About WandaVision

When WandaVision was released on Disney+ in January 2021, Marvel fans could barely contain their excitement. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first TV series, and one that seemed to be quite unusual and even downright bizarre from the trailers, WandaVision had big shoes to fill. Happily, it delivered in spades.

The series takes place after the events of the 2019 film Avengers: Endgame, and follows the adventures of Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany). When we first meet Wanda and Vision, they seem to be living a peaceful life in American suburbia. Having settled in the town of Westview, New Jersey, the couple attempt to hide who they really are from their nosy neighbor Agnes (Katherine Hahn) and live out the American Dream.

At first, each episode of WandaVision appears to be a spoof of (or perhaps a loving homage to) a particular decade of TV sitcoms. From I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke Show to Full House, The Office, and Modern Family, each decade’s sitcom tropes are clearly recognizable.

But we soon learn that everything in this picture-perfect suburban setting may not be quite as it seems. With increasing regularity, the outside world starts intruding into their world.

And we eventually discover that this isn’t the real world at all. Instead, the people we meet in Westview, New Jersey, are actually inside a hex created by Wanda, and she’s cast them all as characters in a sitcom that reflects her perfect reality.

It all starts to unravel from there as S.W.O.R.D agents attempt to break into the hex, Vision realizes Wanda is controlling his reality, and Wanda tries to keep her perfect world intact. And before the series concludes, the origin of the Scarlet Witch’s magic powers will finally be revealed.

WandaVision is a unique and enthralling series that kept fans guessing until the end. It also ties in well with the 2022 Marvel film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

So if you want to find out all about the filming location of WandaVision, keep reading for details of where the series was shot (and a few spoilers along the way!).

WandaVision Locations

To create the world of Westview, New Jersey, the WandaVision production team did most of their shooting in the studio. Specifically, the Warner Bros Ranch in Burbank, California, features heavily throughout WandaVision.

Most significant is the ranch’s famous Blondie Street, which is where you’ll find the exterior of Wanda and Vision’s house in Westview. You may even recognize some of the houses in their neighborhood from several other famous productions over the years, including titles like I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched.

Step inside and you’ll find that many interior WandaVision locations were filmed at Trilith Studios (originally the Pinewood Atlanta Studios) in Georgia. The Georgia World Congress Center, situated in the heart of Atlanta, makes an appearance too as the interior of S.W.O.R.D. headquarters.

Disney’s Golden Oak Ranch in California also features prominently in many of the best scenes in WandaVision. It’s where you’ll find sites like Vision’s office building and the Westview Public Library facade.

Let’s take a closer look at where some of the series’ key scenes were filmed, and how to find these locations for yourself.

Fun fact:

Each episode of WandaVision was designed to capture the unique aesthetic and vibe of different TV sitcoms. In line with this theme, the first episode, The Dick Van Dyke Show, was filmed in front of a live studio audience.

The happy couple arrive at their new home scene in WandaVision

Warner Bros Ranch

In episode one of WandaVision, we see Wanda and Vision in black and white arriving in Westview. These newlyweds are in a “Just married” car and look the perfect picture of a happy couple, smiling lovingly at one another.

And as their car crests a rise and we see the town of Westview in the distance, the intro song kicks in. “A newlywed couple just moved to town, a regular husband and wife.” It’s a clear throwback to the sitcoms of the 1950s, and you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve just pressed play on an episode of I Love Lucy.

As they drive through the streets of Westview, Wanda and Vision wave to the mailman before pulling into the driveway of their home. With its white picket fence and peaceful surroundings, it’s a spitting image of ‘50s American suburbia. All the while, the theme song is playing in the background: “WandaVision. She’s a magical gal in a small-town locale, he’s a hubby who’s part machine.”

And after Vision carries his bride over the threshold, it’s not long before the couple settles into a classic ‘50s sitcom scene. As Vision spots a loveheart on the calendar above today’s date, he can’t remember what’s so important about that day — and tries to cover his ignorance.

While the interior scenes were shot in the studio, the exterior of the happy couple’s house is found on the Warner Bros Ranch in Burbank, California. The house sits on Blondie Street, which is so named because the houses were constructed for a film based on the comic strip Blondie.

The happy suburban couple storyline continues as Vision kisses Wanda goodbye and heads off to work. And while Wanda has her first encounter with nosy neighbor Agnes, we see Vision arrive at the bland and uninspiring office of Computational Services, Inc.

There he shares some banter with a co-worker, Norm (Asif Ali). Norm explains that the company produces computational forms, and since Vision’s arrival productivity has gone up 300%. “No one can process the data quite like you do, pal. You’re like a walking computer,” Norm says.

But then Vision remembers what the heart on the calendar was for. His boss, Mr. Hart (Fred Melamed), is coming over for dinner tonight, and if he doesn’t enjoy a pleasant evening Vision will be fired. “You know, I owe my success to being a keen judge of character. No skeletons in your closet, eh, Vision?” the boss asks.

The building that houses Computational Services, Inc is found at Disney’s Golden Oak Ranch in Newhall, California. It’s found on Block A of the ranch’s Business District section and provides the perfect mid-century office setting for the episode.

Monica arrives at S.W.O.R.D. headquarters scene in WandaVision

Georgia World Congress Center

In episode 4, after a few mysterious occurrences in the Wandavision world, we finally start to get a handle on exactly what is happening. This episode begins outside of Westview, just after Thanos’ snap has been reversed by the Avengers.

We see Monica (Teyonah Parris) wake up in hospital to find that during the time she’s been gone, her mother has died. Setting aside her grief, Monica returns to work at S.W.O.R.D. headquarters, but she’s denied access when her swipe card is refused.

“I work here,” she tries telling a guard, but he cuts her off. “If you did, your badge would work, wouldn’t it,” he responds. But before it turns into a scene, Acting Director Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) comes to her rescue.

The entrance lobby of the S.W.O.R.D. headquarters is actually found in downtown Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center. Located on Andrew Young International Blvd, the center boasts almost four million square feet of space.

Monica visits Westview scene in WandaVision

Road Across From Trilith Studios

After discovering that she’s been grounded, Monica agrees to head to Westview to check out a missing persons case for the FBI. As she exits the freeway at the Westview turnoff, she soon comes across Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) talking to a pair of local cops. And that’s when things get weird.

Despite the fact that there’s a “Welcome to Westview” sign in the background, the local sheriff claims that no such town exists. Jimmy also reveals that he’s been unable to contact anyone in Westview.

“So, you can’t reach anyone inside, and everyone on the outside has some sort of selective amnesia?” Monica asks.

“This isn’t a missing persons case, Captain Rambeau, it’s a missing town. Population three thousand, eight hundred, and ninety two,” Jimmy responds. And when the drone Monica launches disappears, they discover that the town is surrounded by some kind of energy field.

This WandaVision filming location can be found just across the road from Trilith Studios in Fayetteville, Georgia, roughly 25 miles south of the city center. But while the road is real, much of the scenery in this scene was created digitally.

Vision wanders the streets at Halloween scene in WandaVision

Rolling Hill Drive and Highpoint Crescent

In episode six of WandaVision, All-New Halloween Spooktacular!, the family gets ready to celebrate Halloween. But Vision now well and truly suspects that something is not right with Wanda and their seemingly perfect life, and he surprises Wanda by telling her that he won’t be trick-or-treating with the family but heading out alone instead.

As Vision wanders the Westview streets, he comes across confusing and disturbing sights, like a couple seemingly stuck in a loop doing the same mundane tasks, and trick-or-treating children and parents standing idly.

And when he finds a dazed and confused Agnes in her car, he knows something is very wrong indeed. Agnes claims she’s lost and soon falls asleep, but when Vision wakes her she comes to with a look of horror on her face: “You. You’re one of the Avengers. Are you here to help us?” she splutters. And in the exchange that follows, Vision learns the terrible truth: he’s meant to be dead.

Unlike the many scenes which were filmed in studio backlots, this WandaVision filming location can be found in the real world. In Williamson, Georgia, to be precise, where Rolling Hill Drive and Highpoint Crescent were both used for filming. This location is found roughly 40 miles south of Atlanta.

Vision and Lewis get stuck at a red light scene in WandaVision

Luther Bailey Rd and Old 85 Hwy

Following the drama of episode six, Vision finds himself teaming up with astrophysicist Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings), who is now trapped inside Wanda’s hex. Vision realizes he and Darcy have an “unspoken connection”, so they hijack a truck to track Wanda down.

Along the way, Lewis delivers a few home truths about Wanda and Vision’s past. “So, Wanda killed me?” he asks. “Yes, but it’s not that simple. You asked her to do it.” Vision of course wants to know why he would have done that. “To save the universe. Well, half of it,” Lewis explains.

Then, out in the middle of nowhere, they get stuck at a red light. “I think that Wanda is creating these impediments to stop me returning home,” Vision realizes.

This intersection is found where Luther Bailey Rd and Old 85 Hwy meet near Senoia, Georgia, less than 40 miles south of Atlanta. And if, like Lewis, you think traffic lights would be “kinda overkill out in the sticks”, you’d be right — there are no stop lights here.

Conclusion

WandaVision is a memorable addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This unique series boasts excellent performances, tight scripts, and high-class cinematography. Olsen and Bettany are charismatic as the show’s two leads, and the show’s ongoing references to iconic TV sitcom tropes are a wonderful addition. And while all that is going on, there’s a much deeper mystery for audiences to try to decipher along the way.

Whether you’re a Marvel diehard or you’re simply a fan of classic TV sitcoms, there are plenty of reasons why WandaVision is well worth a watch. And if you’d like to check out some of the best WandaVision locations, there are plenty of great sites to explore in person.
