Disney Legends and Movie Stars: Everyone Comes to D23 Expo.

My report on the next couple of days I spent at D23 Expo 2015 is up now on http://AllEars.Net.

The first full day, I saw the Disney Legends Ceremony, tried to catch the big Animation panel, and heard about 60  years worth of Imagineering:

The second day, I checked out next year’s slate of Disney live-action films, heard about the upcoming projects for Disney Parks and Resorts around the world, heard from “Once Upon A Time’s” Snow White and Evil Queen, and much more:

D23 Expo 2015, Everybody!

So this last weekend, I attended the biannual Walt Disney Company convention “D23 Expo 2015” for http://AllEars.Net.  It was tons of fun!  Also exhausting!  Tons of exhausting!

The first day, I was able to attend the preview of “Walt Disney Archives Presents—Disneyland: The Exhibit,” and wrote it up here, over at AllEars.Net

This seems pretty cool–you can get wood frames made for your glasses that are printed up with the comic art of your choice.

Morrigan and Sera!  “‘Tis a pity…”

Posts A’Plenty!

So a short hiatus of posting here occurred, but not for nothing!  Posts went flying elsewhere.

First, Halloween happened:

I was not ready.

Were you ready?  I went to ScareLA and blogged about it, but was sadly caught flat-footed as I am with virtually every holiday.

Next up, Marvel decided to hold a brief event down at the El Capitan, in which they outlined their plans for World Domination by means of cinematic release.  Personally, I welcome our new Feige Overlord.

Say "Feige" loud, it's like music playing.

Then, Disney released “Big Hero 6!”  I have been anticipating this picture since I first saw some of the concept art during their press events for “Frozen,” so this was pretty exciting.  I went to the press conference and subsequently reviewed it.  TL;DR:  I liked it!  Baymax is the cutest.

As if that weren’t enough, I then grabbed my handy Baymax backpack, and headed to Japan, where I toured around the Tokyo Disney Resort and Universal Studios Japan…

…Where I’ve been until earlier today.  But back now!  Jetlagged!  Off to sleep for a week!
