Disney schickte uns Mails mit Infos von der D23
Expo 2022




ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 10, 2022) — The Walt Disney Studios
continued to fuel the fire ignited at yesterday’s showcase with a jam-
packed presentation from the teams at Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios and
20th Century Studios this morning at the Anaheim Convention Center as
part of D23 Expo 2022. Thousands of fans were among the first to hear
new announcements, see never-before-seen footage and hear from the
stars of the industry’s biggest streaming and theatrical titles slated
for the coming months and beyond.

Alan Bergman, chairman, The Walt Disney Studios, welcomed a fired-up
crowd to Hall D23. Bergman reflected on the 13-year history of D23
Expo and the evolution of the Studios group. “That [first] year, none
of the iconic studios you’ll hear from today were part of the
company,” he said. “It was just Disney Animation, Disney Live Action
and Pixar. We announced the Marvel acquisition just before our first
Expo in 2009. Then three years later, we added Lucasfilm, and in 2019,
20th Century Studios. I’ve been at Disney for 26 years, so it’s been
incredibly exciting to welcome each of them to our Studio family. And
like Disney and Pixar, each of these studios has a phenomenal legacy
of storytelling.”

Joining Bergman to walk fans through the upcoming slate of films were
studio executives Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm; Kevin
Feige, producer and president of Marvel Studios; and James Cameron,
director of 20th Century Studios’ “Avatar: The Way of Water.” The
showcase included the following highlights.

Bergman introduced Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, who
guided the audience through the incredible lineup ahead. “As you can
see, there is an immense amount of exciting new Star Wars storytelling
to come from Lucasfilm. The quality, creativity, and variety these
teams are bringing to Disney+ is absolutely remarkable, and I can’t
wait for everyone to experience each of them.”

First up, “ANDOR” a 24-episode spy thriller that features one of the
central characters in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” Kennedy welcomed
to the stage stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Kyle Soller, Adria Arjona and
Cassian Andor himself, Diego Luna, as their character posters were
unveiled. A highlight for all was the showing of the final trailer for
the spy thriller filmed over two 12-episode seasons. The era featured
in “Andor”—the five years before the events of “Rogue One”—is filled
with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the
path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero. “Andor” presents
Star Wars from a different perspective, focusing on everyday people
whose lives are affected by the Empire. The decisions they make have
real consequences, and the stakes for them—and the galaxy—couldn’t be
higher. The series also stars Stellan Skarsgĺrd, Forest Whitaker,
Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw and Faye Marsay. Toby Haynes, Susanna White
and Benjamin Caron direct specific episodes, and Kathleen Kennedy,
Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan
executive produce. Tony Gilroy is also the creator and showrunner.
With action, adventure and suspense filmed against a cinematic
landscape, the first three episodes of season 1 premiere exclusively
on Disney+ on September 21. Trailer is available to download and

Kennedy reflected on the world created in 1988 by George Lucas and Ron
Howard that inspired the next step in the magical journey—a new live-
action fantasy-adventure series “WILLOW,” from Lucasfilm and Imagine
Entertainment. Kennedy introduced Warwick Davis (Willow Ufgood), who
shared his excitement to return to Andowyne before being joined by
series stars Joanne Whalley (Sorsha), Ruby Cruz (Kit), Erin Kellyman
(Jade), Ellie Bamber (Dove), Dempsey Bryk (Airk), Amar Chadha-Patel
(Boorman) and Tony Revolori (Graydon). To the delight of surprised
fans, Christian Slater was also welcomed to stage as a member of the
ensemble cast. The excitement continued when a brand-new trailer was
shown. Set in a magical world where brownies, sorcerers, trolls and
other mystical creatures flourish, “Willow” is the story of an
unlikely group of heroes who set off on a dangerous quest, facing
their inner demons and coming together to save their world. An epic
period fantasy told with a modern sensibility and plenty of humor,
heart, energy and vibrancy, “Willow” begins streaming on Disney+ Nov.
30. Trailer and key art are available to download and share.

Executive producer Dave Filoni joined Kennedy on stage for a host of
upcoming titles, streaming on Disney+.

Filoni showed a new image from the upcoming 16-episode second season
of the animated series “STAR WARS: THE BAD BATCH.” Months have passed
since the events on Kamino and the Bad Batch continue their journey
navigating the Empire after the fall of the Republic. They will cross
paths with friends and foes, both new and familiar, as they take on a
variety of thrilling mercenary missions that will take them to
unexpected and dangerous new places. “Star Wars: The Bad Batch”
features the voices of Dee Bradley Baker and Michelle Ang, with
Filoni, Carrie Beck, Athena Portillo, Brad Rau and Jennifer Corbett
serving as executive producers. Rau is also serving as supervising
director with Corbett as head writer. Revealed today: the series will
begin streaming on Disney+ with a two-episode premiere on Jan. 4,
Filoni segued to “STAR WARS: TALES OF THE JEDI,” six brand-new
animated shorts featuring parables built around Jedi from the prequel
era. Journey into the lives of two distinctly different Jedi—Ahsoka
Tano and Count Dooku—each will be put to the test as they make choices
that will define their destinies. To the delight of the audience,
Filoni shared the official trailer for the series and announced that
all six shorts will debut Oct. 26 on Disney+. The series is created by
executive producer Dave Filoni, with Carrie Beck and Athena Portillo
serving as executive producers. Trailer is available to download and
Filoni shared how much the character of Ahsoka means to him—having
crafted her story since her 2008 debut in the animated series “Star
Wars: The Clone Wars” through her live-action debut in “The
Mandalorian.” “AHSOKA” is a new live-action series heading to Disney+
starring Rosario Dawson in the title role. Fellow executive producer
Jon Favreau joined Filoni on stage to talk about the project and
shared first-look images with attendees. Set after the fall of the
Empire, “Ahsoka” follows the former Jedi knight Ahsoka Tano as she
investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. The new series
is slated for 2023 and will be exclusive to Disney+. The executive
producers are Filoni, Favreau, Kennedy, Colin Wilson, Carrie Beck with
Karen Gilchrist as co-executive producer.

Favreau and Filoni were joined by “STAR WARS: SKELETON CREW” creators
Jon Watts and Christopher Ford, who talked about the series, which is
coming soon on Disney+. “Skeleton Crew” tells the story of four kids
who find themselves lost in in the vastness of the galaxy trying to
find their way home. Applause erupted when star Jude Law came out to
greet fans. Favreau, Filoni, Watts, Ford, Kennedy and Michelle Rejwan
executive produce.
Favreau and Filoni were excited to discuss season 3 of “THE
MANDALORIAN,” inviting executive producer Rick Famuyiwa to join them
on stage, as well as stars Pedro Pascal, Katee Sackhoff, Amy Sedaris,
Giancarlo Esposito and Emily Swallow. Together, they shared the season
3 teaser trailer with the audience. In the third season of “The
Mandalorian,” the Mandalorian and Grogu have been reunited and
continue their journey through the lawless galaxy. Season 3 is set to
launch exclusively on Disney+ in 2023. Kennedy and Colin Wilson also
executive produce, with Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck as co-
executive producers. Trailer is available to download and share.

Before Kennedy concluded the Lucasfilm presentation, she had one more
title to share. “I couldn’t leave here without talking about one
other project we’ve been hard at work on at Lucasfilm—Indiana Jones,”
she said as the familiar theme played and the crowd erupted. “I’m
thrilled to welcome to the stage our director, James Mangold. Mangold
wowed the crowd with some new details along with a sizzle reel from
the upcoming fifth installment of the immensely popular “INDIANA
JONES” franchise, which opens in theaters June 30, 2023. Joining
Kennedy and Mangold on stage was the one-and-only Harrison Ford
alongside co-star and Emmy® winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Ford, who was
a little emotional on stage, said, “Thank you for making these films
such an incredible experience for all of us. I’m very proud to say
that this one if fantastic, and [Waller-Bridge] is one of the reasons.

“Indiana Jones movies are about fantasy and mystery, but they’re also
about heart,” continued the actor. “I’m really, really happy that we
have a really human story to tell, as well as a movie that will kick
your ass.”

Greeting fans at D23 Expo 2022, Kevin Feige said he’s been coming to
D23 Expo for years—taking in all the performances the other studios in
the Disney family bring to the stage. “I’ve always been a little
jealous,” Feige admitted. “Why can’t we get our own musical number?”
That kicked off a show-stopping performance of the buzzy fan-favorite
“I Could Do This All Day” from the show-within-a-show “Rogers: The
Musical” in last year’s Disney+ series “Hawkeye.” Bringing it to life
live on stage were 22 performers, a six-piece live rhythm section and
composer and conductor Marc Shaiman, who wrote the song for

Feige returned to the stage, reviewing recent announcements including
the Multiverse Saga—the conclusion of Phase 4, the Phase 5 slate and
the Phase 6 titles that include “Fantastic Four” and two new Avengers
films: “The Kang Dynasty” and “Secret Wars.”

Marvel Studios continues to create exciting and connected MCU
storylines for Disney+, including:

“IRONHEART” executive producer Ryan Coogler offered fans an early look
at the new series that takes place after the events of “Black
Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Dominique Thorne returns as Riri Williams,
a young, genius inventor determined to make her mark on the world.
Her unique take on building iron suits is both brilliant and flawed,
and “Ironheart” delves into the dynamics of tech versus magic. Feige
invited Anthony Ramos to the stage to greet fans and share a little
about his character, Parker Robbins aka The Hood. The new series is
slated for Disney+ next year.

Streaming on Disney+ beginning Oct. 7 is Marvel Studios’ first-ever
