We’re just over one week away from the release of Marvel Studios first-ever live-action television show in WandaVision. Streaming exclusively on Disney+, WandaVision will reunite Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Vision, as they find themselves in a strange and bold new world that is going to change everything that we’ve come to know from the MCU to date.
A brand new TV spot has just been released and it promises a zany, and quirky theme song that is sure to get you in the grove for the first episode. Check it out below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
WandaVision is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living idealised suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Not only doe this new spot showcase the merging of classic American television eras with superhero drama, but we also get a taste of the new WandaVision theme song.
The spot reveals an original theme song written by Oscar®-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen), who penned unique songs for several episodes, spanning from the 1950s to the early 2000s.
“WandaVision is such a cool, strange, one-of-a-kind project,” says Lopez.
“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.”
Adds Anderson-Lopez, “I grew up in the ’80s watching shows from every decade on the networks all day long. 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.”
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have also written additional songs for successive episodes of the series as it morphs in and out of different decades so that each theme is relevant to the ‘decade’ in which it is set.
With its zany, strangeness this is the MCU like we’ve never seen before and WandaVision promises some of the most exciting developments we’ve yet seen in the MCU.
WandaVision will arrive on Disney+ on January 15.
