At the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Disney Animation took to the stage in Hall D23 (introduced by Alan Horn, pictured above) to give audiences some new insight into what's coming down the pipeline from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar and DisneyToon Studios. I was in attendance for the presentation (I was tweeting live from the floor) and got a first-hand look at some incredible things that were shown for the very first time - some of which can be shared with you now, while others you'll have to wait to see. What's certain is that there's a stellar lineup ahead, including some much-requested new chapters of fan-favorite franchises, along with some completely unexpected new films. Here's the details...

Good morning from sunny Anaheim, California! I hit the ground here yesterday, refreshed and now ready to rock the first day of the 2017 D23 Expo and Disneyland Summer of Heroes! Be sure to be following my on the socials - particularly on Twitter - for real-time updates from the show floor and panels as news breaks from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Parks and more. There's a lot to come from "The Ultimate Disney Fan Event," and I'll be here for all of it, with news and features rolling out here on the site in the days and weeks ahead (some things I just can't reveal yet). There's also plenty of toys to be seen, so stay tuned for a look at new offerings from Mattel, JAKKS Pacific, Jada Toys, Disney Store and more.
I've been talking about it for months, and now Disney•Pixar's Cars 3 has officially come racing into theaters! The latest chapter in the Cars saga finds an aging Lightning McQueen faced with a turning point in his life and career as a new breed of "next-gen racers" have burst onto the scene, with newcomer Jackson Storm leading the pack. With the help of racing trainer Cruz Ramirez, McQueen sets out to get back on track. Before you head out to the theater, take a look at the latest clips from the film, along with LOU - the latest Pixar short, screening just before Cars 3. Get tickets now via my affiliate, Fandango.
It's somewhat hard to believe, but this fall will mark four years since Walt Disney Animation Studios' FROZEN first brought an icy blast into theaters. Families still can't get enough of from the residents of Arendelle, with the Frozen Fever short being too short, and the feature-length sequel still a couple of years off. This holiday season, we'll get a little something to tide us over in the form of an all-new, 21-minute short - Olaf's Frozen Adventure. Making it's debut on November 22 alongside Disney•Pixar's COCO. Check out the trailer below!
