ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Disney hasn't become the world's most powerful media company by ignoring its fans.
On Friday, the giant media company opened the doors to its third D23 Expo, a three-day festival of all things Disney. Ranging from a three-plus-hour presentation of everything animated that will be coming from Disney in the next few years -- including three new Pixar films -- to a costume contest, an exhibition of classic artifacts from the Disney archives, and artists' re-imaginings of scenes from the first Mickey Mouse cartoon, "Steamboat Willie," D23 has something for everyone.
During the animation presentation, Walt Disney Animation's chief creative officer -- and Pixar head -- John Lasseter and a number of others from Disney unveiled the latest details from films such as "Frozen," "Zootopia," "Big Hero 6," and more. There was even a brand-new Mickey Mouse cartoon. On Saturday, Disney will host a similar presentation covering its live-action film slated. So please stay tuned for more CNET coverage from D23, which runs through the weekend.
