d23 expo 2019 schedule

San Diego Comic-Con may be losing its status as the premiere convention for all things geeky, but Disney’s biannual D23 Expo only grows in influence and anticipation every year. This year’s D23 is especially exciting with the upcoming November launch of Disney+, the Disney streaming platform that will feature original and already-released titles from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. Not to mention the upcoming slate of Marvel Studios, which enters a new era following the release of this year’s behemoth hit Avengers: Endgame.

When can you find out all the juicy new details about all these properties? The company has revealed what days we can expect all things Disney to drop with the release of the official D23 Expo 2019 schedule. See the jam-packed schedule below.

lady and the tramp remake song

When you hear the title Lady and the Tramp, two things likely come to mind. One is the famous scene where the two dogs share some back-alley spaghetti. The other is “The Siamese Cat Song.” While dogs eating pasta is still perfectly acceptable (in small doses – don’t let your dogs get overweight!), the “Siamese Cat Song” has not aged so well. In fact, it’s quite problematic, to say the least.

Disney is about to unleash a new live-action Lady and the Tramp remake for Disney+, and if you were wondering if the “Siamese Cat Song” would make it into the new film, we now have the answer. Janelle Monae is “reinventing” the song, which means it’ll probably be completely different, and far less offensive.

Lady and the Tramp cast

Tessa Thompson is having a hell of a year. She played supporting roles in Boots Riley’s blistering satire Sorry to Bother You, Alex Garland’s mind-bending Annihilation, and the second season of HBO’s twisty prestige drama Westworld. She was recently cast as the female lead of Sony’s Men in Black reboot, and now she has another leading role to add to her ever-growing resume: she’ll provide a voice in Disney’s live-action/CGI hybrid remake of Lady and the Tramp.

Thompson isn’t the only one to join the Lady and the Tramp cast: Benedict Wong (Avengers: Infinity War) is also on board. Find out more about who they’re playing below.

Aladdin's Genie and Sebastian

Even casual Disney fans have likely noticed that the studio’s various animated features often contain subtle nods at each other. Rapunzel from Tangled has Disney fairy tale books in her collection, Nani from Lilo & Stitch has a Mulan poster, et cetera. But what if these aren’t mere sight gags from playful animators. What if, instead, they’re hard evidence that all of these movies take place in the same universe?

In an homage of sorts to Jon Negroni’s The Pixar Theory, Josh Butler posits that 30 of Disney’s animated features share a world. His thesis requires some suspension of disbelief — for one thing, it involves a lot of magic and time travel — but it’s fun to think about nonetheless. Hit the jump to see how Butler’s theory shakes out.
