D23 Expo Today

Today is the second day of Disney's big show off session, D23. It's basically 3 days of panels about each of their properties and is full of celebrity appearances. For those of you that may have missed it Disney has acquired both Marvel and Lucasfilm recently and acts as a parent company for both, still allowing them a great deal of independence while rolling in the money both generate.

Yesterday at the panel Disney and Marvel presented some footage from their first animated film, Big Hero 6. Set in Japan, the film centers on 14-year old Hiro and a team of robots he helps design and provide with powers. A quick look at concept footage can be seen embedded above. Looks boss!

Yesterday was also full of future Pixar movie news which you can read by clicking here!!!! I do see that NPH is a voice in an upcoming film entitled The Good Dinosaur so I will be sure to check that out, as if I had a choice with two young kids.

Expect today to be full of BIG news as the live action movie panels take center stage from 1:30 pm-3:30 pm. Kevin Feige will be on hand for Marvel and it has been buuzing around for a month or so that Marvel would hit heavy at D23.  Please check back later for a full write-up but follow my Twitter as I will pass on anything I find out there first!
