The 2022 Annual Disney Shareholders Webcast took place on March 9. Find out what Marvel and Star Wars announcements were made during the presentation to shareholders. 

On March 9, The Walt Disney Company hosted its annual Disney Shareholders Webcast and with it came the promise of exciting announcements connected to the company’s biggest franchises including Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm.

During the annual presentation, the top dogs of The Walt Disney Company presented to shareholders and fans by sharing a first look at what’s to come for some of its top franchises and properties including Marvel and Star Wars.

Past years have been used to debut first look footage at upcoming movies and shows, confirm release dates for previously announced projects and announce exciting new movies and shows coming soon. This year featured some news, but not near as much as fans were anticipating.

Disclaimer: An original version of this story incorrectly referred to the Disney Shareholders Webcast call as a Disney Investor Day 2022 presentation. This piece has since been updated to reflect the intended purpose of the March 9 call with Disney shareholders. 

Disney Shareholders Day 2022 recap

Heading into the presentation, the big hope by fans was that we might not only learn the premiere timelines for previously confirmed projects such as She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan but also receive new information on casting and other projects in development.

The official Disney Shareholders Day presentation kicked off at 1 pm ET and began with business-focused content and legal information, which was a bit unexpected for those of us looking forward to branded announcements and possible new footage.

After about 40 minutes of topical conversations about the business side of things, Disney shifted its attention towards what’s to come in sharing some updates about its key brands including Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and more!
