Comic-Con's annual San Diego expo may have been cancelled but momentum is increasing for online replacement Comic-Con@Home.

Anthology documentary series "Marvel's 616," a look at the Marvel Universe's pop culture fandom, is one of three Disney+ projects coming to Comic-Con@Home between July 22 and 26, 2020.

With a first look co-presented by directors Gillian Jacobs (actress in "Community") and Paul Scheer (writer and actor in "The League") that's set for July 23, "Marvel's 616" joins two more Disney+ panels over the course of the convention.

Animated film "Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe" will be the popular sibling adventure show's second feature-length spin-off when it launches on Disney+ this year.

Vincent Martella (Phineas) and Ashely Tisdale (older sister Candace) will be among the panelists for a July 25 presentation and exclusive preview.

That same day sees a panel for "The Right Stuff," National Geographic's dramatized account of NASA's late '50s and early '60s space program.

Based on a Tom Wolfe book that already spawned a four-time Oscar winner, Disney+'s eight-episode "The Right Stuff" is sending 12 cast members plus two producers to Comic-Com@Home.

Disney had previously confirmed that its Hulu-bound Marvel series "Helstrom" will be at Comic-Con@Home, where it will rub shoulders with stop-motion comedy "Crossing Swords" (Hulu), curse-laden animated sitcom "Hoops" (Netflix), "The Simpsons" (Fox), and limited series "The Walking Dead: World Beyond" (AMC) among others.

Unlike its usual annual San Diego incarnations, the online Comic-Con@Home will be free of charge, with organizers to detail precise viewing arrangements in the lead up to the five-day event.
