Disney doesn’t just corner the market in film, merchandise, theme parks, and travel, it also has a stake in television. Some of the best original shows and documentary series could be found on ABC Entertainment, ABC News, Disney Branded Television, Freeform, FX, Hulu Originals, National Geographic Content and Onyx Collective. And we will get to see the future of television and streaming through the “Journey Into Storytelling” experience on the show floor pavilion at the D23 Expo this fall.
Through interactive activations on the convention floor as well as shows, panels and talent appearances, fans will immerse themselves in the wonders of storytelling from some of the most iconic and culture-defining shows like “Abbott Elementary,” “American Born Chinese,” “American Horror Story,” “Cruel Summer,” “Epic Adventures with Bertie Gregory,” “Fire of Love,” “Good Morning America,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Kardashians,” “Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers,” “Limitless with Chris Hemsworth,” “National Treasure: Edge of History,” “Only Murders in the Building” and “ZOMBIES 3.”
Fans of daytime television favorites “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “Tamron Hall” can take center stage for a photo and video moment where they will feel like they’re part of the show at these fun photo booth opportunities — located in Hall B of the D23 Expo floor. In addition, fans can see Tamron Hall in-person moderating various panels across D23 Expo.
While more details are yet to come, attendees can attend exciting new panels across the five stages at Hall D23, Premiere Stage, Backlot Stage, Walt Disney Archive Stage, and Hyperion Stage. These panels include a sneak peek into ABC Entertainment’s upcoming special “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration” and a special fan experience celebrating “The Simpsons” reign as the longest-running animated series of all time. Additional programming will take place on the Disney Bundle Stage.
And the experience isn’t just limited to broadcast TV, cable, and streaming, but also TV News, sports, and more. Below are just a small list of things you can see if you enjoy what Disney has to offer in its television division.
