The first two Disney+ series are starting production in the next couple of weeks as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and WandaVision go in front of cameras very soon, but Marvel isn’t slowing down with their high-budget Disney+ series.
Back at D23 Expo, Kevin Feige confirmed the Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She Hulk series were coming and while people think those won’t be out until 2022; there’s a lot of evidence that they’re sooner that they think.
According to Charles Murphy, Ms. Marvel begins filming in April in Atlanta:

This earlier start date actually makes more sense than what Discussing Film reported last month, when they said it’d film in September, as according to Daniel Richtman; they’re already screen testing people for the role.
The screen test reportedly involves Kamala talking to a “Cap” (it’s not clear if it’s Sam or Carol) explaining how she got her powers when the Terrigen mist was spread around the world, and how she was watching the New Avengers train.
There hasn’t been an event in the MCU yet that spread Terrigen mist, except for that little thing with fish oil in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so it’s possible there is going to be something happening in the future where she’ll get her powers from the mist being spread globally.
Filming in April means the show is possible for a 2021 debut, which also makes sense with Disney+. They’re going to want to have series that begin when another one ends, as that’s how you keep people subscribed. If there’s a constant stream of content, it cuts down on the people who sub for a month, binge a show, and then cancel.
People think there would be too much Marvel content for Disney+ in one year, but that’s exactly their goal for the streaming service.
