Disney D23, a biennial convention held to promote the eponymous company’s slate of films and other projects over the course of the subsequent two years, is rapidly approaching – so they’ve presented an outline of some of the most crucial events that will be held there.
Disney unveiled a few of their major plans through their official D23 website:
Friday, July 14
Disney Legends Awards Ceremony (10 a.m.)
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios (2:30 p.m.)
Saturday, July 15
The Walt Disney Studios Live-Action Films (10:30 a.m.)
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts (3 p.m.)
Sunday, July 16
A Whole New World of Alan Menken (1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.)
Expect the convention to be fairly light on announcements related to Marvel, since the San Diego Comic Con will be held about a week later, and they’ve already confirmed that there will be a Marvel Studios panel there. Star Wars announcements, conversely, have been rumored, which would make sense considering that the event happens three months after Star Wars Celebration Orlando.
Disney D23 2017 will be held from July 14 to July 16 at Anaheim, California.

The Walt Disney Animation Library, Ranked From Worst To Best
Disney had made an unconventional “franchise” out of remaking its animated classics as live-action blockbusters. Combined with their Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars stables, it has ensured the company’s continued domination in the film sphere. Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book were at the forefront of that charge the last few years. Now, with Beauty and the Beast hitting theaters (our review here), now is a great time to look back at Disney’s amazing animated catalog and how they stack up against each other.
Disney has had a lot of animated films released theatrically or direct-to-video, sometimes in collaboration with other studios. This list specifically focuses on those from the Walt Disney Animation department, so sorry Brave Little Toaster fans, of which I’m one. No Pixar flicks either, but fans of that studio are in luck, as we ranked their films last summer. You can check that list out below.
I haven’t seen Saludos Amigos, Make Music Mine, Song of the South, Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, & The Three Caballeros, hence their exclusion. Naturally, we’ll most likely disagree about the specific ordering. Let’s think of it as a conversation starter. I’d love to hear what you guys think in the comments!
