At the upcoming 30th Annual Disney Legends Awards Ceremony, the president and CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, will be inducting several people into the hall of fame. This ceremony will take place at the annual D23 expo.
The late Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Stan Lee are among those who will be honored at the ceremony. The studio giant has much more to choose from in actors now that they own Lucasfilm and Marvel. The late Gary Marshall, who directed Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries, as well as Oprah Winfrey, will also be honored at the ceremony.
Carrie Fisher originated the role of Princess Leia in Star Wars: A New Hope and then played her in four films, not including the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Her death posed a question of whether or not she will appear in the upcoming film, but it’s been confirmed that Fisher will appear in The Last Jedi.
Stan Lee is practically the face of Marvel and he was there at the beginning of the company’s inception and helped co-create several beloved comic book characters we know today. This includes Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men, which he all co-created with Jack Kirby.
The D23 Expo will be held on July 14, 2017.
8 Ways In Which ‘Star Wars’ Can Reach Its Full Potential
The Star Wars Universe is one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time and the high quality of the recent films are not only proving how strong a franchise it is, but also continuing to gain legions of new fans every year. The series is fantastic and Disney’s films have brought it back in favor with both audiences and fans, but like any good franchise there are always ways in which a series can improve and as a huge fan I don’t think the series is at its full potential yet. There have been some minor issues and things that could be done differently that could make the series even greater than it already is and these can be addressed in future Star Wars films and in other mediums as well. With all of this being said it is appropriate to look at some of these issues and see how they can be addressed in a manner that could give everyone what they will want.
