During its four-hour investor day on Thursday, Disney announced a whopping 20 new titles spanning across the Star Wars franchise and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, releasing various teasers and trailers along the way for a closer look at some of these upcoming projects as well.

STAR WARS

On the Star Wars side, Disney confirmed a handful of previous rumors and announcements, including Taika Waititi working on yet-unnamed feature film. The highlight of the announcements though was no doubt Hayden Christensen‘s return as Anakin/Darth Vader in the upcoming Kenobi series alongside his prequels co-star Ewan McGregor, as well as a bunch of new shows coming to Disney’s streaming platform Disney+. Rosario Dawson‘s Ahsoka will be getting a standalone series based in The Mandalorian‘s timeline, while another series named Rangers of the New Republic will be based in the same context.

Diego Luna reprises his role from Rogue One in the new series Andor, and Lando Calrissian will also get his own show. Other projects announced include the Patty Jenkins-directed Rogue Squadrons, a mystery series called The Acolyte, a Clone Wars spinoff named The Bad Batch, and a series of animated short films titled Visions.

On the Marvel front, the studio released a number of new trailers for some of its previously announced projects, including WandaVisionLoki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Ms. Marvel and the What If…? series, while confirmed casting information for other titles such as Christian Bale for Thor: Love and Thunder and Tatiana Maslany for She-Hulk.

MARVEL

Of course, Disney also announced an array of new shows and films coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain Marvel 2 with Nia DaCosta as director, a reboot of Fantastic Four tapping John Watts, a show named Secret Invasion featuring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, a War Machine series titled Armor Wars with Don Cheadle, and a third installment of Ant-Man and The Wasp titled Quantumania, with Peyton Reed returning as director.

On top of the release for the two highly-popular franchises, Disney will also be bringing other projects from its live-action, animation, and Pixar inventory to Disney+, 15 of which will be completely new titles.

Elsewhere in entertainment, DC Comics has announced its first-ever Black Batman.
