Matt Shakman revealed that Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha All Along song in WandaVision nearly had a completely different title.
WandaVision‘s debut on Disney Plus surprisingly feels like a long time ago now that we’ve had The Falcon and The Winter Soldier as well as the release of Loki inching ever closer. But one of the most iconic moments from the series from Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness nearly wound up having a completely different title altogether. As fans will already know (you’re probably humming it as you read this) Harkness’ gloriously villainous reveal came with a fantastic musical accompaniment sung by Hahn herself, Agatha All Along.
During an interview with EW’s The Awardist, series director Matt Shakman explained that the original plan for the the song was calling it That’s So Agatha, before the writers came up with Agatha All Along as they considered everything the witch had been up to in the series. That’s So Agatha is still an interesting title, but the final version of the song definitely works a lot better. Take a look below.
“Originally you had, ‘That’s So Agatha.’ [That] was sort of the idea for [the song]. I remember Kristen saying, ‘We’ve been toying around with Agatha All Along.’ And we thought, great, awesome! Then we had several chats about what, exactly, Agatha had been doing all along so that they could be more specific with it. Then I just remember that Munsters meets Oompa-Loompa song coming in and being like, ‘Oh my God, this is the best thing ever.’”
