'Star Wars,' 'Spider-Man' Highlight Disney's D23 Expo Plans

If you look through yesterday's Comic-Con breakdown, you'll notice that one prominent studio is missing. Aside from its Marvel Studios arm, Disney is sitting Comic-Con out this year.

A few weeks after the Con wraps up, Disney will be hosting its biannual D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA where the Disney reps will announce the latest developments for their theme parks, TV shows and films.

This morning, Disney revealed some of its plans for the event, which include Spider-Man and Star Wars events and a look at the studio's upcoming animated feature Frozen.

Here's just some of what Disney has in the works:

The Mystical World of Walt Disney Animation Studios' Frozen: This panel will feature animation-art concepts, storyboards and previously unreleased film clips from the film. Frozen is due in theaters on November 27.

Spider-Man's Ultimate Innovation: No word on if this panel will include footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (we're thinking not since it's a Sony property) but Disney will showcase "cutting-edge product innovation and designs featuring one of the most popular superheroes in the world."

Star Wars at D23 Expo: Disney brings its $4 billion LucasFilm acquisition to D23 with panels such as "Darth Vader: The Evolution of a Villain," "Crash Course in The Force: Star Wars Saga 101" and much more.

Other highlights include a Little Mermaid karaoke experience, Tinker Bell art gallery, a chance to create your own Muppet, a behind-the-scenes look at the world of Cars and Planes and, of course, an exclusive tour through the history of The Avengers, which includes a chance to see the latest Avengers products.

Tickets for the event may be purchased on the D23 Expo site. D23 will take place August 9-11. Here are the schedules for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
