Every Disney Movie And TV Show Revealed At D23 Expo 2022
It's D23 time, a yearly celebration of everything coming from Disney in the near future. Friday's events covered games like the upcoming one featuring Captain America and Black Panther. However, a good chunk of Disney's Friday was showing off future movie releases from live-action to animated to remakes to Pixar. Here is everything that was announced on Friday for Disney Studios.
The evening kicked off with the highly-anticipated Hocus Pocus 2, and a brand-new trailer, the first of many film announcements that would be hitting the streaming service Disney+ along with theaters. Everything announced during the Walt Disney Studios portion of the evening was either a sequel, prequel, or remake of sorts--films already dealing with previously existing ideas.
