The first two episodes of WandaVision, Disney’s latest show and the newest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, are airing this Friday. The nine-part miniseries, which focuses on the life of superheroes Scarlet Witch and Vision after the events of Avengers: Endgame, will be available exclusively on Disney’s premium streaming service. Now’s the perfect time to

if you haven’t already so that you can watch the WandaVision premiere and enjoy the entire catalog of other Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars content.

In a crowded field of streaming services, Disney+ is a relative newcomer that has gained a lot of steam lately — not least of all because of ongoing theater closures that have led to many new films being released online. Disney+ is the go-to streaming platform for Disney properties, which includes not just Disney movies but also Pixar productions (such as the newly released Soul), Marvel shows and films, and all things Star Wars. It’s the exclusive outlet for new series like The Mandalorian and WandaVision as well. Disney+ alone costs $7 per month or a cheaper $70 per year, but if you want a more complete streaming package, you can score The Disney Bundle for $13 per month and enjoy Disney+, ESPN+, and ad-supported Hulu.

WandaVision takes place following the events of Avengers: Endgame, with superheroes Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) living together in a pleasant suburban town of Westview. What at first seems like an idyllic and peaceful life comes into question as Wanda and Vision find themselves pulled into curious situations based on American sitcom tropes throughout the decades, suggesting that their new reality is not what it seems. The setting is clearly different than the sort of superhero content Marvel fans have enjoyed so far, with the miniseries format allowing the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to take its characters in some unique new directions.

The first two episodes of the nine-part WandaVision miniseries will premiere on January 15, with new episodes airing every Friday after that. The series will be available exclusively on Disney+, so

Christmas is only a few days away now, and with retailers and delivery partners overloaded due to the increase in online shopping this year, it's most likely too late to order physical gifts online and have them arrive in time (unless you're willing to shell out the extra cash for express shipping, although even that window is rapidly closing). Thankfully, digital subscriptions make for excellent last-minute Christmas gifts, so if you're frantically shopping around online for something you can give on the 25th, then the Disney+ Subscription Card might be just the ticket. Read on to find out more.

In an increasingly crowded field of online streaming services, Disney+ is a relative newcomer to the scene.
