D23 Expo 2022; Massive Announcements From Disney, Pixar, Marvel, & More

On Friday, Disney fans from all over the world descended upon Anaheim, California, for D23 Expo 2022, a three-day event honoring the whole Disney empire. Expect some big announcements from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and more during the first D23 convention since 2019 (the year its Disney Plus streaming service started) and the company’s 100th anniversary (which is next year, but companies love to prolong these celebrations).

The Anaheim Convention Center, located next to Disneyland, will host D23 2022 from Friday, September 9, through Sunday, September 11, 2022. The event is sold out, but those who weren’t able to get tickets can watch a broadcast of it online.

In other words, there will be a lot of news regarding impending media based on these franchises. This event will be similar to the Star Wars Celebration that took place in the same city in May, but on a far larger scale.
