- Moon Knight
No casting news was revealed for Moon Knight. However, Feige gave some hints about what the show will be.

"The character Moon Knight is a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder and these multiple identities that live inside him are very distinct characters in the series. The backdrop of our story is incredible Egyptian iconography. Egyptology is something the world's always been fascinated by, and we're going to tap into the fun and bold way in Moon Knight."
- Secret Invasion

Disney+ will be the home to a series of shorts featuring Groot going on a series of adventures meeting "several new and unusual characters."
- The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
What's this? A live-action holiday Guardians special? It's real, and it's probably going to be as funny as you'd expect. "One of the best things about expanding the MCU to Disney plus, is that our team of Marvel Studios is finally able to do some of the things we've always wanted to do, but didn't quite have the right outlet for, like produce our first ever live-action holiday special," Feige said. "In irreverent Guardians fashion, the Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special is going to be a lot of fun, especially since James Gunn is back to write and direct. In fact, we're going to shoot it during production of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3." The special is scheduled to arrive during the 2022 holiday season.
