Star Wars D23: Everything You Want to See (Live Updates)

It’s finally here! Disney’s D23 Expo has finally arrived and they are ready to showcase some of their biggest names and projects- including Star Wars! Not only will Star Wars play a huge role in this year’s expo, but I feel that Star Wars will probably be the main star of the show.

Unfortunately, Disney has opted out of live streaming any of the Star Wars panels this weekend but whether it’s trailers or BTS reels, they are expected to be released online shortly thereafter.

On the the bright side, this article will be updated immediately once their are breaking news, announcements, or leaks about everything Star Wars at D23. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get easy access to this article so you’ll be one of the first to know!

Besides the expensive pricing, which is expected to be:

“…for a 2-night/3-day stay starts at $3,300 for one person, or just over $1,000 per person, per day. Cabins do sleep up to five passengers, so there’s also the option of maxing out the cabin occupancy for a relatively cheaper price per person. A cabin with five passengers would cost $7,200, or roughly $1,440 per person, for a more feasible $480 per person, per day price range.”
