Falcon and the winter soldier
It’s impossible to make such a selection without talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe series. After all, they are an important part of the SVOD platform. We therefore start with the presentation Falcon and the winter soldier. This was the second to see the light of day after the end of Phase 3 of the MCU, which ended with the movie Avengers: Endgame. Sam Wilson aka the Falcon hopes to become the new Captain America with Bucky Barnes by his side. It’s a shocking duo facing a whole new terrorist threat.

Let’s continue our superhero streak with the series Hawk Eye. Over the course of six explosive episodes, the archer eventually draws camouflage. As with most Phase 4 productions, the action also takes place after the end of the endgame. Although the conflict is now behind him, Hawkeye, real name Clint Barton, has a difficult past. During the time when half the universe was obliterated, he committed bloody acts in the name of justice. And it is precisely his actions that catch up with him in the series. He will therefore have to take up arms again, but this time for a good cause.

The book by Boba Fett
As its name suggests The book by Boba Fett follows the adventures of the famous Star Wars bounty hunter. The latter is said to have come to a pretty brutal ending in Return of the Jedi, but he finally made it. As for the timeline, this series is right after the events of the second season of The Mandalorian. At the end of the latter we had a first look at Boba Fett and his partner, both on an expedition on Tatooine. Your destination: the former hiding place of Jabba the Hutt. The story begins here on December 29th, 2021.

Unlike the other Marvel series we cited, this one follows the story of a character who was originally a true antagonist: Loki. After completing his redemption, he was killed by Thanos. But how did he get back then? To do this, we must remember the events of Avengers: Endgame. Inadvertently, the vigilante groups changed the past by allowing the god of mischief to escape with the tesseract. Then an alternate reality was created, but the fun was short-lived for Loki as he was captured by a mysterious organization.

Let’s move away from Marvel and Star Wars a little and now turn to “lighter” production. Luca is an animated film that skilfully mixes fantasy and comedy. Our story begins with a young sea monster named Luca who dreams of only one thing: to live on the surface and meet people. In the little mermaid fashion, he will eventually go there against his parents’ wishes. An unexpected event occurs here. When Luca comes out of the water, he loses his scales and takes on a human appearance. A great adventure begins for the child who discovers a whole new world.

Raya and the last dragon
Let’s stay with the imagination Raya and the last dragon. This film shows a fantastic world in which humans and dragons lived in perfect harmony. But one day the fire-eaters had to sacrifice themselves to save humanity from a terrible threat. The problem is that the latter is back after five centuries of absence. To counteract this, the warrior Raya goes in search of a legend: the last of the dragons. However, our heroine does not yet suspect the magical and poignant journey that awaits her.

Star Wars: Visions
Let us now return to the Georges Lucas universe with a slightly different production than the one mentioned above. Star Wars: Visions is an animated series in the form of an anthology, consisting of nine episodes, each of which presents an original story. It’s made by a Japanese animation studio and therefore the styling is different from what is usually done in Star Wars. Nonetheless, this change has been very well received, both visually and narrative, and a Season 2 would be considered, although we don’t have any further information on the subject at this time.

Similar to Falcon, Hawkeye and Loki, WandaVision is one of many series in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unlike the other two, this one has a unique story to say the least. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Scarlet Witch now lives far away from the big cities and has taken refuge in a small town in New Jersey. From there, she’ll recreate a fictional universe straight out of the 50s, and even go so far as to revive Vision, who died in Infinity War, to start an unusual sitcom. Unfortunately, this false reality is quickly turning into a nightmare.
