    One of the more shocking reveals at D23 this year was how light the company had been on Star Wars news. Most surprising for some may be that there was no update on the next scheduled big screen venture in the Star Wars universe: Rogue Squadron, directed by Patty Jenkins.

    No mention of Rogue Squadron.

    The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Ride at Disney Hollywood Studios lights up for its late night overlay

    Disney’s gonna look me in the eye and make another Haunted Mansion comedy movie like the 2003 version didn’t happen? Sorry, but if the new version isn’t scary then I don’t want it. Gimme the Tower of Terror movie I deserve cowards.

    D23 Expo 2022 Marvel Studios rumors that were untrue: Casting: Denzel Washington, John Boyega, Giancarlo Esposito, Henry Cavill, Jodie Comer, John Krasinski, Dasiy-Edgar Jones and Glenn Howerton. NONE of this was true.

    10. No Mary Poppins Attraction Update

    Bob Chapek discusses a "Mary Poppins" enhancement to the England Pavilion at EPCOT at D23 in 2019

    I think it's important to note that none of this is concrete. Kind of upset that old projects like Mary Poppins and the current state of Genie+ were never mentioned. #dpep #d23

    Jamie Lee Curtis, Justin Simien and Sean Bailey appear at the 2022 D23 Expo Panel for "The Haunted Mansion" film in 2023.

    Also I’m disappointed every D23 we don’t get a new country for World Showcase. THERES SO MUCH SPACE! Use IP I don’t care about that at all. Gimmie Greece with a Hercules ride you won’t hear me complain. Even with the current countries the lack of expansion/rides is SHOCKING to me
