Disney is generally known for making animated movies and/or musical films with amazing music. The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Frozen, Aladdin, The Beauty and the Beast, and The Little Mermaid are only some of them, but it never happened that a Marvel project features a great, catchy song that would ring in our ears for weeks after listening to it. Well, not before WandaVision that is.
Terrific song Agatha All Along was released earlier this year, in the seventh episode of Marvel’s Disney+ show, during the scene when it was revealed, well, that it was Agatha All Along, and not Mephisto as most of Marvel’s fanbase thought it would be at the time. The song recently won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, and now it’s been nominated for Grammy in the category Best Song Written for Visual Media.
The song was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who are known for popular songs Let It Go from Disney’s movie Frozen and Remember Me from Pixar’s movie Coco. Both of these songs earned them an Academy Award in 2014 and 2018, respectively. They have also already won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media back in 2015 for Let It Go.
WandaVision premiered in January this year and it was the first Disney+ show set in Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, who reprised their respective roles of Wanda and Vision in Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series consisted of nine episodes, and the seventh episode revealed Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness as the main villain. Hahn will return as Agatha in her own spin-off Agatha: House of Harkness, which is now in development for Disney+, while Elizabeth Olsen will reprise the role of Wanda, now known as Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is set to hit theaters next May.
