The yr 2023 was a reasonably big one for Marvel and Star Wars exhibits on Disney+. Marvel introduced us Loki season two, What If…?, and Secret Invasion. Star Wars gave us The Mandalorian season three and Ahsoka in live-action, in addition to Unhealthy Batch, Visions, and Younger Jedi Adventures in animation. Will 2024 stay as much as that output or will there be much less?
A press launch from the UK arm of Disney+ states that three Marvel exhibits and two Star Wars exhibits are on the way in which in 2024. The Marvel exhibits are Echo (already confirmed to debut on January 10), Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, and X-Males ‘97. For Star Wars, there’s Skeleton Crew and The Acolyte. That’s it.
Now, the way in which the press launch reads, it could appear as if these are the solely exhibits popping out for every model in 2024. However does that imply the opportunity of any others is already off the desk? We don’t assume so and reached out to Disney and Lucasfilm to remark or make clear. (We’ll replace this piece if and once we hear). However with Marvel’s providing lining up with 2023 precisely (two live-action, one animation), and the Star Wars output additionally lining up—no less than on the live-action aspect—it looks as if a reasonably good guess that these are the exhibits which can be coming and that’s it. At the least for now. (Star Wars will seemingly have some animation stuff popping out too, you’d assume.)
The largest omission right here is Andor, which was introduced to be returning in August of 2024 back at Star Wars Celebration. Nevertheless, that was earlier than the writers and actors’ strikes paused production on the collection, so it appears very doable that the present could get moved till 2025. Or, perhaps, it does nonetheless come out in 2024, however Disney and Lucasfilm merely don’t know if that’s going to be doable or not.
Regardless of the case I, for one, am very excited to see two brand-new Star Wars exhibits, about all new characters we’ve by no means met earlier than. That hasn’t occurred for the reason that first season of The Mandalorian. Echo, Agatha, and X-Males might all be nice, however every is a derivative/continuation. Do you agree? Tell us under.
