Marvel’s first Disney Plus TV sequence, WandaVision, is ready to shake-up the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a reality-bending escapade that pulls from Scarlet Witch and The Imaginative and prescient’s personal comedian historical past. However in a meta-wink, creator Jac Schaeffer has threaded the saga via the historical past of tv itself.
A brand new TV spot for the sequence hints at how, with a mild-mannered Wanda Maximoff watching daytime TV one second, and zapping again in time within the subsequent. The sequence seems to parody the whole lot from Dick van Dyke, Bewitched, and Step By Step. And true to the spirit of these retro reveals, the in-world universes could have their very own theme songs. The spot reveals an authentic theme music written by Frozen’s Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who penned a number of new tunes for WandaVision.
“WandaVision is such a cool, strange, one-of-a-kind project,” says Lopez in a information launch. “When the director, Matt Shakman — an old friend from my college days — pitched it to us, we didn’t have to think about it. We loved the bright feeling of American sitcoms mixed with the deep sense of unease the story had, and it was a really inviting challenge to help set that tone.”
“I grew up in the ’80s watching shows from every decade on the networks all day long,” Anderson-Lopez added. “Episodes from I Love Lucy, Brady Bunch and Family Ties shaped who I am and how I move through the world. So this project was a dream come true.”
Watch (and hearken to) the brand new spot above. WandaVision premieres on Disney Plus on Jan. 15.
