Right now, this very minute, in Anaheim, California, the Disney D23 Expo is going on. What is it and why should YOU care? Let me tell you why, in as few words as I can…
1. What is the D23 Expo
Since 2009, the bi-annual D23 EXPO has celebrated all the magic, wonder, and adventure of Disney at this remarkable gathering created especially for the passionate and loyal fans of Disney. D23 EXPO presents three full days of “inside-the-magic” experiences you won’t find anywhere else, including exclusive sneak peeks at upcoming films from The Walt Disney Studios, dazzling celebrity appearances, unforgettable presentations given by Disney luminaries, a look at what’s coming from Disney Parks and Resorts and Walt Disney Imagineering, the Disney Legends ceremony, and the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibition, which spotlights crown jewels from Disney’s timeless legacy.
2. Why Should You Care?
If you haven’t noticed, Disney is fact becoming the entertainment center of the universe. Nevermind the fact that Disneyland Parks and Resorts have been the mainstay of family entertainment and enjoyment since before I was born, but over the last decade or so, Disney has brought under it’s umbrella, a plethora of entertainment heavyweights. From PIXAR in 2006 (makers of Toy Story, Monsters Inc, The Incredibles, Inside Out and others), to Marvel Entertainment back in 2009 (you’ve heard of Marvel right? The comic book and action hero company that has spawned some of the biggest moneymakers in recent years?), to Lucasfilms in 2012 (makers of the Star Wars films), You can start to see why, when Disney talks, it would be in your best interest to LISTEN!
