Disney+ Comic-Con@Home Panel Slate Isn’t What You’d Expect

     July 1, 2020


Disney+ unveiled the slates for their virtual ComicCon@Home panels, installments devoted to Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe (based on the insanely popular Disney Channel animated series), Marvel documentary series Marvel 616, and the miniseries remake of The Right Stuff, the first National Geographic scripted series on the service (based on the iconic book by Tom Wolfe). While the line-up is somewhat disappointing for anyone hoping for some Mandalorian season 2 details or updates on Marvel Studios projects like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision or Loki, it still gives a good sense of what is on the horizon for the most magical streaming service around.

Per the official press release, here are the details on all three panels:
