Disney+ is joining the virtual online fun of Comic-Con@Home, which is being hosted by San Diego Comic-Con. They’ve announced that they are planning panels for three of their upcoming projects and those projects include Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe, the anthology docuseries Marvel’s 616, and National Geographic’s The Right Stuff.
Yeah, I know they won’t be bringing any of the big series being developed for Marvel or Lucasfilm. The studio is obviously saving those for their own conventions like D23 and Star Wars Celebration. But, they are throwing Comic-Con a bone with these three shows. The only one that I’m actually interested in is The Right Stuff.
Here’s the information that was shared for the panels:
A Look Inside “Marvel’s 616” on Disney+
Thursday, July 23, 1:00 p.m. PT
“Marvel’s 616” explores how Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters and creators exist within the “world outside your window”. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, explores the intersections of storytelling, pop culture and fandom within the Marvel Universe. Join directors Gillian Jacobs, Paul Scheer and executive producers Sarah Amos and Jason Sterman as they discuss the making of this Disney+ original anthology series with moderator Angélique Roché.
Disney+’s “Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe”
Saturday, July 25, 12:00 p.m. PT
Join the creators & executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, director Bob Bowen and stars Ashley Tisdale, Vincent Martella, Maulik Pancholy and Dee Bradley Baker as they share an exclusive sneak peek of Disney+’s upcoming “Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe” and discuss the origins of this iconic animated series!
Blast Off with Disney+’s “The Right Stuff”
Saturday, July 25, 1:00 p.m. PT
From Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and Warner Horizon Scripted Television, “The Right Stuff” is the first scripted Disney+ original series from National Geographic. The series takes a clear-eyed look at the early days of the US space program. The series follows seven of the military’s best pilots as they become astronauts for the newly-formed NASA at the height of the Cold War. Competing to be the first in space, these ordinary men achieve the extraordinary, inspiring America to turn towards a new horizon of ambition and hope. Moderated by former NASA Astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, the panel will feature cast members Patrick J. Adams (“Major John Glenn”), Jake McDorman (“Lieutenant Commander Alan Shepard”), Colin O’Donoghue (“Captain Gordon Cooper”), Michael Trotter (“Gus Grissom”), Aaron Staton (“Wally Schirra”), Micah Stock (“Deke Slayton”), James Lafferty (“Scott Carpenter”), Nora Zehetner (“Annie Glenn”), Shannon Lucio (“Louise Shepard”), Eloise Mumford (“Trudy Cooper”), Eric Ladin (“Chris Kraft”), and Patrick Fischler (“Bob Gilruth”), Showrunner and Executive Producer Mark Lafferty, and Executive Producer Jennifer Davisson.
These panels join a growing slate of panels that include several shows from Disney TV Studios, Bill and Ted Face The Music, and some shows from Hulu. I’m a huge fan of both Archer and What We Do in The Shadows and I’m sure they’ll end up having fun and entertaining panels.
Comic-Con@Home is a free event, and it runs from July 23-26.
