For those who were concerned about Disney/Marvel skipping San Diego Comic-Con this month, Disney has pretty much given an answer as to why with the upcoming D23 Expo. If you're unaware, D23 is essentially a Disney comic-con.

A live-action presentation titled "Worlds, Galaxies, and Universes: Live Action at the Walt Disney Studios" teased that Disney will present panels and most likely footage for Captain America: Civil War, Alice Through the Looking Glass, The Jungle Book, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios will also hold panels for The Good Dinosaur, Finding Dory, Zootopia, and Moana.

Key events to be held include:

Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios: The Upcoming Films, hosted by John Lasseter

Frozen FANdemoneum: A Musical Celebration!

Welcome to Zootopia!

In Conversation with the Filmmakers and the Emotions Behind Inside Out

Pixar Secrets Revealed!

Toy Story: 20 Years Later, the Original Crew Looks Back

The Tunes Behind the Toons

The Shorts of Walt Disney Animation Studios

As far as the actual expo floor goes, we can expect to see exhibits for:

Disney Movies Anywhere Tweet Suite

An Animator's Gallery with Eric Goldberg

Frozen Album Signing with Robert Lopez, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and Tom MacDougall

Walt Disney Studios Exhibition featuring costumes and props from Disney, Marvel and Lucasfilm

Disney's D23 Expo is set for August 14-26 at the Anaheim Convention Center just blocks from Disneyland. There are still some general admission tickets available, if you want to spend over $200 for the full weekend, but I have no doubt anything exciting will hit the internet either during or just after the expo is completed. With 2015 marking the "Diamond" 60th Anniversary of the Disneyland Resort I would imagine something big could be announced in that arena, as well.
