After the successful run of the Infinity Saga, Marvel Studios is set to embrace an exciting new chapter of episodic storytelling, and WandaVision will get the ball rolling this month.
The Disney+ series will reunite Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, but the latter's return is quite a surprising one considering the character died at the hands of Thanos during Infinity War. Despite that, it seems that Vision is alive and well in the trailers for WandaVision, and his mysterious resurrection will no doubt be one of the central focuses of he show.
So far, the marketing for WandaVision has been primarily focused on the sitcom influences that will be carried out in the show, like recreating scenes from Bewitched and Modern Family. It was even confirmed that, at some point, the upcoming MCU show will recreate the iconic opening sequence of The Brady Bunch.
And now, another interesting bit of information about WandaVision has emerged that will certainly boost the excitement of MCU fans and Disney/Pixar lovers.
Marvel Studios officially released another trailer for WandaVision filled with exciting new footage. On top of that, the main highlight of the reveal is the confirmation that the Disney+ series will feature original theme songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
The duo have written award-winning songs for Disney's Frozen franchise as well as Pixar's Coco.
Some of the lyrics of the original song can be seen below, perfectly teasing the married life of the powerful MCU couple.
"They're a newlywed couple.
Just moved to town.
A regular husband and wife."
WHAT THIS MEANS
Based on this information, it seems that Marvel Studios is going all-in to present WandaVision as the franchise's unique entry to Phase 4. On top of the sitcom-based influences, the addition of original theme songs essentially completes the TV show experience of the upcoming MCU Disney+ series.
The inclusion of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez to an already-stacked WandaVision crew bodes well for the show, considering the duo's proven experience in creating outstanding songs for Frozen and Coco. The pair managed to create catchy songs for the aforementioned animated films, and it looks like the trend will continue in WandaVision, especially after hearing the first few lines of one of the original songs that will be featured in the series.
There's also a strong chance that WandaVision will look to create their own version of iconic sitcom theme songs, replacing the lyrics to tailor fit the narrative of the upcoming episode.
Meanwhile, the trailer's new footage showed glimpses of Wanda and Vision's twins as well as providing hints on how reality is slowly falling apart in Westview.
Another interesting takeaway from the latest teaser is the presence of a helicopter toy that Wanda discovers in her yard. For context, previous promo spots for WandaVision showed a helicopter (presumably from S.W.O.R.D.) surveying the outer parts of Westview, and it's possible that this could be the same one that was featured in the recent trailer. By connecting the dots, it is likely that an outside object will be turned into something different once it goes straight to the alternate reality that Wanda created.
Whatever the case, all will be revealed when WandaVision premieres on January 15 on Disney+.
