Every two years at the D23 Expo, Disney honors new Disney Legends and this year two from Star Wars become Legends.
In addition to Stan Lee, this year’s Disney Legends include Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. The Disney Legends is basically Disney’s Hall of Fame and the actual “hall” is located at the studio in Burbank right outside the main office building.
â€œThe Disney Legends Award is the highest honor our company can bestow on an individual, reserved for those few who have truly made an indelible mark on the history of The Walt Disney Company,â€ said Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger. â€œItâ€™s a celebration of talent, a recognition of achievement, and an expression of gratitude to the men and women whose work has significantly contributed to Disneyâ€™s enduring reputation for creative excellence.â€
A total of nine people will be honored as official Disney Legends during the D23 Expo this coming July.
