Almost Everything Disney Announced on Investor Day 2020

Must read

Disney just dropped a fuck ton of shows on Investor Day 2020. And I mean a fuck ton.

From movies to television series, across Hulu, FX on Hulu, Disney+, National Geographic, Lucasfilm, Disney Animation, Pixar, and yes, Marvel Studios, there were huge updates revealing fresh details about known projects.

Over the next few years we’ll have about 10 Marvel series, 10 Star Wars series, 15 Disney live actions, Disney Animation, Pixar series, and a whole host of other shows and movies from the various branches of Disney.

I’m still reeling from the overload of information, albeit with the Lion King running in the bacground. And I thought DC Fandom made my mind boggle.

Let’s just get down to it.

Raya and the last Dragon is set for theatrical and streaming launch on March 5th 2021
