D23 Expo 2017 – the ultimate Disney Fan Experience taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center, Friday 14th to Sunday 16th July – already has quite the draw, with some massive presentations planned for the Main Stage and a few smaller panels for enthusiasts of Disney’s Freeform TV shows. However, that isn’t the only features that will tempt fans out of the California heat and into an enclosed convention hall – the lineup now includes Q&A panels from their Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior shows, too.
Cast and creative teams from shows such as STUCK IN THE MIDDLE, BIZAARDVARK, K.C. UNDERCOVER, WALK THE PLANK and MECH-X-4 are going to be on hand to answer any and all burning questions from fans of the shows. But it’s not just the already-released series that will be represented at D23 Expo.
SCROOGE MCDUCK’S MONEY BIN will be bringing its super huge Money Bin to the Exhibition Floor – ideal to to throw the kids in and leave them diving around for an hour or two! – as well as hosting a Q&A panel (no DAVID TENNANT, I’m sad to say), and voice casts and production members from TANGLED: THE SERIES (with Zachary Levi, ahead of his SDCC obligations) and sequel THE DESCENDENTS 2 are booked to come along to say hi, smile and wave. And answer a few questions, too, of course!
Here’s the additions to the timetable, direct from the D23 Expo updates site:
- All weekend long, you can take a dive in SCROOGE MCDUCK’S MONEY BIN on the Expo show floor. While you’re there, visit McStuffins Toy Hospital, where younglings can give toy babies a checkup and play with the brand-new Doc McStuffins Baby app, set to launch this summer.
