Now that we've got Celebration Anaheim and San Diego Comic Con out of the way, the next big convention we have to look forward to is D23, Disney's biennial convention in Anaheim, California. Today, in a press release, Disney confirmed that The Force Awakens, along with Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, will be part of the presentation happening on August 15th at a panel titled "Worlds, Galaxies, and Universes: Live Action at The Walt Disney Studios." You can read the full description of the event below:
"Disney, Marvel and Lucasfilm are home to some of the planet’s best storytellers, immersing audiences fully in the world of each film from beginning to end and beyond. In this exclusive Hall D23 presentation, join Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn for a tour of upcoming live-action projects from these legendary film studios. A bevy of special guests will be on hand to offer a look at an unparalleled slate that includes Alice Through the Looking Glass, The Jungle Book, Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, Star Wars: The Force Awakens—and much, much more."
The panel will take place in Hall D23 at 10:30am on Saturday of the convention. It's anyone's guess what could be revealed here. Back at San Diego Comic Con director J.J. Abrams confirmed that the next trailer for Episode VII would be coming in the fall. Without a trailer, perhaps we could see more behind the scenes content like we saw at SDCC. Also, the "more" could include some talk about Christopher Miller and Phil Lord's Han Solo Anthology film, or even Episode VIII. We shall watch this convention with great interest!
