The Mandalorian

This is a pretty big week for Disney. The entertainment giant launched Disney+, their exclusive streaming service, nationwide yesterday. Of course, we all know how subscribers have access to nearly the entire Disney vault. But there is also some original content to look forward to. Like The Mandalorian. The highly anticipated series made its debut to coincide with the launch. And yet, if you are still not a subscriber or are not convinced to be one, maybe a clip from the series will change your mind.

Pulled from the series’ first episode, the clip shows the titular character (Pedro Pascal) meet The Client (Werner Herzog), a man who is in need of his services for some unknown reason. He is also someone who has a very intimidating presence, and is guarded by a small group of Stormtroopers, who are armed to the teeth. Not that scares our anti-hero. Check out the clip below, along with a recently released special look video.

She Hulk and Moon Knight title cards

When then Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige came to the D23 Expo to announce that She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel would be three new TV series joining the Disney+ lineup, fans got excited. However, the three new shows were still in very early development without a cast or creative crew.

But now She-Hulk and Moon Knight have found writers to begin working on the projects. According to a new report, Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao will be working on the former, while The Umbrella Academy‘s Jeremy Slater will work on the latter. More on both of these stories, below.

Loki

When it was announced that Marvel Studios would be releasing a number of TV series on Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ it was implied that they would connect to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more so than the previous Marvel TV series. That theory was proven to be true when it was announced that WandaVision would be connected to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

But that isn’t the only show to tie into the Doctor Strange sequel. Now it has been confirmed that Loki will be connected as well. More on the report below.

New 4K ‘Star Wars’ Restoration On Disney+ Messes With Han Solo and Greedo Cantina Scene

Han Solo and Greedo in Star Wars

The ongoing debate on who shot first, Han Solo or Greedo, continues. This honestly wouldn’t be a thing if changes hadn’t been made to the original Cantina scene from the first Star Wars film, in which Han was the first to shoot his blaster at Greedo. However, the controversy started when George Lucas altered it in the 1997 Special Edition, making it look like Greedo shot first, followed by a fatal shot from Han. Other alterations would soon follow, but none as crazy as this.

Now that Disney+ has launched, subscribers are taking a look at what the studio’s streaming service has to offer, including a 4K restoration with Dolby Vision and Atmos. But the impressive upgrade comes at a huge cost to the infamous “who shot first” scene, at least, because fans have notice that it has been further modified. Now it has been made to look like Han and Greedo shot simultaneously. More on the report below.

Disney Plus

Disney+ will be home to over 6,000 hours worth of content, both original titles like The Mandalorian, Lady and the Tramp, and The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and existing titles like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

That’s a lot of stuff to watch, and the best part of it is, you can bring it along with you when you download it. And while most of that downloaded content leaves other streaming services, that will not be the case for Disney+, which will let you keep the downloads even when the content itself leaves the streaming service.
