INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Disney will host a convention of sorts in Anaheim this September called the D23 Expo– a “four-day event that brings the entire world of Disney under one roof,” according to a press release. That “entire world” will include BOOM! Studios, publishers of The Incredibles, The Muppet Show and several other licensed Disney/Pixar titles.
Per BOOM!’s Chip Mosher, the comics publisher will be on hand with “a line of show exclusives” they’ll be revealing in the near future.
D23 is the name of Disney’s fan community, which gives Disney fans access to the company through a website, a quarterly magazine and the D23 Expo. The event will also include previews of several upcoming Disney films, such as The Princess and the Frog, Rapunzel, Disney’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. They also promise previews of ABC’s fall season, an exhibition of props from past Disney movies and the chance to meet stars from the Disney Channel.
So maybe you’ll have the chance to meet Mark Waid and Hannah Montana all in the same weekend. Stranger things have happened.
