Marvel is definitely raising the stakes and changing the game with What If..?, not just because it is an animated show, but because of the way it will tell the stories. What used to be a linear universe will forever change with alternate realities finally being canon to the MCU. Since the show would premiere in a few, here is everything you need to know whether it is safe for kids to watch and what is it rated.

What If..? has an impeccable premise: it will re-tell the stories we already know from a different angle with the twists and turns on the things that were not supposed to happen but did anyway. It will feature almost all the characters we know and love in the MCU and each of the episodes will tell us what could have happened had things went a different direction.

It is ambitious, to say the least, to have a show break what has already been established but more than that, it is a collection of alternate realities told by Uatu the Watcher as it is an anthology series where every episode will tell a different tale, from various time settings here on Earth to the corners of the multiverse.

What is Marvel's What If..? Rated? Is it Safe for Kids to Watch?

What If..? will have different stories for every episode and Marvel is targeting to have a PG-13 or a TV-14 rating for each. This means that while some scenes may be allowed for kids, parents are strongly cautioned that some may not be appropriate for children under 13 years of age.

Each of the stories varies, some may be suitable for kids and some may not. One is a political thriller, one has Doctor Strange going dark, one focuses on Fury, and more until all the nine episodes are filled. The show is also confirmed to have a second season in the works with the same episode count as the first. Some stories continue until the end and definitely, others will coincide with one another.

Marvel's What if..? will be releasing weekly and exclusively on Disney+ where it would be available in the highest streaming quality, 4K. While there are no plans yet for the DVD or Blu-Ray release, it would stay on the streaming platform even after all the episodes already aired.

The first episode of What If..? will arrive on August 11, 2021, at 3 AM EST, only on Disney+.
