    1. The Cast of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series opened up the panel with a performance of "We're All In This Together," and it was EVERYTHING.

    3. And then we got the shock of the century when it was announced that Hilary Duff is coming back for a Lizzie McGuire reboot...which we always knew we wanted, but never quite knew how much we NEEDED until we heard about it.

    8. Then Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige hit the stage and we learned a little bit more about What If...?, the first animated Marvel Cinematic Universe series. The series will explore alternate timelines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beginning with an episode that sees Peggy Carter AS Captain America.

    And the original Peggy Carter herself, Hayley Atwell, will be voicing the character!

    9. We found out that some familiar MCU faces will be joining Falcon and the Winter Soldier, including Daniel Brühl returning as Helmut Zemo and Emily VanCamp returning as Peggy Carter's niece, Sharon.

    10. We were also treated to an exclusive sneak peek of the original series, WandaVision, which follows love birds Wanda and Vision.

    The creators noted that the series will be like NOTHING the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen before. It was inspired by, of all things, The Dick Van Dyke Show and promises to be half-classic sitcom and half-MCU epic adventure, with Kat Dennings reprising her Thor role as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park reprising his role from Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Marvel newcomer Katherine Hahn as "a wacky, nosey neighbor."

    11. And — while we learned virtually NOTHING about them besides their existence — Feige ALSO revealed that three new series will be joining the MCU: Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk:

    Just announced at #D23Expo, MS. MARVEL, an original series from Marvel Studios, only on Disney+

    Just announced at #D23Expo, MOON KNIGHT, an original series from Marvel Studios, only on Disney+

    Just announced at #D23Expo, SHE-HULK, an original series from Marvel Studios, only on Disney+

    12. Then Kathleen Kennedy — the president of Lucasfilm Ltd. — confirmed that Disney+ will be the official home to the ENTIRE Star Wars Collection, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (within a year of its release).

    13. We also learned that the incredibly popular animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series will be returning with new episodes beginning February 2020.
