  • Walt Disney Studios Expo Events

    Walt Disney Studios just released their full schedule of events for the Expo.

    -- The Walt Disney Studios is jumping on the D23 Expo bandwagon with four-days (September 10-13) of exciting programming that includes major overviews of upcoming films by Disney Studios Chairman Dick Cook and Disney-Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter, plus a full schedule of events spotlighting new releases and newly restored digital versions of classic favorites.



    All other film screenings and programs will take place in The Walt Disney Studios Theater (at the Anaheim Convention Center), a custom-built state-of-the-art venue with 3D capability, located within the Convention Center.






    PROGRAM OF EVENTS

    THURSDAY 9/10










    FRIDAY 9/11

    11:00 AM Dick Cook / Walt Disney Studios presentation (in the Arena)













    SATURDAY 9/12

    10:00 AM Disneynature presentation


    Followed by screening of Restored Print










    SUNDAY 9/13

    11:00 AM John Lasseter / Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios presentation (in the Arena)








    I guess this disproves people's theories that Disneyland is offering the after 4 tickets because there won't be anything to do at the Expo past 4:00 PM.

        This is incredible! I think it's going to start becoming difficult to decide which event(s) to go to -- I'll have to pick and choose carefully.

          I wasn't too far off in my 8/16 post hopefully some of the elements I suggested will make it into the events as well.

          'Toy Story' and 'Toy Story 2' 3D will world premiere in Venice on 9/6,

          nice to see the stateside screenings show up here.

          I'd also expect the 9/11 WDS presentations to mirror their ShoWest and "Summer Heatwave'-esque events of the past with numerous announced and surprise celebrity appearances. They'll need to announce some in advance to nudge ticket sales and hold others back for the curiousity factor. Those events always feature promotional giveaways of the t-shirt/mini-poster/etc. variety.

          Some obvious names would include 'The Princess and the Frog's co-directors Musker and Clements, and possible performance as they did recently, with star Anika Noni Rose and composer Randy Newman and Jim Carrey and Robert Zemeckis representing 'A Christmas Carol'. Carrey could own that convention center in an Anaheim minute which he needs to. Bruce Willis' sci-fi thriller 'Surrogates' opens September 25th so that should receive a healthy push as well.

          Looking forward into next year's early releases they could pull from 'When in Rome' with Kristen Bell (also currently shooting another Disney comedy, 'You Again'), 'The Last Song' with Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear and Kelly Preston and of course, the 3D presentation of 'Beauty and the Beast' with producer Don Hahn and hopefully that film's stars and composer Alan Menken.

          And then the big guns of Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Toy Story 3'. Some friendly arm-twisting could lead to walk-ons by Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen. Everyone should hear Hanks when he gets on a roll in front of an adoring live audience!

          Plus Team 'TRON' with an updated promotional push, Nicolas Cage's live-action 'Sorcerer's Apprentice', a 'Rapunzel' presentation and hopefully an official start date (& appearances) inconjunction with the fourth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film (just try to keep producer Jerry Bruckheimer off that stage) and the new Muppets movie would be a huge crowd-pleaser.

          That's just off the top of my head though, official announcements forthcoming.

            Looks like there is no time to go to the parks! It is going to be hard to pick and choose events. I want to go to everything!

              Any guesses as to the capacity for The Walt Disney Studios Theater?

                    One of the press releases indicated the theater capacity was 4,000, I believe. Not the arena, which is much bigger. I imagine capacity is affected somewhat by the need to make the 3d technology optimal. Still, I think 4,000 is a huge capacity for a temporary venue, and am very excited!

                        I've been saying that for a while to combat the naysayers who are angry about the 2 rides that are closed during the Expo, but I'm glad that there is proof now that the day really will be packed with things to do at the Expo.

                          In regards to the capacity questions, the website for the Anaheim Convention Center says that the the Arena seats 7,500 and the third floor ballroom (where the screenings will take place) seats 3,807.

                              No need to top it if it's as good as this! I can only imagine that they would need to provide a lot more to do if capacity exceeds by a larger margin.
