Are you still with me? It looks like we are going to be spoiled for choice with Disney, Marvel and Star Wars content on Disney+ and in theatres in the coming years. The company also intends to bring out 100+ new titles across all of its brands each year.

That should definitely make up for the lost year that was 2020.
