SDCC 2020 may be cancelled this year, but [email protected] is set to bring us some great reveals later this month. While we don’t have a full list of what to expect yet, Disney+ has just announced that they will be holding panels for some upcoming shows.
In an official press release from Disney, we know that their streaming platform is coming to [email protected] with three shows: Marvel’s 616, Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe, and a Nat Geo scripted series called The Right Stuff. We don’t have any trailers for these upcoming shows yet, but I bet that’s what we’re getting come [email protected]
Here’s the official description for each show:
“Marvel’s 616” explores how Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters and creators exist within the “world outside your window”. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, explores the intersections of storytelling, pop culture and fandom within the Marvel Universe. Join directors Gillian Jacobs, Paul Scheer and executive producers Sarah Amos and Jason Sterman as they discuss the making of this Disney+ original anthology series with moderator Angélique Roché.
Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe
Join the creators & executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, director Bob Bowen and stars Ashley Tisdale, Vincent Martella, Maulik Pancholy and Dee Bradley Baker as they share an exclusive sneak peek of Disney+’s upcoming “Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe” and discuss the origins of this iconic animated series!
The Right Stuff
From Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and Warner Horizon Scripted Television, “The Right Stuff” is the first scripted Disney+ original series from National Geographic. The series takes a clear-eyed look at the early days of the US space program. The series follows seven of the military’s best pilots as they become astronauts for the newly-formed NASA at the height of the Cold War. Competing to be the first in space, these ordinary men achieve the extraordinary, inspiring America to turn towards a new horizon of ambition and hope. Moderated by former NASA Astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, the panel will feature cast members Patrick J. Adams (“Major John Glenn”), Jake McDorman (“Lieutenant Commander Alan Shepard”), Colin O’Donoghue (“Captain Gordon Cooper”), Michael Trotter (“Gus Grissom”), Aaron Staton (“Wally Schirra”), Micah Stock (“Deke Slayton”), James Lafferty (“Scott Carpenter”), Nora Zehetner (“Annie Glenn”), Shannon Lucio (“Louise Shepard”), Eloise Mumford (“Trudy Cooper”), Eric Ladin (“Chris Kraft”), and Patrick Fischler (“Bob Gilruth”), Showrunner and Executive Producer Mark Lafferty, and Executive Producer Jennifer Davisson.
With Comic-Con being a big deal and all, I’m sure there are some fans who would’ve wanted an update on the upcoming Marvel miniseries or at least a teaser for the second season of The Mandalorian. If anything, I think Disney isn’t prepared to make their announcement yet, or they’re just keeping mum about it to surprise everyone on the day itself.
Catch [email protected] when it launches July 22–26.
