D23 Expo is a biennial event that celebrates all the magic and adventure Disney has to offer. The fan event, which first occurred in 2009, covers film, television, theme parks and more under the Disney umbrella. The expo last took place Aug. 23-25, 2019 and presented extended looks at a slew of Disney/Pixar, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox films. Raya and the Last Dragon and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is still in production, were announced during the celebration. The next event was originally set for 2021 but was delayed to next year due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions. Star Wars Celebration, another big event that assembles Star Wars' many legions of fans, was also pushed to August 2022.

As well as revealing D23 Expo 2022 details, the announcement also divulged several new and updated experiences available throughout the year for members of D23, Disney's exclusive fan club. These include a 50th-anniversary celebration of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Disney's 1971 live-action and animation hybrid musical; a window dedication event for Walt Disney Archives founder Dave Smith; and milestone anniversary ceremonies for Lilo & Stitch, Hercules, Aladdin, and The Muppet Christmas Carol. Disney will also welcome back visitors for tours of the Walt Disney Studios lot, where fans can explore the historic site, including Walt's own office suite.

Aside from events scheduled for California, the D23 fan club will hold an offsite celebration in Walt Disney's hometown of Marceline, Missouri at the Walt Disney Hometown Museum. Marceline was the inspiration for Disneyland's iconic Main Street, U.S.A. D23 members will also receive special access to the North American tours of The Lion King and Frozen musical productions in Austin, St. Louis and Orlando.

Tickets for D23 Expo 2022 go on sale Jan. 20. Fans don't need to be D23 members to purchase tickets and attend, but the event offers exclusive benefits for Gold Members such as access to the D23 Gold Member Lounge and discounts on merchandise.
