In some ways, D23 Expo is a three-day live version of Disney's streaming service Disney+. TV shows, movies, and specials from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Studios, National Geographic, and more are on the streaming service.

Popverse is in and around D23 Expo 2022 this year, reporting on the big things coming from Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, and Disney. Bookmark Popverse's D23 Expo coverage round-up page, as we're adding to it daily - and even after the event itself.

And if you like the idea of watching panels from home, Popverse will be filming (and in some cases streaming) panels from the upcoming New York Comic Con. In fact, we've already done it earlier this year at C2E2 and Emerald City Comic Con.
