Disney's D23 Expo to Feature 'Last Jedi,' 'Black Panther,' 'Thor: Ragnarok,' and More
Disney is getting the jump on Comic-Con this year with its D23 Expo, which will offer attendees exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at upcoming releases like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Black Panther, and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. The studio has just released its schedule for the biennial event, which this year will take place July 14-16 across the street from Disneyland. That’s the weekend before San Diego Comic-Con (July 20-23) — and though Comic-Con is still the nation’s premiere pop-culture convention, Disney’s impressive slate of upcoming movies will likely lure many a film fan from San Diego to Anaheim.
While the specific offerings are a surprise, the D23 press release promises plenty of big announcements, star appearances, advance footage, and behind-the-scenes sneak peeks tied to Disney films in the pipeline for the next few years. Among those name-checked in the release are Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi; Marvel’s Black Panther,Thor: Ragnarok, and Avengers: Infinity War; Pixar’s Coco; Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, and Mary Poppins Returns; and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.
