If you’re wondering what to do this weekend, Netflix has an interesting suggestion: watch more television. But they’ll make it worth your while, with Saturday’s Tudum event featuring exclusive looks at all manner of upcoming projects, from Glass Onion to the upcoming Witcher spin off, The Witcher: Blood Origin.
Tudum: A Netflix Global Fan Event — to give it its full title — will take place on September 24 with a five-part, four continent virtual event broadcast via Netflix’s YouTube channels, showcasing more than 120 Netflix shows, movies, and games in 29 languages. In other words, it’s a big deal, with programming actually beginning late Friday with the first broadcast out of Korea.
American fans will want to focus on the two-part programming out of the USA and Europe, which begins at 10am Pacific on Saturday. Already scheduled to be included as part of this element of the event are Enola Holmes 2, The Old Guard 2, Wednesday, Jason Momoa vehicle Slumberland, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, The Witcher and The Witcher: Blood Origin, Squid Game, Glass Onion, and the cast of Stranger Things.
What can fans expect? Netflix is already teasing “exciting news” about the third season of The Witcher — delivered by Henry Cavill, no less — while the casts of both Stranger Things and Umbrella Academy will introduce bloopers from the most recent seasons of both shows; there will also be first looks at trailers for Ryan Murphy’s The Watcher and the final season of Manifest, and sneak peaks at upcoming projects including Wednesday, Glass Onion, and more.
It’s all happening on YouTube this Saturday. What else would you want to do with your day?
If you want to get in the mood for some Netflix goodness, maybe you should go watch the teaser for Glass Onion, the second in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out series, again. I mean… it is really fun.
