Disney has announced the schedule for its main presentations at the upcoming D23 EXPO 2015. The convention is essentially Disney’s version of Comic-Con, and in years past has offered looks at films like The Avengers as Disney has acquired more and more high-profile properties under its banner. This year looks to be no different, as the official D23 2015 schedule touts sneak peeks at “films from Marvel and Lucasfilm” aka Captain America: Civil War and Star Wars.
We’ve been hearing recently that Marvel plans on skipping a Hall H presentation Comic-Con this year, just as they did in 2011 when they instead unveiled a look at The Avengers at D23 and New York Comic-Con. That looks likely to be the case this year, so fans attending D23 2015 can expect to get a preview of some upcoming Marvel films that SDCC fans will miss out on.
As for confirmed movies, though, the D23 2015 schedule reveals that Friday’s Hall 23 session will include appearances by filmmakers from Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios with a preview of footage from films like Disney’s Zootopia and Pixar’s Finding Dory, which marks the Pixar return of director Andrew Stanton and will be released on June 17, 2016. On Saturday, live-action titles like the sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass (opening May 27, 2016) and Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book (set for release on April 15 2016) will take center stage, alongside the Marvel and Lucasfilm titles.
D23 EXPO 2015 will take place August 14-16 in Anaheim. For more information on the event, visit the official site.
