D23 Expo: Disney’s D23 Expo will soon be held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Read the details here
Coronavirus pandemic restrictions forced conference organizers to postpone last year’s event to this year. Therefore, the biennial event returns to the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday. Although Disney does not release attendance figures, Vargo believes the convention center will be inundated with visitors from around the world. It sits across from Disneyland Resort, Disney’s flagship property.
During Expo D23, Disney’s top studio executives, CEO Bob Chapek and Disney stars will come together with the company’s latest slate of movies, TV shows and attractions, including Star Wars , Marvel, Pixar and Disney Animation. Stars like Lilly Singh from Disney’s upcoming movie “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” and “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” will be heading to Anaheim this weekend to take part in a unique musical extravaganza. This will be the first time an animated series from the Disney studio, Zootopia+, will be available on its Disney+ streaming service, so some lucky attendees will be able to preview it this year. Chris Hemsworth will not be able to attend National Geographic’s “Limitless with Chris” screening.
President of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, Josh D’Amaro, will update guests in Lobby D23 on what’s happening at Disney cruise lines, resorts and theme parks around the world , including Disney World, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. An event called Disney Legends kicks off Expo D23, honoring the contributions of individuals who have contributed to Disney’s legacy, such as Chadwick Boseman, Anderson, Bell and many more.
