We’re officially entering the spooky season and while Disney+ already dropped a few scary things in September, they’re doubling down in October. One of their most Halloween-centric offerings on display is “Werewolf By Night,” which audiences first learned about just a few weeks ago during Disney’s splashy Marvel and LucasFilm panel at the D23 Expo.
Directed by longtime Pixar collaborator, and acclaimed composer, Michael Giacchino, “Werewolf By Night” is the first Marvel Halloween special. The trailer was shown during D23 Expo and looked like a beautiful tribute to old school horror films, but also heavy on the (possibly implied) gore and scares. Filmed in black and white, the special feels a complete throwback to the old-school Universal frights of the past; think “Bride of Frankenstein” or “The Invisible Man.” The special follows Gael García Bernal as a man with the ability to become a werewolf, and explores how he uses the power as a means of avenging his bloodline.
“Werewolf By Night” will stream on Disney+ October 7.
On top of that, Disney looks to finally be returning to “the vault.” The complete series “Zorro” will drop on the service starting October 5. “Zorro” followed the adventures of the eponymous outlaw living in 1820s Los Angeles. The series starred Guy Williams and originally aired from 1957 to 1959.
Here is everything else coming to Disney+ in October.
