How much money and power does Disney have? Enough that they can hold their own damn convention to show off all their own product. Other studios have to share the stage at some rag-tag event like the San Diego Comic Con while Disney, rolling around in Jonas Brothers and “High School Musical” money, can go to the Anaheim Convention Center, and show off all of their shit. (That’s going to be slogan by the way: “D23 Expo: Check Out Our Shit”)
The D23 Expo (the “23” commemorates the fourth through twenty-third “Mighty Ducks” movies that never were) will offer looks at ABC’s upcoming shows, behind-the-scenes look at what’s coming to Disney theme parks, a look at Disney’s history and their classic films, but who cares about all that.
What’s going to bring a slew of journalists to Anaheim from September 10th through the 13th is that Disney will be offering first looks at “The Princess and the Frog”, “Rapunzel”, “isney’s A Christmas Carol”, “Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland”, “TRON”, “Toy Story 3”, “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” and “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. As someone who probably won’t be attending this conference (since I don’t live in California), I’m a little worried as to what this means for what Disney will bring to humble Comic-Con.
