Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have announced details for what D23 Expo 2019 attendees can expect.

Before we get into that news,  There will be a Simpson panel.  Welcome to the house of mouse Bart and family.

The Simpsons panel at D23 will happen on August 24, and it will feature appearances from Matt Groening, executive producers Al Jean and Matt Selman, supervising director Mike B. Anderson, and cast members Nancy Cartwright and Yeardley Smith (Bart and Lisa!). Plus, there will be “lots of surprises” and “an exclusive collectible item for everyone in attendance.”

Go Behind the Scenes with The Walt Disney Studios, on Saturday, August 24, at 10 a.m. in Hall D23, as Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Chief Creative Officer Jennifer Lee and Pixar Animation Studios’ Chief Creative Officer Pete Docter present never-before-seen footage and share surprise announcements. You’ll also catch musical performances and appearances by all-star voice talent from upcoming animation films.

You’ll get a chance to see a super-cool sneak peek at the upcoming Frozen 2 when directors Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee, and producer Peter Del Vecho reveal brand new details from the film. Plus, director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae will introduce you to the characters of Pixar’s upcoming original feature film Onward. But, that’s not all. You’ll even get to hear Docter and producer Dana Murray share some details on next summer’s original feature Soul.

All weekend long from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily on the Show Floor, the studios will team up once again for an immersive animation experience at D23 Expo. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about Frozen 2 and Onward while also getting the chance to meet the teams behind the movies and receive autograph signings of exclusive art and a promotional giveaway!

Fans will have the opportunity to step inside a real-life version of Guinevere, the van from Pixar’s upcoming Onward. Decked out with crescent moon windows and a “Pegacorn” (part Pegasus, part unicorn, ) painted on the sides, Guinevere will offer guests a taste of the adventure that the two teenage elf brothers embark upon in the film.
