D23 Expo to include Star Wars and Marvel in the spotlight

Postby Tink » Mon Jun 08, 2015 11:31 am

This could get interesting for San Diego Comic Con, as presentations ramp up at Disney events.

Disney announced its lineup for this year's D23 Expo. It includes a preview of both Marvel & Star Wars movies.

The Disney fan event will take place August 14 - 16 @ the Anaheim Convention Center.
The Expo will kick off Friday with the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony hosted by Disney Chairman Bob Iger. After the ceremony, fans will get a sneak peak of Disney's upcoming slate from Disney Animation and Pixar. On Saturday morning, D23 attendees will preview Disney's upcoming slate of live-action films, including those from Marvel and Lucasfilm. Undisclosed special guests will appear at the event.

Earlier this year, we heard rumors that Marvel would be skipping San Diego Comic-Con, which will take place a month before D23. At this point, it's not clear if Star Wars will go to Comic-Con either, given its participation in the Disney-backed conventions -- last month's Star Wars Celebration and D23.

More info could also be provided on a Star Wars theme park on Saturday afternoon when Parks Chairman Bob Chapek discusses the future of Disney's theme parks. The main events will take place in the newly created Hall D23, a 7,500-seat venue located in Hall D, to ensure more guests can see the presentations in person.

Tickets are currently on sale and are available at a discounted price of $67 USD for a one-day adult admission until June 30.
