Remember when Disney was taking over the world? I sure do. This year’s San Diego Comic-Con was packed with the usual suspects ranging from toys, to TV, to films, etc. but some franchises held back. Which franchises? Well, the one’s owned by Disney. Why? The upcoming D23 Expo.
ComicBook.com reported that D23 will bring Disney’s trio of streaming services: Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu (see what I mean about taking over?) through pavilions, demos, and newly shown content. Now if you go to the D23 Expo you will obviously get to see the first look at Disney+ before it is available on November 12. So between new content and original-series footage from all of the aforementioned streaming sites, fans in attendance in Anaheim, California have a lot to look forward to.
The site also provided Disney’s tentative schedule, which can be seen below:
