Aubrey Plaza’s role in Agatha All Along

Agatha All Along has undergone several title changes. Still, climbing all odds, the MCU series has dropped the first trailer and the poster, which unveiled many details for fans to ponder until the show debuted on Disney+. Aubrey Plaza appears to be a mysterious witch, Rio Vidal. 

Fans may wonder who is Rio Vidal in the WandaVision follow-up show. Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness was seen gathering a coven of witches as she attempted to reclaim the powers Wanda Maximoff had. Agatha, however, found herself trapped, and later Rio Vidal asked her to claw her way out of the spell. "Is this really how you see yourself? That witch is gone, leaving you trapped in her distorted spell. Claw your way out," Vidal told Agatha in the trailer.

In a previous chat with Deadline, Plaza gave away a small hint about her character in Agatha All Along. She would go to the Agatha set and “be dressed as a warrior witch with a dagger and stuff.” Her comments on the character explain that her role in the show would be bigger and stronger being a powerful witch with the ability to swing swords.

The trailer also confirms that Vidal knows Agatha well. Vidal possesses the ability to cut through the Scarlet Witch’s Hex, however, she is seemingly not in Agatha’s coven of witches. According to a strong rumor that was swirling around the internet, Vidal, the green witch, is Agatha’s ex. However, the trailer does not exclusively validate the rumor. Regardless, Plaza’s Vidal who appears in her green costume in a few scenes in the trailer shows promising intent reflecting her role having significant essence to the entire narrative.

The Teen then begged her to take him on the legendary Witches’ Road— a magical gauntlet of trials “that, if survived, rewards a witch with what they’re missing” to which Agatha found her interest on the horizon. Agatha and this mysterious Teen “pull a desperate coven and set off down, down, down The Road.”
