Megan McDonnell, a story editor on the Disney+ series ‘WandaVision’, has written the script for the sequel, with ‘Ms Marvel’ star Iman Vellani and Teyonah Parris, who stars as Monica Rambeau in ‘WandaVision’, also on board to star.

While in true Disney style no details about the plot have been revealed as yet, we know that the sequel will be set in the present, unlike the original film.
