Ep61: D23 Expo Recap

Aug 19, 2015 | Podcast episode, Podketeers

In this episode: In this super-sized episode we try to recap the D23 Expo and talk about some of the panels that we attended. We also get a couple of messages from listeners who went to the Expo and attended panels we could not attend.

Here are a few photos from the Legends ceremony:


The Pixar panel was one of places where photography, video and audio recordings were not allowed. So the only photo that Heyzen was able to get was this one:

The panel itself was for the latest short films Blu-ray available and it was fantastic! The new collection includes the following titles:

  • Frozen Fever (2015) – Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee, Peter Del Vecho, Aimee Scribner
  • Feast (2014) – Academy Award® Winner, Patrick Osborne, Kristina Reed
  • Get A Horse! (2013) – Academy Award® Nominated, Dorothy McKim, Eric Goldberg, Adam Green
  • Paperman (2012) – Academy Award® Winner, Kristina Reed, John Kahr
  • Tangled Ever After (2012) – Nathan Greno, Aimee Scribner, Mark Kennedy
  • The Ballad of Nessie (2011) – Kevin Deters, Stevie Wermers-Skelton, Dorothy McKim
  • Tick Tock Tale (2010) – Dean Wellins
  • Prep & Landing: Operation Secret Santa (2010) – Kevin Deters, Stevie Wermers-Skelton, Dorothy McKim
  • How to Hook Up Your Home Theater (2007) – Kevin Deters, Stevie Wermers-Skelton, Ian Gooding
  • The Little Matchgirl (2006) – Academy Award Nominated, Dave Bossert, Tom MacDougall
  • Lorenzo (2004) – Academy Award Nominated, Mike Gabriel
  • John Henry (2000) – Mark Henn

Even though the entire panel was amazing, one of the coolest things we learned from it is that Mike Gabriel created the Castle animation at the beginning of all Disney movies. All the people on the panel had a short on the new Blue-ray (in the Amazon button above). If you would like to purchase it, we would love it if you would use the link to the movie we provided above. 🙂


While trying to get the “Hatbox Ghost” trading card, here was a sample of the craziness:


Here’s a photo from the ‘Once Upon a Time’ panel:

Until next time! °o°

      Thanks, Jonny!

      Man, there was SOO much I still wanted to talk about but there was just so much. This episode could have easily gone 4-5 hours! Haha! We’ll definitely talk about it in an upcoming episode though. Wall-E ride, anyone? 😉
