’t know too much about the premise of the memory just yet, but it debuts on October 7th on Disney Plus, just in time for Halloween.
She-hulk: Marvel debuted a new She-Hulk trailer yesterday showcasing what’s in store for the rest of the season, with Daredevil (who was also featured at the Event teasing his Disney Plus return, Born Again) making a guest appearance at the very end. New episodes of She-Hulk stream on Disney Plus every Thursday.
Thunderbolts: Marvel revealed the cast for 2024’s Thunderbolts while it is not an official trailer. The film, which follows a squad of reformed supervillains, will star David Harbour (Red Guardian), Olga Kurilenko (Taskmaster), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Fontaine), Florence Pugh (Yelena), Hannah John Karmen (Ghost), Wyatt Russell (US Agent), and Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes).
Fantastic four: Marvel has given us the release date for the next Fantastic Four, and it’s set to premiere on November 8th, 2024. Details about the cast remain nonexistent, although we know that Matt Shakman, who directed WandaVision, will serve as the director of this movie following Jon Watts’ departure in April. Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, said we’ll have to wait until next year’s D23 to find out more.
