D23 Expo to Reveal Upcoming Lucasfilm Projects

Coming this August at Disney’s D23 Expo will be the “first look” at the future of Star Wars. According to an official press release by Disney, it says:

BURBANK, Calif., June 6, 2019 – D23: The Official Disney Fan Club has announced the lineup of the most highly anticipated presentations at D23 Expo 2019, August 23–25. The Disney Legends Awards Ceremony, hosted by Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger, will kick off the Expo on Friday morning, August 23. Later that same day, Disney+ will showcase its exciting slate of original films and series coming to the streaming service, set to launch in the U.S. on November 12. On Saturday morning, The Walt Disney Studios will give fans a sneak peek at their collection of world-class film labels, including Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm. And on Sunday morning, fans will get a preview of what’s in store at Disney Parks during a presentation hosted by Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek.

Following this press release, Disney confirmed when the Mandalorian footage would be shown:

“On Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m., the highly anticipated streaming service  Disney+ will give guests a first look at some of its original content including Lady and the Tramp, The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and many more during this star-studded presentation.

What’s even more interesting is that Disney goes on to say that they will be showcasing live-action projects and films of all of their top brands/franchises:

The Walt Disney Studios will present a behind-the-scenes look at its blockbuster collection of upcoming films on Saturday, August 24, at 10 a.m. Fans will see what’s on the drawing board for the acclaimed filmmakers at Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios and get a peek at the exciting slate of live-action projects, from Disney to Marvel Studios to Star Wars. As always, attendees will be treated to exclusive footage, special guest appearances, and more!

Does this mean we might get more footage of The Rise of Skywalker or other hidden projects? Heck, I’m all in! No matter how it all pans out, I’ll be satisfied with seeing the first real look of the Mandalorian in all of its glory. What are you looking forward to?
