Disney has announced plans to host larger than ever presentations at the D23 Expo 2015 convention, August 14–16, which will include Lucasfilm and Marvel.
In the new 7,500 seat venue called “Hall D23,” Walt Disney Studios will have two days of panels set to include previews of animation and live-action upcoming films.
Zootopia, Finding Dory, Alice Through The Looking Glass, and The Jungle Book, are among the announced films that will be featured during these presentations, along with “Star Wars” and Marvel movies coming soon.
In addition, the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony wil take place on Friday, August 14, to kick off the D23 Expo 2015, hosted by Disney CEO Bob Iger.
On Saturday Afternoon, August 15, Disney Parks and Resorts wil host a presentation of what’s coming to Disney’s theme parks, hosted by new Parks Chairman Bob Chapek. The last D23 Expo did not have a Parks and Resorts presentatio, so fans can expect some new excitement this year.
The new Hall D23 rivals the sizes of the biggest convention halls at the popular San Diego Comic-Con, which Disney, Marvel, and Lucasfilm will reportedly largely bow out of this year in favor of presenting at the D23 Expo.
Tickets for D23 EXPO 2015 are available at a discounted price for a limited time. Until June 30, 2015, tickets are $67 for a one-day adult admission and $48 for children 3–12. Tickets for members of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club are $58 for a one-day adult admission and $42 for children. Multi-day money-saving tickets are also available.
