The one-hour special goes deep behind-the-scenes to see the Marvel show’s groundbreaking recreations of classic sitcoms and use of early TV filmmaking methods.
Disney+ has just released a new one-hour special, Assembled: The Making of WandaVision, an all-encompassing look at Marvel Studios’ first, and arguably most unusual, streaming series.
WandaVision blends classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) – two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The hit series is directed by Matt Shakman; Jac Schaeffer is head writer.
The new special goes deep behind-the-scenes of this highly groundbreaking series. Join Olsen, Bettany, and WandaVision’s creative team to learn how the production’s surprising concept took shape by drawing inspiration from classic sitcoms. They’ll show how the crew went to great lengths to emulate various filmmaking methods used during the early years of television. Discover the challenges and rewards of performing an entire episode in front of a live studio audience. Spend time with newcomers to the MCU, such as Teyonah Parris and Kathryn Hahn, along with returning favorites like Kat Dennings and Randall Park.
The next two highly anticipated Marvel Studios / Disney+ series will hit the streamer soon: Falcon & The Winter Soldier debuts March 19, followed by Loki, which debuts June 11.
