Disney+ Gives Series Orders to Marvel Dramas 'Ms. Marvel,' 'Moon Knight' and 'She Hulk'

During Disney's D23 expo today, Disney+ gave series orders to three original drama series from Marvel - Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She Hulk. Episode counts and premiere date windows were not immediately announced today.

Ms. Marvel focuses on teenager Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American from a religious family in New Jersey who has polymorphous powers, having the ability to stretch and change shape.

Bisha K. Ali (Four Weddings and a Funeral) is writing the drama.

Moon Knight centers on Marc Spector, a former CIA agent who was almost killed by a terrorist named Bushman. His life was saved by the Moon God Khonshu. Now, four personalities dominate Marc's head including Steven Grant, Jake Lockley and Khonshu. They work with each other and fight for control at various times as Moon Knight.

She Hulk follows Jennifer Walters, a lawyer and the cousin of Bruce Banner (played in the Marvel films by Mark Ruffalo) who gets an emergency blood transfusion from him following an injury, thus acquiring Hulk-like qualities.
