Disney's Investor Day Date Reveals When Marvel Studios, Star Wars Could Make New Announcements

During Disney's last Investor Day Webcast in April of last year, Disney gave a preview of its Disney+ streaming service and their global launch strategy. Marvel Studios had multiple announcements for original content for the service, including WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, What If...?, and Loki.

On the flip side, announcements for Star Wars were a tad bare by comparison with only news of K2SO joining Cassian Andor in his new series, along with minor details about The Mandalorian.

It has been over a year since the last Investor Day Webcast for Disney, but recent news points to another coming very soon.

Update (9/21): A representative of Livestorm has reached out to The Direct to inform us that the Investor Day "announcement," now deleted, was not in any way official. Livestorm further clarified that, to their knowledge, Disney will not be hosting any Investor Day webcast in the coming weeks.

(9/19): Announced on Livestorm, which is where Disney's last Investor Day’s Webcast was streamed, the next Investor Day's Webcast for Disney will take place on October 7, starting at 10:00 AM Eastern Time.

WHAT THIS MEANS

It is entirely likely that Marvel Studios will have a large presence, as they did last year, especially with all the recent news related to She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel this past week. This is not to mention the constantly changing news and rumors surrounding the release of Black Widow, which will hopefully be clarified to investors and fans.

While its presence wasn't nearly as big, Star Wars fans could still hear news about the franchise. Specifically, news about the Obi-Wan Kenobi and Cassian Andor series could break as both have now begun the first steps in getting back into production after being delayed by the pandemic.

Fans should temper their expectations and not expect any new bombshell announcements, especially since everything was essentially put on pause for several months. It is likely that Disney will discuss current, now progressing, productions. However, attendants could still get a surprise, such as more details on the Star Wars movie Kevin Feige is working on or any new Marvel Studios shows for Iron Heart or Young Avengers.
