Has San Diego Comic Con found a new rival from the house of mouse? Disney has announced that D23 will be held July 14-16 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Now Comic-Con has yet to announce their official dates for 2017 but, it is typically held in mid to late July.
D23 is the biennial Disney fan event/convention that combines theme park, music, gaming, television and movie properties — including “Star Wars,” Pixar and Marvel — under one roof. For those of you unfamiliar with D23 Expo here is a brief synopsis:
Since 2009, the bi-annual D23 EXPO has celebrated all the magic, wonder, and adventure of Disney at this remarkable gathering created especially for you, our most passionate and loyal fans. D23 Expo presents three full days of “inside-the-magic” experiences you won’t find anywhere else, including exclusive sneak peeks at upcoming films from The Walt Disney Studios, dazzling celebrity appearances, unforgettable presentations given by Disney luminaries, a look at what’s coming from Disney Parks and Resorts and Walt Disney Imagineering, the Disney Legends ceremony, and the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibition, which spotlights crown jewels from Disney’s timeless legacy.
Now it is only every other year, but how do you think this will affect San Diego Comic Con in 2017? We would love to know your thoughts in the comment section below.
