In a few weeks, Expo D23 will host its bi-annual showcase of Disney content for fans at the Anaheim Convention Center. And while it has long been sold outside, the event will take a lots panels, presentations, visits to exhibitions and conversations with special guests online for fans at home to watch.
That said, before having too much hopewhich will not include any live-action Disney Animation, Pixar, Disney Studios, or wonder panels. (Lucasfilm is a fairly understated presence at this event As is recently took its place star wars Celebration 2022 few months ago.) For these events you can check io9 for updates as we will have in-person editors.
But if you still want to check out D23 from afar, the offerings aren’t too shabby, even without the most prominent panels included. Disney fans will get eight hours a day of live entertainment with Expo D23 [LIVE] (who understand D23Expo.com/live, D23.comand D23 social platforms including Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch); there you will find the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony as well as signs from Disney Branded Television, Disney Games and Marvel Games, and as well as Disney ParksExperiences, and Products.
