D23 Expo Preview: Marvel, Star Wars, Disney+ Day

D23 Expo, the popular all-things Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and more convention run by Disney 23 fan group, returns September 9-11 to the Anaheim Convention Center.

The last D23 Expo convention was held in August 2019. Fans oohed and ahhhed with the announcements of many things that have since happened, including: several movies and TV shows, Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure; the Halcyon Starcruiser ‘Star Wars Hotel’ immersive experience at Disney World, the Disney Wish cruise ship, and dozens of Star Wars (Mandalorian), Marvel (WandaVision, She-Hulk), and other shows on this new service Disney+ that launched three months later in November 2019. See our 2019 article.


Disney+ Day. This week’s action begins on Disney+ Day on Sept 8, where new movies and show will be released on Disney+, including Thor: Love and Thunder. Disneyland theme parks will also feature Disney+ activations to celebrate. Disney+ was heavily promoted at the last D23 Expo, with a deep discount for new subscribers.
