The Trickster returns… at some point.
Disney has halted the production of all of its Marvel shows scheduled to air on the Disney Plus streaming service. These shoes include WandaVision, Loki and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Mulan has also been delayed, with director Niki Caro confirming on social media. All these delays are due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and no news on new release windows has been confirmed. Mulan was originally set for a March 27th 2020 release.

Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be an original series starring Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Daniel Brühl. It was originally set to stream exclusively on Disney+ in Fall 2020. Anthony Mackie has confirmed that he will be wearing some variant of the Captain America suit in the series, while Brühl confirms the return of Zemo from Civil War.
Marvel Studios’ WandaVision is an original series with Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany and Teyonah Parris. Originally set to stream exclusively on Disney+ from Spring 2021. Marvel Studios’ Loki is an original series starring the returning Tom Hiddleston, with a previous release window of Spring 2021.
There is currently no news on when production for each series will resume, however, due to the ongoing pandemic, Disney has kindly released Frozen 2 on Disney Plus early, to the delight of many fans. Disney Plus will also be making its way to Europe in the coming weeks and with it comes Disney’s ever-expanding library, along with the fan favourite series, The Mandalorian.
