D23 Expo 2022 runs September 9-11 in Anaheim, California, and will be full of Disney fun, from the theater to the parks, and everything in between.
The big presentations will take place in “Hall D23,” 6,900-seat venue located in Hall D of the Anaheim Convention Center.
Here’s what we can look forward to:
Friday, September 9
Disney100 will kick off at D23 Expo, celebrating 100 years of The Walt Disney Company as it enters its second century.
The festivities begin with the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony, before formally kicking off the Disney100 announcements.
The names of the 2022 Legend inductees will be announced in the coming weeks, and we’ll let you know when they are.
Then in the afternoon, Disney will offer new details, first looks, sneak peeks, surprises, and announcements regarding upcoming theatrical and Disney+ titles from Disney Live Action, Pixar Animation Studios, and Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Studio heads, filmmakers, and cast members will come together onstage with the inside scoop on some of these studios’ most exciting upcoming titles, including Pixar’s “Elemental.”
Saturday, September 10
The morning presentation will be all about Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm, with filmmakers, celebrity talent, and surprise guests taking the stage to announce these studios’ highly anticipated upcoming films, specials, and series.
Expect to see behind-the-scenes exclusive footage and first looks at both theatrical and Disney+ titles, including “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and a rumored first trailer for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.”
The afternoon will be all about Disney Branded Television, which will offer talent appearances and never-before-seen sneak previews of original content for Disney+, Disney Channel, and Disney Junior.
Sunday, September 11
Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro will take the stage in the morning to talk about the theme parks, Disney Cruise Line, and more.
Last year’s D23 presentation by D’Amaro brought news of the “Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind” attraction, went behind the scenes on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser resort, and showed us “Project EXO,” among other highlights.
To end D23 Expo 2022, attendees will be treated to a Sunday afternoon performance of “Disney Princess – The Concert,” featuring favorite Disney Princess songs, including classics such as “Part of Your World,” “Let It Go,” “A Whole New World,” “Colors of the Wind,” and “Almost There.”
The performers – Tony® nominee Susan Egan (Broadway’s original Belle in Beauty and the Beast, Meg in Disney’s animated feature Hercules), Broadway.com® Audience Award nominee Isabelle McCalla (Princess Jasmine in Aladdin, The Prom), Disney Channel star Anneliese van der Pol (That’s So Raven, Raven’s Home, Broadway’s final Belle in Beauty and the Beast), and Broadway World Award winner Syndee Winters (Broadway’s Nala in The Lion King, Hamilton) – will also share exclusive, hilarious, and heartfelt behind-the-scenes stories from their time on the stage and screen.
Over the three days, D23 Expo 2022 will feature more than 50 shows, presentations, and panels, plus the Mousequerade costume contest, an exhibit called “Mickey Mouse One: Walt’s Plane” presented by Amazon, and exclusive merchandise from a variety of vendors.
All this and Disney+ Day 2022 is scheduled for September 8, the day before the D23 Expo starts, so you know the news is going to flying out of the company during that extended weekend.
