The new year is upon us, and with it comes new movies and shows being added to the library of content on Disney's streaming service, Disney+.
There's a fair amount of original shows that we've been expecting in 2020 already, like Marvel's "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," the reboot of popular Disney TV show "Lizzie McGuire," and the second season of the Star Wars series "The Mandalorian."
What we weren't expecting until 2021 was another Marvel show, this one centered around the relationship of Wanda Maximoff and Vision, called "WandaVision."
Which has us thinking, why change the timeline of the series to land in 2020 when people were expecting it in 2021?
There could be a number of reasons that the date change happened, but maybe it's in part to help alleviate a recent drop-off of Disney+ subscriptions, after season one of "The Mandalorian" concluded.
Fans who want more of Baby Yoda still have a long time to wait.
Also, Netflix's original series "The Witcher" has been getting a lot of positive heat, so the demand is already shifting to the latest pop culture moment.
According to an article from Business Insider, "The Witcher" was the top show in the world the week of December 22 to 28, with "The Mandalorian" falling just behind.
Disney+ will definitely need to stay ahead of the game, otherwise Netflix (which already has a constant stream of new content) and other streaming platforms could steal subscribers. If you'd like to see all of what Disney has planned for 2020, click here to see the promo video.
