Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media division (DCPI) has released information on some exciting new presentations set to take place during this year’s D23 Expo.
The D23 Expo will take place July 14 – 16, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Throughout the Expo, guests can visit the DCPI pavilion on the show floor and experience how Disney, Pixar, Star Wars or Marvel can enrich their daily lives.
