D23 Is Happening This August

Mark your calendars for August!

The Ultimate Disney Fan Event is happening in Anaheim on August 9th to 11th, promising an unforgettable experience as always. Disney has shared the main highlight of the event, which is the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony, where they will be honoring cast members like Martha Blanding, a 50-year Disneyland worker, and Imagineer member Joe Rohde. This ceremony will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest on August 11 and celebrates individuals who have left a mark on Disney’s history.

You can expect three days packed with Disney showcases, exclusive previews, performances, and surprises. For the first time, the stunning Honda Center will host spectacular displays, including the Disney Legends Awards Ceremony.

Martha Blanding leaves a legacy as one of the first Black women celebrated in Disney's history, while Joe's creative contributions to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and other iconic projects are recognized. They join a prestigious lineup of honorees, including Angela Bassett, James Cameron, Miley Cyrus (yes, Hannah Montana), and more! 

As for me, I'm excited to see John Williams being honored. He is the greatest movie composer of all time, responsible for the soundtracks of amazing movies like Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Super Man, E.T., Jaws, and more. What. A. Legacy.

Additionally, on August 10, Josh D’Amaro will lead the Disney Experience Showcase, offering a sneak peek into upcoming projects. The event will feature the largest show floor in D23 history, with pavilions from Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney+, Marvel Studios, and more. They also have an exclusive shopping experience available, including merchandise from The Walt Disney Company Store.

Could this be the event where they will finally unveil Ryan Johnson's Star Wars trilogy? There were rumors that it was canceled, but Ryan Johnson has said recently that the trilogy is still alive. How about a new series set in the Old Republic, Disney, maybe even based on the Knights of the Old Republic video game?

There are also rumors that gaming will have a major presence here. Maybe we will see Amy Hennig's new game? She is the person responsible for the first few Uncharted games, so it would be cool to see what she comes up with. Oh yeah, I bet we will also see more details surrounding the deal made between Disney and Epic Games. We will see Disney's Fortnite in the works.
