Press/Media Coverage Disclosure Amazon Affiliate Disclosure

 

The D23Expo 2017 took place in Anaheim, CA a couple weekends ago and I’m still a bit salty about the fact that I missed it once again this year. If you’re like me and among what seems like the only group of folks who missed this 3 days of Disney Magic this post is for you – and me! Thanks to the power and privilege of Disney Press Releases I have a chance to share what we missed!

I first discovered the power of the D23Expo when I stumbled across the hashtag last year and stalking it over the entire 3 day event. This year was a bit more of the same and it did not fail to have me green with envy for everyone who was there in person – did I mention I didn’t go? Okay. Just making sure.

In addition to being dusted with all the Disney Magic floating all around a D23Expo there were also a few pretty cool announcement made about what’s to come for Disney, Pixar and Disney Toon Studios throughout the rest of this year and into 2018.

Upcoming Films

This movie reminds me a lot of Disney’s 2014 Release The Book of Life which my entire family loved and I’m sure we will come to love Coco just as much!

Filmmakers revealed a new character, Yesss, an algorithm who plays an important role in Ralph and Vanellope’s journey within the internet. Golden Globe®-winning actress Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”) lends her voice to the character. “Yesss is a new character who owns the website Buzzaholic,” said Henson. “Yesss knows about everything cool and on trend.
