The future of Disney lies firmly in the wildly successful Disney+ streaming service. In December, the creative forces-that-be at Disney unleashed a slew of announcements and trailers regarding Marvel and Star Wars projects. Today, Disney+ revealed the premiere dates for two highly anticipated shows heading for Disney+, Loki and Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch, the animated spinoff of The Clone Wars, will begin streaming on May 4th. This date is sure to stick out to Star Wars fans considering it is Star Wars Day (“May the Fourth Be With You”). The series follows the elite and experimental clones known as the Bad Batch. Following the aftermath of The Clone War and the execution of Order 66, the clones will need to find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy. Each member of the team possesses an exceptional skill that has them standing head and shoulders above other clones. The series hails from Star Wars stalwart Dave Filoni and will feature Dee Bradley Baker as all of the clone troopers in the series. Additionally, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen will reprise her role as Fennec Shand from The Mandalorian.
Moreover, Marvel’s Loki will hit Disney+ on June 11th. Following the overwhelming online response of WandaVision, Marvel Studios continues the MCU transition to Disney+ with The Falcon and the Winter Solider in March. This means fans will have a constant stream of MCU content on Disney+ for the better part of 2021. Loki will follow the God of Mischief, portrayed by Tom Hiddleston. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Loki finds himself in a mysterious place at the mercy of the Time Variance Authority (or TVA). Hiddleston will be joined by Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Ra, and Richard E. Grant in the series.
