BURBANK, CA–With the recent launch of Disney+, the internet is abuzz with lots of binge-watching and reminiscing, with users enjoying the service’s brand new content as well. Our sources at Disney discovered this leaked list of upcoming Marvel and Star Wars shows that Disney plans to release. Each of these is sure to be a hit, so we say the sooner, the better!
Captain Rogers’ Neighborhood
Chris Evans will reprise his role as Steve Rogers, post-Avengers: Endgame, in this children’s show. Each episode will feature the retired Captain Rogers wearing a stylish sweater and teaching kinds important life lessons about kindness, justice, and punching Nazis. Several guest starts from throughout the established Marvel films are expected to appear, including Kerry Condon as King F.R.I.D.A.Y.
The Unbreakable Cindy Moon
This series brings to life Cindy Moon, a.k.a. Silk, a comics character with powers similar to Spider-Man’s. The comedic show will follow Cindy’s adventures as she emerges from an underground bunker where she spent years of her life in hiding from supervillain Morlun. With unique spider-powers, some unlikely allies, and all of a middle-school education, Cindy struggles to make her way in the big city. Ellie Kemper is expected to portray the title role.
Charles in Charge
This original live-action sitcom from Marvel will star James McAvoy as Prof. Charles Xavier. The series follows Charles’s comical misadventures as he finds himself living in a home with several much younger students who are under his care. As an homage to the original Charles in Charge series of the ’80s, Willie Aames will reprise his role as Charles’s best friend, Buddy, who’s probably also a mutant or something now in this version.
While it had been reported that the Ghost Rider series for Hulu was cancelled, fans of the character shouldn’t despair. He’s actually going to star in GhostRider/Writer, a reboot of the ’90s children’s series that aired on PBS. The series will focus on a group of teens solving neighborhood crimes and mysteries with the help of the Ghost Rider, a demonic spirit of vengeance who communicates to them by writing messages with fiery tire tracks on pavement. Gabriel Luna was offered the chance to reprise his role as Ghost Rider from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but turned it down to the odd nature of the role in a children’s project. Nicolas Cage, however, jumped at the chance to reprise his beloved role and has been officially cast in the series.
Set in between The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983), this latest installment in the Star Wars saga will take a documentary-style approach to the exploits of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Lando Calrissian as they seek to free Han Solo from his carbonite prison. It’s an expanded version of Jedi‘s opening segment, with behind the scenes explanations, backstage antics from the characters, and more!
