D23 Expo: Major Schedule Updates Include ‘Frozen’ Panel, Brad Bird Signing

Late last night, the D23 Expo schedule received a major overhaul with appearances, signings, panels and other events as well as more specific start — and more importantly — end times. While each attendee should carefully pour over the additions, here are just a few of the highlights we spotted:

  • Disney Animation (Friday, Arena, 10 am) – allotted a whopping 2 1/2 hours. The Studios presentation (Saturday, Arena, 10:30 am) is given 2 hours.
  • Pixar’s Angus MacLane Buzz Lightyear Small Fry action figures signing (Friday, Disney Living, 4:30 pm)
  • Marty Sklar signing (Friday, Talent Round-Up, 4:15 pm)
