Best of D23 Expo 2015: Part One

D23 Expo

 

Disney celebrated their D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim, CA this past weekend, a convention filled with entertainment, announcements, music, merchandise and famous faces. Also known as the “Ultimate Disney Fan Event,” this is a platform that merges both fandom and industry related news, from their theme parks to the studios, covering both live action and animation. The scale of this event was impressive: All three floors of the Anaheim Convention Center featured non-stop activities, events and multiple stages with live presentations and concerts, plus a massive main showroom with everything from movie themed booths (including Through the Looking Glass and Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to pop-up stores with merchandise sold exclusively at the event. Here are some highlights and images from the first day, including the Disney Legends Awards ceremony which opened the event.

In 1997 I was lucky enough to get an scholarship to study Arts, Cinema, and took a long course on American Screenplay (which messed up my movie watching since I can predict endings way easier now).
