In recent years, Comic-Con has been criticized for becoming too Hollywood as all the major studios would come down to San Diego and woo fans with their upcoming projects. This year, Disney — which owns both Marvel and Pixardidn’t have a big presence there. Most surmised that was because Disney has its own version of Comic-Con, The D23 Expo, a few weeks later.

Confirmed films to have a presence at D23 are as follows: The Muppets, John Carter, Brave, The Avengers,  Frankenweenie, Oz: The Great and Powerful, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Wreck-It Ralph, and Monsters University. Attendees will also get to see the new, 3D version of The Lion King. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Peter first reported on the Star Tours revamp back in May, rounding up a good deal of info on what we can expect from it, most of which still hasn’t been officially revealed. The juicy bits of his report will follow the break, along with the trailer itself.
