‘WandaVision’ Release Date Pushed Up to 2020

It's a welcome surprise.

We didn’t know it at the end of 2019, but 2020 is going to be the year of WandaVision.

At 9:00 a.m. on the first day of the year, the official Disney+ Twitter account posted a hype video for the new year. It confirmed the upcoming streaming debuts of some of last year’s biggest films—Toy Story 4!—alongside new series and reboots like Lizzie McGuire. Most of it’s not all that unexpected, but right in the middle of a brisk montage of titles was WandaVision, the Marvel series that was initially slated for 2021.

It goes by quickly, so later in the day it reiterated the fact that WandaVision is coming out ahead of schedule.

WandaVision is a six-episode limited series with hour-long installments. It stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles as Wanda Maximoff (a.k.a. Scarlet Witch) and Vision, respectively.

Kathryn Hahn, Kat Dennings, Randall Park, and Teyonah Parris round out the cast of the show, which was directed by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Game of Thrones veteran Matt Shakman.

Unlike most of the other titles included in the video, no clip of WandaVision was included. Instead, it showed the same ’50s-inspired art we saw at D23.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is the other Marvel series making its debut this year, while LokiHawkeye, and What If…? are still slated for 2021.

Disney+ has been online for nearly two months, and with the exception of The Mandalorian it seems as though legacy content, from the Disney vault to Star Wars and MCU movies, has been the big draw. We weren’t expecting that situation to last very long, and WandaVision‘s bumped-up release date shows Disney is eager to build up the library of original content on its streaming service.
