D23: What We Learned, Part Four: Everything Else


Okay, so this is the catch-all, kids.  What doesn’t fall into the movies or theme parks comes here, to this humble final installment.  This will be presented in the order in which I care:



  • This was it for me.  I’ve always liked the idea of Kingdom Hearts more than the Gameplay, but if you toss Rapunzel and Baymax in, I’m buying.
  • Baymax appeared all in black, with the idea being that this was the original Baymax who sacrificed himself to save Hiro in the film.

Rey and Finn. Finn is holding a blaster, not a lightsaber. Hmmmmm.

Disney Infinity 3.0

  • Confirmed new characters: Peter Pan, Spot (but not Arlo- The Good Dinosaur) Finn and Rey (The Force Awakens) Judy and Nick (Zootopia) and Hulkbuster and Ultron (Avengers: Age of Ultron)
  • Confirmed new playsets: Marvel Battleground and The Force Awakens
  • Four player will be enabled for the Marvel playset
  • Disney MagicBands will unlock the famous Partners statue from the Magic Kingdom.


Magic Kingdoms

  • Mobile app that lets you build your own theme park
  • Will have plot elements- Maleficent and company decide to wreck your theme park, because that’s what they do now.


Star Wars Battlepods/ Battlefront

  • These were showcased as an immersive video game experience.
  • These are already out in the wild, incidentally.  I’ve seen one in person in Ocean City.
  • They’re a little claustrophobic, and one player called them “like a movie I sort of interacted with.”
  • There’s going to be a Darth Vader skinned PS4 released with Star Wars: Battlefront

John Lasseter Studio Collection

  • Lasster’s ridiculous Hawaiian shirt collection was on display, and they’re actually pretty neat to look at.
