Star Wars and Marvel fans have been speculating for a few weeks as to what Disney will unveil at next month’s D23 Expo 2015, and today they’ve confirmed The Force Awakens and Civil War for starters.
Both Lucasfilm and Marvel will be taking part in the “Worlds, Galaxies, and Universes: Live Action at The Walt Disney Studios” panel on Saturday, August 15, at 10:30am. Here’s how Disney describes that panel:
Worlds, Galaxies, and Universes: Live Action at The Walt Disney Studios
Saturday, August 15, 10:30 a.m.â€”Hall D23
Disney, Marvel and Lucasfilm are home to some of the planetâ€™s best storytellers, immersing audiences fully in the world of each film from beginning to end and beyond. In this exclusive Hall D23 presentation, join Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn for a tour of upcoming live-action projects from these legendary film studios. A bevy of special guests will be on hand to offer a look at an unparalleled slate that includes Alice Through the Looking Glass, The Jungle Book, Marvelâ€™s Captain America: Civil War, Star Wars: The Force Awakensâ€”and much, much more.
Hall D23 is the Expo’s stage with seating for 7,500 people, which is bigger than Comic Con’s infamous Hall H. While the panel isn’t live streamed, and all electronic devices are banned from the hall, we’ll be there and will report what is shown as soon as we’re back on the grid.
