The Marvel Cinematic Universe often has some of the most jaw-dropping cinematic scenes and landscapes that really knock the ball out of the park. However, most of such thrilling scenes are the result of excellent CGI, which Marvel is often criticized for. But that is not the case for the upcoming Marvel show, Agatha All Along.

After going through numerous title changes, the official and final title was just announced Tuesday at Disney’s upfront presentation. While the cast and crew looked excited that the show has finally gotten a release date, Kathryn Hahn, Joe Locke, and Patti LuPone described to Deadline what the best part of the shoot was.

“The thing about this show which I thought was so thrilling that Jac Schaeffer who wrote it, and also WandaVision, it was very important to her and Mary Liviano, our producer that there be as minimal CGI. So there is very little that is not practical magic… Sets are incredible… It was just delicious… It was an immersive experience.”

Revealed Hahn to the news site. Remarking how great it was filming for the upcoming MCU show, the trio also revealed how stunning the sets were. But the real draw was the famous Witches’ Road that left them in tears.
