Marvel Studios Legends—Friday, November 3, on Disney+
Prepare for Marvel Studios’ The Marvels hitting big screens around the country with three new episodes of this Disney+ series. In “Carol Danvers,” retrace the quest of Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) to discover her truth, repel an alien invasion, and finally stand with the Avengers in their fight against Thanos. In “Kamala Khan,” unpack the surprising journey of Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani) as she goes from a young woman who dreams about hanging with the Avengers, to a fledgling Super Hero who might actually get the chance one day. And in “Monica Rambeau,” relive the life of Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) from her childhood with “Auntie Carol” to her time trapped inside a powerful hex conjured by Wanda Maximoff, which altered her on a cellular level—imbuing her with powers of her own.

The episode’s two stories include: “Smile Valley Farm,” in which Scratch (voiced by Dana Snyder) discovers he loves a game he initially (stubbornly) refused to try, so he’s faced with attempting to hide his growing obsession; and “The Grand Gesture,” where June (voiced by Sue Ann Pien) and Darryl (voiced by Michaela Dietz) accidentally transform Scratch’s ectoplasm into a living being.
