Disney+ is bringing out all the major projects of all the big franchises in the business. Marvel Studios is bringing out the very first installment of Marvel Cinematic Universe in the form of WandaVision. WandaVision is currently on its last episode that is scheduled to air this Friday. WandaVision will be followed by Falcon and The Winter Soldier that is slated for a March 19 release.
Two of the biggest franchises that are owned by Disney surely include Marvel and Star Wars, all of their film library is strictly owned by Disney. Disney announced in 2019 that it will be shifting gears and will be expanding the libraries of both the franchises with the upcoming live-action shows.
The Mandalorian became the very first live-action show of the Star Wars series, generating heavy reviews and praise for its nostalgic setting and action sequences. On the other hand, Marvel Studios brought WandaVision as the first entity of phase four of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However, The Mandalorian just finished its run on the second season and production has begun on three projects simultaneously one of those being The Mandalorian season 3 and the other two being The Book of Bobba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Back in 2019 Star Wars announced that it had multiple plans regarding the live-action shows with Obi-Wan Kenobi being one of them.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi show will focus on the story of the titular character played by Ewan McGregor with the antagonist played by Hayden Christensen. Both of these characters will be reprising their previous roles from the Star Wars prequel series. A new word has been coming out of the Disney headquarters that another actor has been cast in the show. The casting came in the form of Indira Varma who is a familiar face to all the Game of Thrones fans.
Her role in the show is being kept a secret for now but the fans can expect many more cast announcements in the coming months as the filming commences this summer. Until then the audience can brace themselves for a roller coaster ride into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the series finale of WandaVision and the premiere of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
