Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. . . OH BOY! This is massive.

Disney have donned their Santa hat and decided everyone is on the nice list (it is 2020 after all), announcing a host of new movies and series scheduled for Disney Plus – seriously, just trawl their Twitter to realise the size of the cosmic gold that has landed; there's a lot to unpack.

In no particular order, 'Black Panther 2' will explore the world of Wakanda with Marvel Studios not to recast the role of T'Challa in honour or Chadwick Boseman. Paul Rudd returns for a third 'Ant-Man' film, with Peyton Reed directing 'Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania'. Christian Bale joins the cast of 'Thor: Love And Thunder' as the villain Gorr the God Butcher.

While Tatiana Maslany will portray Jennifer Walters in 'She-Hulk' with Tim Roth (the Abomination) and the Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo, also set to appear in the series.


Cue the nostalgia feels with Zac Efron to headline a modern take on '80s comedy 'Three Men And A Baby', Tom Hanks will star in a live-action retelling of 'Pinocchio', Emilio Estevez returns as Gordon Bombay in 'The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers'.

There'll also be a reboot of classic film 'Turner & Hooch (starring Josh Peck), 'Hocus Pocus 2' will receive a spooky sequel to the 1993 Halloween classic, and 'Sister Act 3' (with Whoopi Goldberg) is in development; and see where Buzz Lightyear started life as a young test pilot who became the Space Ranger in 'Lightyear'.


The Star Wars universe will see new storylines explored including Hayden Christensen returning as Darth Vader as he joins Ewan MacGregor in 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' (which will be set 10 years after the 'Revenge Of The Sith'; and 'Andor': "Everything I did, I did for the Rebellion."

'The Acolyte' will be a mystery-thriller that covers the shadowy secrets of the galaxy and the emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era. While R2-D2 and C0-3PO will get their own animated series: 'A Droid Story.

'The Mandalorian' will welcome spin-off series 'Ahsoka' (starring Rosario Dawson) and 'Rangers Of The New Republic'.


Oh, and we didn't forget the new FX series that have been green lit.

Ryan Murphy is developing 'American Horror Stories' a new anthology series spin-off of 'American Horror Story'. 'The Last Man' is a drama series set to star Diane Lane and is based on the comic book series of the same name written by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra.

The first TV series based on the 'Alien' franchise will be helmed by 'Fargo' and 'Legion' creator Noah Hawley. While 'Always Sunny In Philadelphia' has been renewed for another 4 seasons, taking it through to S18.

Without labouring the point, there is so much more to unpack, so best you eyeball the new content for yourself.
