It’s been too long since there’s been a special Disney D23 Expo update and we have too much to share with you, so there’s a good chance stuff will be forgotten here and for that, we apologize. That said, here are a bunch of mouse-cellaneous updates you will be sure to appreciate knowing when visiting the Disney D23 Expo next weekend, August 19-21.
When the Disney D23 Expo comes to the Anaheim Convention Center from August 19-21, it will include a substantial presence by Disney Store, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2012 and it’s inviting all the D23 Expo attendees to join in the celebration a bit early with the opportunity to purchase items exclusively available at the Expo.
Below is a gallery of item as well as pricing and edition sizes (usually some multiple of 25) which is sure to offer something for everyone, as long as they love the color silver, and don’t mind shelling out a few bucks (anywhere from $19.95 – $2,000.00).
Disney Publishing Worldwide (DPW) invites families and fans to experience The Wonderful Words of Disney. Guests have the opportunity to attend exclusive sessions with renowned children’s authors, listen to timeless stories read live, and explore the ultimate Disney fan’s dream library at the ultimate Disney fan event, D23 Expo, taking place at Anaheim Convention Center from August 19–21, 2011.
The film stars Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton as a childless couple who want nothing more than to be able to star their own family, but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim — and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
Exclusively at Disney’s D23 Expo August 19-21 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Disney film fans will go behind the scenes to explore the exciting roster of projects on the horizon at The Walt Disney Studios, with a variety of panel discussions, sneak peeks, and exhibits.
On Saturday, August 20, Rich Ross, chairman, The Walt Disney Studios; Sean Bailey, president, Production, The Walt Disney Studios; John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios; and Kevin Feige, producer and president, Marvel Studios, will present a not-to-be-missed look at The Walt Disney Studios’ upcoming film slate, which includes Disney’s The Muppets, John Carter , Disney-Pixar’s Brave, Marvel’s The Avengers, Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, Oz: The Great and Powerful, and more.
The spotlight will shine on Disney Store’s spectacular product lines at the D23 Expo, held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Calif. from August 19-21. Disney Store will treat fans to a sneak peek of its fall and holiday 2011 products, as well as offer them a chance to meet and hear from the artists and designers who created them.
It’s about that time. Not just time for Disney D23 Expo, but for Disney Parks to unveil what its 2012 campaign will be, which traditionally takes place mid-September. This year, however, the notice may come earlier as the spotlight is trained on both Disney Parks and Disney Corporate Responsibility, both of which may play a part in revealing that the new promotion for next year may just be may be a redo of 2010.
As a follow-up to last year’s successful Dance Star Mickey, the roadies over at Fisher-Price are working hard to bring Rock Star Mickey to the open road this holiday season for an action-packed, music-filled tour with a stop in your very own home (* purchase required).
We first encountered the rock legend that is Rock Star Mickey at the 2011 New York International Toy Fair where he stole the stage with his rendition of two songs, a rock star tutorial, and — of course — the mouska-split where he performs a full-on split while playing the guitar with his nose. That’s talent, folks.
Inspired by series two of the popular POP! Vinyl collection by Funko for Disney Store, Disney Consumer Products is bringing two exclusives to the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California to the Disney Living Pavilion.
Pictured to the left is a 3″ flocked version of Lotso which will sell for $15 and is limited to an edition size of 480 pieces. He will be joined by a 9″ metallic Steamboat Willie, according to The Fire Wire, which will retail for $50 and limited to an edition size of 360 pieces.
Oh dear. With just two weeks or so left to go, the information on the 2011 Disney D23 Expo is pouring in so fast, I’m afraid that come the weekend, the update would be a novel, so I’m forced to make a mid-week update post to keep you informed on all the latest and greatest news emerging on the Disney D23 Expo that you’ll be hard-pressed to find most anywhere else. Heck, I’m not even sure where to begin.
