  • News D23 Expo: Bob Iger, Animation and Walt Disney Studios Arena Presentations Announced

    Some big news from the Disney folks this morning. There will be two big arena presentations from the studios at the upcoming D23 Expo in August. The first, from Animation, will launch with a welcome from Bob Iger and then a full presentation hosted by John Lasseter. That's going to be a hot ticket. Then, on August 10th, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn takes the stage to talk about upcoming live action films. Both presentations promise exclusive information, movie clips and surprise celebrity appearances. In previous years, they've had some really big names including Johnny Depp dressed as Jack Sparrow.

    There's a deep slate of animated and live action films that I'm certainly curious about, and I'm sure you are too. Normally, we'd expect these two presentations to sell out, and I'm sure they will. But this time around, there's a 2,000 seat over-flow theater for those who miss out on the main stage. Still, I'd recommend getting in line in front of the convention center at least an hour before opening and then making a bee-line to the arena to queue up for the 10am opening of the Expo so you don't miss out on Bob Iger and John Lasseter on the morning of the 9th.

    10 a.m. Friday OH NOOOO! I was hoping that nothing would conflict with the Mystic Manor presentation. This is gonna be a tough decision.

      The D23 Expo FAQs state that the D23 Arena line opens at 8:00am and will be a separate line. FYI............

        Will the overflow room open the same time as the arena? Seems like it would be easier to go there rather then rush to the arena.

          Aww I was hoping to see the Phineas and Ferb presentation! Sorry Dan and Swampy, a John Lasseter headed panel comes first.
          I have never made it to the Live Action studio presentation. It has to be the hardest panel to get into in all the Expo!
