As we approach 9 a.m. ET, when the Disney Plus Day festivities kick off, let’s talk about the top five things we hope to see fall through the day:

Obi-Wan Kenobi teaser: This leaked online yesterday, so it’s safe to say we’ll see it someday. No footage, but it contains concept art and plot details. And Ewan McGregor teases another lightsaber duel between Obi-Wan and Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader!

Mrs. Marvel trailer: Marvel has already released a teaser about the next series on the cover after Hawkeye, but we’d like to get a fuller picture of what to expect from the adventures of Kamala Khan.

Star Wars: Andor teaser: Earlier this week, Disney’s CFO confirmed that Ms. Marvel and the prequel Andor will be released in the July-September 2022 time frame. Fans have already spotted some of the performance on a sizzle reel revealed last December. Seems like time to see something new!

The Mandalorian season 3 sneak peek: The OG Disney Plus series is filming now, so let’s not expect much. But a silly reel or behind the scenes featurette would be very welcome.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness teaser: The next MCU film after the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, the release date of Doctor Strange 2 has been pushed back to May 6. However, six months seems about right for the first teaser trailer.

The United States is waking up now and Disney Plus Twitter has come to life. There’s nothing in the tweet below that we didn’t already know, but it confirms that there will be news about Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars.

Concept art for the upcoming Obi Wan Kenobi series has appeared online, along with a leak behind the scenes that has already been debugged from YouTube likes. Here’s hoping this means that Disney will officially release that video as part of its Disney Plus Day celebrations, as this art seriously excites us.

A now deleted tweet of the UK Plus Disney’s Twitter account promises great things for Disney Plus Day, including some “exciting announcements”. What exactly could those ads be? We’re still hoping for some news on the upcoming Marvel and Star Wars series, and maybe a trailer or two.

Unfortunately the video that was tweeted was little more than an acronym reel, and did not reveal any of the secrets yet to come.

Disney made all the stops to excite people for Disney Plus Day, so they sent us this nice pin from everyone’s favorite alligator anti-hero. I wonder if there are other variants there?

Don’t forget, Disney Plus currently offers a monthly subscription for just $ 1.99 (or £ 1.99 in the UK), and Disney is very keen to emphasize that fact. It has even put together a handy little infographic showing us some of the new content you can watch as you sign up.

Of course there is more to Disney Plus than Disney and Marvel. The House of Mouse also owns National Geographic, the producers of the whimsical documentary series “The World According to Jeff Goldblum”. Season 2 landed this morning, and it’s so ravishing that you can’t afford to miss it.

What else? Well we already knew about The Simpsons in Plusaversary, a new short in which, according to the press release, “‘The Simpsons’ hosts a Disney + Day party and everyone is on the list … except Homer. With friends from across the service and music suitable for a Disney princess, Plusaversary is the Springfield event of the year. ” We haven’t watched it ourselves yet, but we’ll do that later.

Another family favorite will be Olaf Presentations, a brand new original series of shorts featuring Frozen’s beloved snowman. There are five in all, each lasting 4 minutes and we suspect kids will be glued to them this holiday season.

And there is more. Much more in fact. For example, you also get Home Sweet Home Alone, Disney Plus Original film that reimagines the popular holiday franchise. That is available on the service now and we suspect many families will be watching it this weekend.

So what else has been added to the Disney Plus Day celebration service? Well, another massive new release is Jungle Cruise, a fantasy adventure film based on the amusement park attraction and starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. Watch the official trailer below or just go to Disney Plus now and start watching.

And, as expected, Disney just added a whole bunch of content while we hit the 8th GMT. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is one of the new additions. You can watch it now, either in widescreen or IMAX Enhanced version, which comes with an enlarged image format.

The first thing we get excited about is the expected arrival Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on Disney Plus.

This will be a great thing for anyone who has not been able to see Shang-Chi in cinemas. The film, with Simu Liu as the MCU’s first Asian superhero, was a huge success when it appeared on the big screen in September. In fact, TG writer Rory Mellon said Shang-Chi rekindled his passion for the MCU.
