Flora and Ulysses
Check the first trailer for upcoming Disney+ title Flora and Ulysses, which stars a damn fine squirrel (courtesy of our MTL colleagues) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Alyson Hannigan. You’ll be able to see it yourself come February 19th.
The sequel gets an early release in the UK on Sky Store. It’ll cost you £15.99, a small price to pay for a show featuring large-scale, outstanding VFX by our talented colleagues.
Marvel’s new nine-ep show that brings the MCU to the small screen kicks off from today with the first two episodes available on Disney+.
