WandaVision has gained popularity on Disney+ with a new a creative storyline.


“‘WandaVision’ is such a fun show to watch and when I watched it for the first time, I was amazed at the set design and how the characters were written as if they were from that decade. One of my personal favorite things about the series so far is the theme song in the beginning of it since it is so catchy. I am so excited to see more episodes of ‘WandaVision’ and see what twists are in store,” said senior Navdeep Kaur.


“WandaVision” also introduces many new storylines and characters that audiences and critics alike are excited to see on the screen. Based on the first three episodes, it is clear how “WandaVision” varies from preceding “Avengers”-oriented series. Usually, when “Avengers” movies are mentioned, people tend to think of movies with action and comedy. However, this series takes a different approach in that it focuses on the relationship of the two main characters and how they deal with their problems.


“‘WandaVision’ is such a weird and funny show to watch. The homages that they did with shows from the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s so far are amazing and are accurate to the shows of that time. The actors really put their best effort into the show and I am excited to see what the real intention is. I’m so invested in this show that I even watch theory videos about the episodes and what they truly mean,” said sophomore Simrit Kaur.
