Best Of D23: Eight Announcements That Had Us Jumping With Excitement
The D23 expo took place this week and we couldn’t be more excited about the projects announced at the event. Ever since Disney got a hold of Marvel, fans couldn’t help themselves from having nerdgasms by just anticipating all the great content these two production houses were going to create and put out. Not just for the cinema halls, but also for the TV screens. Disney’s new, upcoming streaming service is set to come into the world and it brings a whole lot of Marvel-Disney originals along with it.
Everything from the new Pixar movies to brand-new Marvel superhero shows, here are five projects from D23 we’re most excited about:
Less than a month back, The Russo Brothers shared their interest in seeing Keanu Reeves play Moon Knight on screen. But there was no sign of Moon Knight in Disney’s Phase 4 lineup, which naturally left fans disappointed. But the announcement of the Disney+ exclusive helped win back the excitement of the fans.
Additions At Disney Parks
Apart from TV shows and movies, Disney also announced its brand-new additions in its theme parks. There’s going to be a new immersive experience hotel called the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruise, an Avengers-themed ride, a Frozen theme park, a Mary Poppins experience and a Cirque du Soleil show will be added.
Dalmatians 101 is a classic. And apart from the cute spotted dogs in it, Cruella is the next best thing about the film. Disney announced earlier this year that they would be roping in Emma Stone to play the role of Cruella in the new standalone film, but this was the first time the production house revealed how she’d look.
Disney Plus Exclusives
This might be the best part. Even though Disney shared that they will be focussing on quality over quantity, they still shared a long list of Disney+ shows that will be releasing soon. Here are some we can’t wait to start watching.
