One of the most exciting things about 2021 is we will finally kick off the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+. Long have we waited and been teased about the upcoming series. On January 15th, we will welcome the first of these with, WandaVision.
Since we are inching close to the release date, Marvel Studios and Disney+ have released a new television spot that you can check out below!
The nine-episode series WandaVision looks to be unlike anything we have seen in the MCU. Blending in classic television with the grandeur of the films we have come to love for over a decade. It will feature Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlett Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Vision, played by Paul Bettany, living idealized suburban lives. But like we see in the trailer, everything is not what it seems.
This trailer features an original theme song written by Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Along with this one, they have created several unique songs for the series that span from the 1950s to the early 2000s.
They both commented about their experience working on WandaVision. “‘WandaVision’ is such a cool, strange, one-of-a-kind project,” says Lopez. “When the director, Matt Shakman—an old friend from my college days—pitched it to us, we didn’t have to think about it. We loved the bright feeling of American sitcoms mixed with the deep sense of unease the story had, and it was a really inviting challenge to help set that tone.”

Adds Anderson-Lopez, “I grew up in the ’80s watching shows from every decade on the networks all day long. Episodes from ‘I Love Lucy,’ ‘Brady Bunch’ and ‘Family Ties’ shaped who I am and how I move through the world. So this project was a dream come true.”
As mentioned by Lopez, WandaVision is directed by Matt Shakman. With Jac Shaeffer as head writer. The composer is Christophe Beck. Joining Olsen and Bettany as castmembers are Kathryn Hahn, Teyonah Parris, Kat Dennings, and Randall Park.
Being that it looks so different than the films, I think it was the smart choice to kick off the exclusive Disney+ series. I am looking forward to seeing what surprises this series has in store for us! Especially being that we were denied MCU content in 2020.
