ALL THE FRIENDS – The dust settled at Disney's D23 Expo and we all know about big announcements like the new trailer for "Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker" and an extended view the live-action remake of "Mulan."
But besides these huge ticket items, there are a few things you might have missed from the D23 Expo – and I'm here to let you know about them.
The latest run of the biannual event has been billed as the "largest Disney fan event in the world," this past weekend in Anaheim, California.
Here are 10 things you might not know from the D23 Expo:
"Black Panther" made a killing at last year's box office and became one of Marvel's hottest features. We knew a future would happen, but we didn't know when ̵
D23 has announced that "Black Panther II" will hit theaters on May 6, 2022.
Hulk has been a staple in the Marvel Cinematic Universe almost since the get-go, but he's about to get several companies. There are several announcements being made around Disney's new streaming service, Disney +, and one of them is the new series "She-Hulk."
We don't know much about the series, but it should be fun to watch it develop.
The "Star Wars" prequels had their issues, and many people shared their opinions with them, but one thing that seemed universal was that Ewan McGregor was a good Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Now, thanks to Disney +, we'll see more of him.
The unnamed Obi-Wan series will reportedly star in McGregor and will take place at the same time at the "Star Wars" university as "Solo: A Star Wars Story."
We've covered the new "Rise of Skywalker" talent for you, but there's also a new poster released on D23 – and it features a familiar face.
I'm not sure what all that means, but Emperor Palpatine's face is notorious for the new poster for "Episode IX," as he seems to be guarding both Kylo Ren (Ad am Driver) and Rey ( Daisy Ridley) as they fight it along with the headlights.
Let the assumptions and theories of conspiracy begin.
Cruella de Vil gets her own live-action remake, and Academy Award-winning actress Emma The rock is cast as the titular villain.
The casting of the stone was announced some time ago, but the first picture of him as the iconic Disney baddie was revealed on D23. It was a different take, but I wanted to see what he had.
The live-action remake of "Lady and the Tramp" already has a trailer. It was also announced that the movie will be available to stream November 12 on Disney +.
I have a feeling people are starting to want to start subscribing to Disney.
Epcot at Disney World gets its own charm based on "Mary Poppins Returns."
We don't have a lot of information, and we don't know when it will debut or whether it's a ride or a hike, but we knew it was coming.
The juggernaut known as The "Frozen" gets a Disney roller coaster.
While this is exciting, there is a bit of a hiccup: You can only ride it if you visit Disneyland Hong Kong.
Marvel is getting an entire section of the park at Disney California Adventure Park, and it has been announced that phase two of that area will include a ride on a Quinjet. You will be able to fly alongside the Avengers while saving the world again.
No official date for the ride has been announced.
Star Wars: The Edge of the Galaxy has been a major attraction for Disneyland to this day, and they are not done yet. A new magnet called Rise of the Resistance is heading to the park, and new footage is released on D23 in the form of a commercial .
According to the official description of the ride here "blur the lines between fantasy and reality and put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to accompany Rey and General Organa to a secret base.In the meantime, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some Resistance heroes, they separate and must escape Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren. ”
