On the first day of the 2011 D23 Expo, Friday, Aug. 19, a special announcement will be made during a storytelling event featuring writers Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson along with actor David Arquette, star of Disney Junior’s series, Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
The announcement will take place in the Anaheim Convention Center Main Hall. Disney Publishing Worldwide authors Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have written a re-imagining of Peter Pan’s adventures, Peter and the Starcatchers and visitors to the D23 Expo will be invited attend a “family reading event” led Arquette and receive a free book.
It’s all part of the Disney Corporate Citizenship pavilion, where visitors will see how they can take action through Disney Friends for Change, an initiative that helps inspire kids and families to join together and make a positive impact on their world. There visitors can also become “honorary” D23 Green Team members by taking part in a scavenger hunt that will lead them through the Expo in a quest to boost their environmental I.Q. and earn prizes.
