In what’s becoming an annual tradition, Netflix is holding a livestreamed event called Tudum this year to show off some of its biggest upcoming shows, movies, and games. The streamer has already confirmed that some of its most-anticipated projects will be making an appearance, including its live-action takes on One Piece, 3 Body Problem, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. On top of that, expect some more detail on The Witcher’s upcoming third season as well as other heavy hitters like Stranger Things, Bridgerton, and Wednesday, and probably a few more titles for Netflix’s fledgling gaming efforts. You can keep up with all of the latest reveals right here.

When a peaceful colony on the edge of a galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of a tyrannical ruling force, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a mysterious stranger living among the villagers, becomes their best hope for survival. Tasked with finding trained fighters who will unite with her in making an impossible stand against the Mother World, Kora assembles a small band of warriors — outsiders, insurgents, peasants and orphans of war from different worlds who share a common need for redemption and revenge.
As the shadow of an entire Realm bears down on the unlikeliest of moons, a battle over the fate of a galaxy is waged, and in the process, a new army of heroes is formed.
