D23 Expo 2015 has been a blast, and a greater treat for all the Disney fanatics. We all grew up watching these amazing Disney movies, and let’s be real, we all still watch them, and sing along, and cry. The D23 Expo 2015 saw many Disney centric events, and clues of their future projects. Walt Disney Animation and Pixar revealed information about their new movies. It seems like Pixar are very clear of where they want to be headed. Instead of focusing on completely new scripts, they are sticking to their pasts and planning sequels to their already hit animated movies.

D23 Expo 2015 displayed the brand new posters for The Incredibles 2, Cars 3, and Toy Story 4. Will McCormack and Rashida Jones, screenwriters for Toy Story 4, composer Randy Newman, and the director John Lasseter were all present at the event especially to celebrate the 20 years anniversary of the original Toy Story. News about Finding Dory, the 2016 sequel to the original 2003 movie was also revealed by Andrew Stanton as he discussed the similarity between the two films.

The event was house to about 7000+ fans, where Pixar may have made their intentions of focusing on the past very clear, but Disney, on the other hand, is moving forward in every way. They plan on working on completely fresh scripts which are not related to any already-existing movies. Disney showed their concept art for their new movie Gigantic, which will come out on 2018. The movie is going to be a musical retelling the story of the Jack and the Beanstalk. Even though the concept is same, it can be expected that there will be some changes in the story.

“We are taking the rough outline and doing whatever the heck we want with it,” said Lasseter. Also check: Beetlejuice 2 Confirmed

It won’t be the first time that the studio takes familiar folk tales and turns it into hit movies. Frozen, Tangled, The Little Mermaid, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are some examples of it.

D23 Expo 2015 also debuted the first looks for their next two movies, Zootopia, which is will be released in March 2016, and Moana, in November 2016. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is confirmed to play a prominent character in the latter film.

And just like everybody else, I enjoy a good cup of coffee and the pleasure of listening to good music.
