consumers are guaranteed a giant sized library of movies, shorts, tv shows, and documentaries old and new from Disney and all of its acquired accessories like PIXAR, FOX, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic
National Geographic? WoW! Sounds exciting. NOT!!!
Sometimes they show ladies with naked boobies. You should check it out.
The Clone Wars and Rebels. I really dug both of them -- and both are full of EU easter eggs and nods to obscure SW shit.
Thanks for the suggestion. I will give them a try this weekend.
TCW is more of a gritty (and I do mean gritty; people die brutally in almost every episode) war series while Rebels is more of a "team" drama type of show. Each does a great job with these disparate premises. And the shows are connected. Characters from TCW appear in Rebels. It's cool. There's a ton of worldbuilding and a bit of Force lore in there as well.

In other words, if you want to be able to understand the stuff going on in the next Doctor Strange movie, you’ll apparently need to watch WandaVision. I guess I’ll just have to read up on online spoilers, because I’m not signing up for Disney+.
For the people who can't connect dots, yeah, maybe.
I haven't bought much outside of a couple graphic novels since 1990.
I know the basics of WandaVision. Running around the net I know they turned Wanda into another gal who couldnt handle power (pet peeve of mine). There's the whole "no more mutants" stuff. The children with Vision who don't really exist.
So basically they are doing Wanda creating her own reality that's going to mess with the multiverse.
I'm sure the Dr.Strange movie will stand on its own & watching WandaVision will simply enhance the understanding of the movie.
Connect the dots, people.
Feige is comic book. You know, the sort who buy a title they usually dont buy because their favorite character crosses over into it.
Gotta get them all, right?
And then there's the "don't need to waste my money on that, I'll look at it in the comic shop when I'm picking up my regulars.
What after all, is a halo? It's only one more thing to keep clean.
Yeah I call bullshit on this. It's just being said as a ploy to get more people to sign up for Disney+. I'm not going to waste my time watching shows revolving around characters that I have zero interest in just so I can understand some small minor detail in one of the movies. It's not like all the movies are needed to understand the others. I didn't see Ant Man 2 and it had zero effect on my ability to understand Endgame. Hell, Captain Marvel wasn't even needed to have been watched either. The movies will tell you enough to not have to waste time on these shows.
When it was announced that WandaVision, Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and several other new Marvel shows are on the way soon, it's hard not to let out an exasperated sigh. Especially when it was announced that we need to watch them to understand upcoming blockbusters like Doctor Strange 2.
As Marvel Studios Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige noted in an interview earlier this month, people will need to keep up with at least a couple of the Marvel shows on Disney+ in order to follow the timeline set forth in MCU Phase 4. Specifically, Feige noted that the events in WandaVision and Loki, for instance, will play a hand in upcoming blockbusters, including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
This Decision Feels Like A Ploy To Get People To Buy Disney+
Kevin Feige telling people that watching the Marvel shows on Disney+ is practically a requirement for their upcoming movies feels like a dirty ploy to get people to buy into their streaming service.
when you have a producer telling people that they must watch something to understand something else, that strikes me as a commercial attempt to sell their streaming service rather than a convincing desire to get people to check out their streaming shows. I prefer the option of choosing to watch these TV series without making them feel like requirements.
if Disney is going to make it seem like it is force-feeding its content down our throats, I've got the inclination to spit it back out. So no, I have no desire to watch these new streaming shows out of corporate demand.
