Nostalgia Rules at Disney’s 2017 D23 Presentations

A Wrinkle in Time, Star Wars, Disney Princesses, Aladdin, The Lion King, Mary Poppins and more! Disney was pulling out all the stops at D23 and most of their projects are nostalgia-filled.

First, another busy release timeline!

Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time, based on Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel, was perhaps most anticipated and had its trailer (above) debut at the show.

Disney Princesses had a surprise get-together for Wreck-It-Ralph 2!

The long-awaited sequel to The Incredibles finally gets some real movement…

Though it was reported this past week that Disney was having trouble finding the right actors to lead Guy Ritchie’s live-action Aladdin, the studio revealed the big news today.

They also showed some of the first footage from Jon Favreau’s “live-action” Lion King.

And updated on that Tim Burton Dumbo

Mary Poppins Returns got a motion poster!

And I found out about a movie I previously hadn’t heard about…

Of course Lucasfilm being part of the Disney family, there was also a Star Wars: The Last Jedi portion of the show which features this emotional behind the scenes video.

Some new posters as well…

And yesterday they showed off the model of the upcoming Star Wars Land, now called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, at Disney parks!

Today’s presentation also premiered Avengers: Infinity War footage. The main takeaway was that Captain America had a beard.

And last but not least, this touching meeting…
