The first day of Disney's D23 Expo was exciting, to say the least, but also a whirlwind. It's like...how many times can you get your mind blown in one sitting?
Here is a list of all the live-action Disney films that were previewed at D23 this year:
1. The Little Mermaid
2. Hocus Pocus 2
4. Peter Pan & Wendy
Hello, origin tale! This film promises to put Wendy front and center. Peter Pan & Wendy debuts in 2023 and stars Jude Law, Alexander Molony, Ever Anderson, Yara Shahidi, Jim Gaffigan, and Alyssa Wapanatahk.
5. Haunted Mansion
The trailer for this film was a surprise and doesn't seem to be released online yet. It features an ensemble cast that includes LaKeith Stanfield, Danny DeVito, Owen Wilson, Winona Ryder, Dan Levy, Hasan Minhaj, and more. I'd say the film has a slight Knives Out feel, but much spookier (and more family-friendly). Can't wait until this gets the proper trailer treatment! Haunted Mansion is set to debut in 2023.
6. Mufasa: The Lion King
Barry Jenkins came out on stage to announce Mufasa: The Lion King, which will be an origin film told from the perspectives of Rafiki, Timon, and Pumbaa. In the short trailer revealed at D23, a young Mufasa is shown being carried away by a flood into an unknown land. Mufasa is slated to debut in 2024.
7. Snow White
Gal Gadot and Rachel Zegler introduced Snow White, another adaptation with high expectations. The teaser was short and only showed Gal in makeup, which was subtle yet resounding, and the iconic apple falling from Snow's hand. Look out for Snow White in 2023.
