Game news D23: Kingdom Hearts, Star Wars and Marvel … What to expect from Disney conferences?
News from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and more … The wait is at a height for fans of the Disney universe as D23 2022 arrives this weekend with many exclusive announcements on our favorite franchises. Here’s what awaits us.
A generous Disney lecture
Recall that D23 is an important conference that affects all Disney subsidiaries, be it the amusement park, the Disney + series and, of course, their video games. Suffice it to say that the announcements will be legion! This event is well anchored in Disney culture as it takes its name from the year the famous franchise was created, in 1923.
It is Friday at 6 pm that the D23 will open its doors for a weekend. The event will end on the night between Sunday and Monday, more precisely at 4 in the morning. From day one we will have a Disney and Marvel video game showcase that will reveal trailers for upcoming Disney, Pixar, Marvel, 20th Century Studios and Lucasfilm licenses. The event will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of the superhero Spiderman with, hopefully, some announcements about him.
What’s new in video games?
The Disney and Marvel video game showcase will certainly reveal more about the game Marvel’s Midnight Sunsa strategic role-playing game developed by Firaxis Games (XCOM) that has been postponed to September 2022. As for the Star Wars franchise, we can expect the game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, unveiled for March 2023 but also a DLC of the game LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, 6 months after his release. It is also very likely that we will know more about the game of Amy Hennig, (former creative director of Naughty Dog) of which we have no information yet.
Fans dare to hope for information about the game Kingdom Hearts 4, which is a cross between the Disney franchise and Square Enix and on the game Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac Games, which we got to preview last fall. Ubisoft has also created hope since it announced an open game set in the Star Wars universe, but given the company’s radio silence after that announcement, we can’t be sure about its announcement this weekend.
What’s new in movies and series
As for movies and series, we can expect a multitude of announcements for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Phase 4 will certainly reveal more details and should include a new trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda forever. As for the Disney + series and still in the MCU, we risk learning more about the series Werewolf at night and a special episode with Guardians of the Galaxy: “Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special”which will be a conclusion of phase 4 of the MCU according to James Gunn.
We also hope for news on the next two stages of the MCU and upcoming productions, such as season 2 of the series. Loki and of What happens if…? or even more details on the new film Ant-Man and the Vespa: Quantumania. A little less likely but still expected, some fans are hoping to see the film made official Deadpool 3 and the cast of Lama And Lightning.
As for the DisneyLand Paris amusement park, one wonders if the land of Star Wars Galaxy Edge is still relevant or if the few rumors of making it a land of Lion King or Avatar are true. We have also had information about a frozen land for some time and can only wait for information about it.
Do not hesitate to formulate your highest expectations in the comments and we will meet on the site on Friday 9 from 18 for the announcements of the D23.
