After Evil (and Evil 2 to come), The Queen of Snow White and the seven dwarfs could come back with a lot of other villains in a series specially designed for them.
For its entry on the market of SVoD, Disney has decided to make noise. The Mandalorian, the first series of Disney + is in production and we know more about the plans of the platform.
In fact, in addition to multiple sets from Star Wars, the MCU, High School Musical , or even Monsters & Cie, who will be among the new content of the new streaming platform, Disney+, a series dedicated to the biggest villains of the firm’s large ears would be currently in development.
This is the Twitter account of Production Weekly who is responsible to share the news :

The announcement has not been officially confirmed but if this project is still very mysterious, he seems to be focused by the writers Steve Pearlman (known for his work on Once Upon a Time) and Michael Seitzman (showrunner of Quantico). The title leaves little doubt to the characters that we could see back between Cruella, Ursula, Scar or Jafar, they are many.
Evil has paved the way in 2014
In addition to this novelty, Disney + should have new titles from the MCU. After the announcement of a series around Loki, the other on Vision and Scarlet Witch, and a third on the soldier of The winter and The Falcon, Kevin Feige talked to Slashfilm :
“This will be an integral part of the MCU. The action of these series will take place sometimes in the past, such as Captain Marvel, or about the same time as the movies. What I can tell you, is that what happens in these series with these characters will have consequences in their next appearances at the cinema, because the stories that we develop for Disney + have been written in parallel to those that we will explore after the Avengers: Endgame.”
So, yes the words of the boss of Marvel did not announce a specific series. However, with two, three or even four films a year, and now more series to follow as soon as 2020, which should all coincide at one time or another, the MCU has never been so present on our screens, big and small.
