For ‘Star Wars’ fans, there is Jon Favreau’s new series ‘The Mandalorian’, which will be available when Disney+ launches in November. And although they won’t be available at launch, new episodes of cult favorite animated series ‘The Clone Wars’ will be released within the first year.

For that one, Alan Tudyk will return to voice the wry droid K-2SO.
Unfortunately, none of the original Marvel series will be available at launch, but the wait shouldn’t be too long, as the live-action ‘Falcon & Winter Soldier’, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will be available within the first year, along with the animated ‘What If…?’. ‘WandaVision’ and ‘Loki’ are set to premiere in the second year.
