What If...?

I'm not really a fan of this kind of animation style.  There are some interesting plots, and I wonder if this is ever going to cross the 616 universe, or if they're going to tackle any of the existing multiverse.

Well the trailer mentions a multiverse...but now that I think about it, what is the difference between an alternate timeline and an alternate universe, anyway?

Based on my understanding, if something different happens in one timeline, it branches off into a new timeline (alternate) which will create a new (alternate) universe.  So the multiverse is basically different timelines that branched off from the original timeline. 

I've been hearing a lot about "Sacred Timeline", so I would guess this would be the Earth-199999 or the MCU?  I'm sure a lot of this is explained in the Loki series, I just need to wait a few more days before I can finally binge watch it.

If I understand it correctly alternate universes (maybe not 'alternate') were always separate, like siblings, while alternate timelines branch off from a universe.

I get it... so an alternate timeline could vary significantly from the original in one specific way, like a major event happened to one person and it diverges from there, but a multiverse can be different in myriad of ways either minute or major.
