Marvel’s Storyboards Starring Joe Quesada Is Heading to Disney+

As we near the U.S. launch of Disney+, the ultimate streaming destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more, on November 12, a new Marvel New Media non-fiction project has emerged! Marvel’s Storyboards is the third Marvel New Media series to head to Disney+, following the previously announced Marvel’s 616 (Working Title) and Marvel’s Hero Project.

The 12-episode non-fiction original series will follow Joe Quesada, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, as he explores the origin stories and creative drives of storytellers of all mediums, backgrounds, and experiences. Guests include Robert Lopez (songwriter, Book of Mormon, Avenue Q), Samhita Mukhopadhyay (Executive Editor, Teen Vogue), Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Johnny Weir (Olympic figure skater), and Ed Viesturs (high-altitude mountaineer).

Each episode, which spans 10-15 minutes, of Marvel’s Storyboards will also dive into each visionary’s relationship with Marvel as well as a personal account of how they overcame a personal or professional hurdle.

In an interview with Wired, Quesada likened it to a popular series. “A comparison that everyone knows is Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” Quesada says. “We go on locations, but instead of food or culture being the focus, the focus is a guest, the way they tell stories, and their story.”

“The real thrill to me is to find out, ‘What’s your story?’ revealed Quesada. “People tell their stories in all different ways. It’s not just writing, drawing, or filming. Athletes tell stories in how they perform. Dancers tell stories with their bodies.”

The premiere date for Marvel’s Storyboard will be announced at a later date.

Disney+ is launching in late 2019, Disney+ will be the ultimate streaming destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. From The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer and International segment, Disney+ will offer ad-free programming with a variety of original feature-length films, documentaries, live action and animated series and short-form content, along with unprecedented access to Disney’s incredible library of film and television entertainment. The service will also be the exclusive streaming home for films released by The Walt Disney Studios in 2019 and beyond, including “Captain Marvel,” “Avengers: Endgame,” “Toy Story 4,” “The Lion King,” “Aladdin,” and “Star Wars Episode IX.” The service will launch in the U.S. on November 12 for $6.99/month or $69.99/year.

She’s one of the biggest new characters to debut in the Marvel Universe in over 20 years, and today Marvel is proud to unveil your first look at Angela – redesigned by Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer & superstar artist Joe Quesada! Angela, created by New York Times Best Selling writer Neil Gaiman & industry icon Todd McFarlane, makes her dynamic debut into the Marvel Universe this June, in the star studded conclusion to the critically acclaimed event Age Of Ultron with Age Of Ultron #10!

“Angela is going to make her mark rather quickly. She’s going to hit the ground running and cut a large swath through the Marvel Universe – both literally and metaphorically,” explained Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer, Marvel Entertainment. “ We have huge plans for her, and the mystery of who she is and where she comes from is something I think Marvel fans are going to be blown away by. Actually, I know they will!”

However, Angela isn’t the only one making her way over to the Marvel Universe as Neil Gaiman makes his long awaited return to Marvel in over six years! Starting this July, Gaiman teams with blockbuster writer Brian Michael Bendis and fan favorite artist Sara Pichelli to take the angelic bounty hunter to the outer limits of the Marvel Universe in an all new arc starting in Guardians Of The Galaxy #5! Alongside Star-Lord, Iron Man, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora & Groot – Angela must help the Guardians take down threats putting the galaxy at risk, showing why she’s one of the most feared women in the Marvel Universe!

“It’s no coincidence that Angela’s debut comes around a time when we’re reminding fans that there’s a reason we call the space our stories take place in, the Marvel Universe,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “What Neil and Brian have planned for the character in Guardians of the Galaxy is going to definitely turn some heads, and nobody can miss where it goes from there!”

The arrival of Angela to the Marvel Universe marks one of the most important moments in comics history! With a major player like the fearless warrior making her presence known – no fan can miss how her debut impacts the Marvel Universe and beyond! It all begins in the universe shattering Age Of Ultron #10 in June, and continues in the hottest new book of the year, Guardians Of the Galaxy #5!
