Disney has dropped multiple trailers in the last week or so as marketing efforts continue to ramp up for many exciting projects that will finally be released.
All of these titles, apart from Star Wars: The Bad Batch, have previously been delayed due to the impacts of Covid-19.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch
On March 30, released a brand-new trailer for Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Bad Batch,” an original animated series launching exclusively on Disney+. “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” makes its debut on Tuesday, May 4, with a special 70-minute premiere, followed by new episodes every Friday starting on May 7.
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch—a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army—each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
On April 3rd, Disney released a new trailer for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow which is coming to theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 9.
Set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow will not only show us what Natasha Romanoff got up to after helping Cap and Bucky escape but it will also introduce us to a set of brand new (to the MCU) characters, most of which are part of Nat’s dark past. Red Guardian (David Harbour), Iron Maiden (Rachel Weisz), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and Taskmaster will all make appearances in the MCU for the first time.
On April 5th, Disney released a trailer for Marvel Studios’ “Loki”, which is coming exclusively on Disney+ on June 11, 2021.
Marvel Studios’ “Loki” features the God of Mischief as he steps out of his brother’s shadow in a new series that takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” Tom Hiddleston returns as the title character, joined by Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant. Kate Herron directs “Loki,” and Michael Waldron is head writer.
On April 7th, Disney released a new trailer for its upcoming live-action “Cruella”, which is a prequel to 101 Dalmatians. “Cruella” will be coming to Disney+ via Premier Access and select movie theatres on May 28, 2021.
“Cruella,” which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
