We’re just about two months away from this year’s Disney D23 Expo and the news and updates are starting to roll in, with two major announcements being made this evening on the Expo’s ‘Things to Know‘ page.
During its presentation earlier today at E3, Square Enix and Disney Interactive announced the first announcement for the upcoming title ‘Kingdom Hearts III,’ the new world of Tangled, which was developed in direct partnership with Walt Disney Animation Studios. To celebrate the announcement, new screens plus a gameplay trailer was released. Fans of the highly-anticipated title will see Sora and his trusted friends, Donald Duck and Goofy, adventure through the world based on the hit animated feature film, Tangled. The trailer also gives new hints to the storyline and showcases gorgeous visuals, and new gameplay elements.
Earlier today, Disney D23 made announcements on behalf of Walt Disney Animation Studios for their panels and presentations at the upcoming D23 Expo. Included with the release were several images for upcoming projects, including one for Moana (November 23, 2016). What we unfortunately didn’t realize at first was that the accompanying artwork — while similar to the original concept art released for the film — has been updated with much finer detail with the lead characters, who have been repositioned on the boat. In addition, the artwork displayed on the sails has also been updated. An image showing comparisons between the two is included below.
Walt Disney Animation Studios today announced its most exciting presence at D23 EXPO yet. The event, presented by D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, will take place August 14–16 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
