Star Wars at D23 Expo!
For the first time at the D23 Expo, Star Wars fans can have access to experiences created for them by Lucasfilm and Disney. Darth Vader: The Evolution of a Villain, located in the DCP pavilion, showcases the development of the iconic villain from early concepts to striking realization. Crash Course in the Force: Star Wars Saga 101, presented by Lucasfilm’s resident authority Pablo Hidalgo in Stage 23, will give Star Wars newbies and experts alike a thorough grounding in all matters of the Force and the Star Wars legacy.
D23 is the Disney version fan event expo showcasing all the Disney products. They had a big reveal for Star Wars – possibly elements of Star Wars Episode VII could be stated. On the internet from its link, it actually appears that the Expo is Disney’s first time testing their Star Wars “sea legs”.
Of course, they will have already done so at SDCC and Star Wars Celebration Europe 2. But publicly, on their home turf is the D23.
Lucasfilm is use to this fanfare. Not sure if Disney has seen this fanfare fully? They can handle it, but can they respect it?
LOTS OF FAMILY FRIENDLY COMMENTS – don’t know how that bodes for the “Slave Leias” cosplayers…
Anyhow, we shall see. So far. I won’t drop $500 to get there without a meeting or interview.
