Disney held its semiannual D23 event this weekend, where it showed off a whole lot of trailers, teasers, and brief scenes from all the Disney stuff coming this year and next. Particular attention was paid to shows and films coming to Disney Plus, and new entries in its Star Wars and Marvel franchises.

A ticket and in-person attendance were required to see some of the coolest sneak previews, which means you’ll probably have to wait to get your first look at Ironheart, Indiana Jones, or Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania. But the company still took the time to drop a few teasers and trailers for the rest of us.


The sequel to the 1988 film about a wizard who few believe in, yet who saves the world from an evil sorceress with the help of a baby, a sorceress turned goat, and swordsman, two brownies, and a princess, got a new trailer that shows more of the plot. Like House of the Dragon and Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, this looks to be a very big epic fantasy. But unlike those shows, this one looks like it will have a sense of humor. Willow premieres on Disney Plus on November 30th.

Star Wars: Andor

The prequel to the truly excellent Rogue One finally got another trailer that has plenty of intrigue. It will be sure to set you up for all the angst and misery a show about doomed-to-die people is wont to do. Star Wars: Andor premieres Septmeber 21st.

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi

While Disney had plenty of live-action fare to show off, it also took the time to give us a trailer for its animated anthology series, Tales of the Jedi. The show includes episodes focused on the training of Ahsoka and the rise (and maybe fall) of Count Dooku. All six episodes will start streaming on Disney Plus on October 26th.

The Mandalorian

Finally! After two years, we’re getting another season of The Mandalorian. This teaser trailer was light on plot but shows the Mandalorian reunited with his adopted son, Grogu, and plenty of action involving the other Mandalorians like Bo-Katan (played by Katee Sackhoff). The Mandalorian returns for season three in February 2023.

Secret Invasion

Samuel L. Jackson returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Secret Invasion. It’s a loose adaptation of the major Marvel comic book crossover that finds Earth invaded by shape-shifting aliens. Jackson is back as Nick Fury and is joined by returning characters Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle). Olivia Colman also pops up in the trailer. The six-part limited series is set to premiere in 2023.

And speaking of Don Cheadle, Disney finally announced that his character, Rhodey, is finally getting his own long-rumored Disney Plus series, Armor Wars.

Werewolf by Night

Marvel showed off a black and white trailer for its Werewolf by Night special, which stars Gael García Bernal as the lycanthropic protagonist, Jack Russell. The trailer also gives us our first — albeit brief — glimpse at Man-Thing. We don’t know too much about the premise of the special just yet, but it debuts on Disney Plus on October 7th, just in time for Halloween.


Marvel debuted a new She-Hulk trailer yesterday showcasing what’s in store for the rest of the season, with Daredevil (who was also featured at the event teasing his Disney Plus return, Born Again) making a guest appearance at the very end. New episodes of She-Hulk stream on Disney Plus every Thursday.


While not an official trailer, Marvel revealed the cast for 2024’s Thunderbolts. The film, which follows a squad of reformed supervillains, will star David Harbour (Red Guardian), Olga Kurilenko (Taskmaster), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Fontaine), Florence Pugh (Yelena), Hannah John Karmen (Ghost), Wyatt Russell (US Agent), and Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes).

Fantastic Four

Marvel has given us the release date for the next Fantastic Four, and it’s set to premiere on November 8th, 2024. Details about the cast still remain nonexistent, although we do know that Matt Shakman, who directed WandaVision, will serve as the director of this movie following Jon Watts’ departure in April. Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, said we’ll have to wait until next year’s D23 to find out more.

There’s a surprise in the sky tonight.

Jupiter will be about 367 million miles away from Earth this evening. While that may seem like a long way, it’s the closest it’s been to our home planet since 1963.

During this time, Jupiter will be visible to the naked eye (but binoculars can help). You can check where and when you can get a glimpse of the gas giant from this website.

Missing classic Mario?

One fan, who goes by the name Metroid Mike 64 on Twitter, just built a full-on 2D Mario game inside Super Mario Maker 2 complete with 40 levels and eight worlds.

Looking at the gameplay shared on Twitter is enough to make me want to break out my SNES, or at least buy Super Mario Maker 2 so I can play this epic retro revamp.

The US might still force TikTok into a data security deal with Oracle.

The New York Times says the White House is still working on TikTok’s Trump-era data security deal, which has been in a weird limbo for nearly two years now. The terms are basically the same: Oracle plays babysitter but the app doesn’t get banned. Maybe it will happen now, though?

Netflix’s gaming bet gets even bigger.

Even though fewer than one percent of Netflix subscribers have tried its mobile games, Netflix just opened up another studio in Finland after acquiring the Helsinki-based Next Games earlier this year.

The former vice president of Zynga Games, Marko Lastikka, will serve as the studio director. His track record includes working on SimCity BuildIt for EA and FarmVille 3.

Vietnam’s EV aspirant is giving big Potemkin village vibes

Idle equipment, absent workers, deserted villages, an empty swimming pool. VinFast is Vietnam’s answer to Tesla, with the goal of making 1 million EVs in the next 5-6 years to sell to customers US, Canada and Europe. With these lofty goals, the company invited a bunch of social media influencers, as well as some auto journalists, on a “a four-day, multicity extravaganza” that seemed more weird than convincing, according to Bloomberg.

Today, 39 years ago, the world didn’t end.

And it’s thanks to one man: Stanislav Petrov, a USSR military officer who, on September 26th, 1983, took the decision not to launch a retaliatory nuclear attack against the US. Petrov correctly guessed that satellite readings showing inbound nukes were faulty, and so likely saved the world from nuclear war. As journalist Tom Chivers put it on Twitter, “Happy Stanislav Petrov Day to those who celebrate!” Read more about Petrov’s life here.

Deepfakes were made for Disney.

You might have seen the news this weekend that the voice of James Earl Jones is being cloned using AI so his performance as Darth Vader in Star Wars can live on forever.

Reading the story, it struck me how perfect deepfakes are for Disney — a company that profits from original characters, fans' nostalgia, and an uncanny ability to twist copyright law to its liking. And now, with deepfakes, Disney’s most iconic performances will live on forever, ensuring the magic never dies.

City of London police tweeted Saturday that the teenager arrested on suspicion of hacking has been charged with “two counts of breach of bail conditions and two counts of computer misuse.”

They haven’t confirmed any connection with the GTA 6 leak or Uber hack, but the details line up with those incidents, as well as a suspect arrested this spring for the Lapsus$ breaches.
