More and more, studios are moving away from the big announcements at San Diego Comic-Con, to reveal the future of their catalog whenever they want. This is how Warner launched the DC FanDome a few months ago, just to announce its share of projects. she has in her stomach. It must be said that at the franchise level, between Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, its animation branch, its live action remakes, and other sagas you hadn’t even thought of, there was plenty to do. This year, the D23 took place from September 9 to 11. We expected a lot of crazy announcements, and although that was the case for some conferences (we think of Pixar, which pulled out all the stops), it is clear that on the side of Marvel and Star Wars, it was thinner than expected — we still don’t know more about the new Star Wars movies to come…Nevertheless, in the lot, and not counting some presentations not yet unveiled on the Web (we are still waiting for the trailer Indiana Jones 5), here are the 15 biggest announcements of the weekend and what to remember. On the Marvel side For its first crossover on the small screen, Marvel Studios is adapting a major arc from the comics called Secret Invasion. In this story of conspiracies and extraterrestrial invasion (the Skrulls in this case), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) takes over command of operations after the creation of the SWORD, the intergalactic version of SHIELD At his side, we will find his right arm Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Colonel James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) or even Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). The series, scheduled for 2023 on Disney+, will also see the arrival of Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Olivia Colman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This year, the MCU will celebrate Halloween with a horror TV movie called Werewolf by Night. The title refers to one of Marvel’s oldest characters, Jack Russell aka the Werewolf, who first appeared in 1972. Kevin Feige and his peers want to introduce a darker part of their extended universes, which will come to fruition with the arrival of Blade in the MCU soon. In a retro and black and white atmosphere inspired by cult Hammer films, Werewolf by Night promises to become the first real horror film in the MCU, which is almost gore if we are to believe the first images of the trailer. Answer from October 7 on Disney +. Even if it was only a photo revealed on the fly, we now know the cast of the team of villains like Marvel’s Suicide Squad. Sweet euphemism to speak of disappointment, but who cares. We know that the Thunderbolts will bring together Yelena Belova (Black Widow’s sister), the Red Guardian (Black Widow’s adoptive father), Taskmaster (the villain of… Black Widow), as well as US Agent (the villainous Captain America of the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Valentina de Fontaine (seen in the same series), Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier, and… Ghost, the not-so-bad villain from Ant-Man and the Wasp. Here, here… The film is scheduled for July 26, 2024.Captain America: New World OrderSo, this one, we admit we didn’t see it coming. The great villain of Captain America: New World Order, the first with Sam Wilson in the leading role and without Chris Evans, will be… an ultra-secondary character from the forgotten The Incredible Hulk. Yes, you read that right. We’ll have to go find Mr. Blue, the biologist friend that Banner made online, and who ended up crushed against a wall by the Abomination. If you remember correctly, a drop of our national Hulk’s blood fell on a wound on his forehead, causing him to have frontal lobe mutations. An aspect absolutely never addressed in 14 years, and which justifies the fact that this character becomes… the Leader, one of the emblematic villains of the Hulk. But who will fight against Captain America? We do not yet see the link, nor how the character can return after so long of absence, but we will know in the coming months, since the film is scheduled for May 2024. On the side of Star Wars The Mandalorian, season 3 For the To the delight of fans, Din Djarin and Grogu made a surprise appearance at D23 through the first trailer for season 3. Reunited since the miniseries The Book of Boba Fett, the two inseparable companions will now go to Mandalore, the home planet of the Mandalorians. Din will find there Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff), now leader of her people, in order to return as one of their own after having transgressed the creed by removing her helmet. A new adventure full of surprises and twists in the best Star Wars series, which we will find with pleasure in 2023. We learned a few weeks ago that Jude Law would join the Star Wars stable in a Skeleton Crew series. Currently in production, the latter will focus on a group of kids lost in space during the New Republic era. And while we wait for more info, on a release date or otherwise, we had a first photo, which you see above. From Pixar’s side Perhaps the announcement that surprised and delighted the most the fans of the studio among all the batch of novelties mentioned. A sequel to Inside Out is scheduled for 2024. We don’t know much about the project, but we’ll tell you more about it here. After Buzz Lightyear, the famous animation studio will once again try to deliver a sci-fi adventure, starring Elio. A vague project planned for the spring of 2024, but of which we hold the first concept art. We see this little boy, Elio, who finds himself transported across the galaxy because he is confused by aliens as being an intergalactic ambassador. The Pixar planned for mid-2023 has finally revealed itself a little. It will be based this time on the notion of the four elements, more precisely on the inhabitants of a city where beings of fire, water, air and earth coexist. We will then follow Ember, a young woman of fire, and Wade, a man of water. Release scheduled for June 2023. In 2023, Pixar will unveil its first original animated series, Win Or Lose, to the world. A major project for the American studio, which is evolving in the hands of directors Carrie Hobson (Toy Story 4) and Michael Yates. We will follow the daily life of a softball team in elementary school, just one week with the championships, in a work that will multiply the points of view. Indeed, each episode will revolve around a different character, including the players, the coach, the parents but also the referees of the long-awaited competition. The whistle is scheduled for fall 2023 on Disney+. As for Disney classics After Beauty and the Beast, Mulan and Aladdin, The Little Mermaid will be the next Disney classic adapted into live action. Singer and actress Halle Bailey will camp Ariel there, alongside a solid cast made up of Javier Bardem (King Triton), Melissa McCarthy (Ursula), Daveed Diggs (Sébastien), Awkwafina (Eureka) and Jacob Tremblay (Polochon) . The film, directed by Rob Marshall (The Return of Mary Poppins), will introduce four new songs created for the occasion, and composed by Alan Menken, a big pundit of Disney studios who had already worked on the classic The Little Mermaid. Diving into the ocean soon at the cinema. On the side of new universes After a first attempt at the cinema, with two films released between 2010 and 2013, Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson saga will be entitled to a new adaptation on the small screen. Logan Lerman passes the torch to young actor Walker Scobell (Adam Through Time) in the title role, in a version that is closer to the American author’s novels. As a reminder, the franchise highlights Greek mythology in a contemporary context, where Percy Jackson, only 12 years old, discovers that he is a demigod and the son of Poseidon. To find his place in the divine pantheon, he will have to prove himself in an eventful adventure where saving prophecies, deceptions and manipulations are law. The series will soon arrive on Disney +. Nearly 35 years after the release of the fantasy film, Disney is once again capitalizing on a cult work to turn it into a franchise, or at least, to lay a series. We’ve been hearing about this project centered on Ron Howard’s Willow for Disney+ for some time and it was at D23 that the first trailer was unveiled. A series scheduled for November 30 on the platform with big ears. National Treasure: Edge of History This winter, Disney will revive from the dead a flagship franchise of the 2000s, Benjamin Gates (National Treasure in VO). Exit Nicolas Cage in this completely hot new series in the saga, which will be marked by the arrival of a new adventurer: Lisette Olivera in the skin of Jess Morales, a young woman of twenty who dreams of treasures and major historical discoveries. . If Nicolas Cage will not be there, we will however find Harvey Keitel and Justin Bartha, who respectively played Peter and Riley in the original films. The series National Treasure: Edge of History will land on December 14 on Disney+. Fifteen years after the release of the first film, Disney revives the magic of Once Upon a Time, his musical comedy that combines live action and traditional animation and parodies classics. For the occasion, Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey are back in the roles of Princess Giselle and Prince Charming Robert Philip. In this sequel, the couple leaves the hustle and bustle of New York to settle in the countryside and live there peacefully. But the princess will quickly become disillusioned when she discovers that not all the problems of daily life can be solved with the wave of a magic wand. The film will be released on November 24, directly on the Disney+ platform. This article was co-written by Arthur Cios and Adrien Delage.
