Fans Can’t Wait To Get Up Close and Personal With These Iconic Disney Celebrities

One of the most exciting aspects of Disney’s ultimate fan event is celebrity appearances. Although Hollywood may have lost some of its luster these days, due to a global awakening from the pandemic, it’s still exciting for fans to see some of their favorite stars in person.

D23 Expo 2022 is just a few days away! The epic weekend starts on Friday, September 9, continuing until Sunday, September 11. Fans unable to be there in person can livestream the event from the comfort of their own homes.

Captain Marvel (2019) star Brie Larson will be on deck but not for any Marvel-themed entertainment, as one might assume. The actor stepped into the role of director for an upcoming Disney+ docuseries called Growing Up.

Larson will appear during Disney’s Epic Entertainment Showcase: The Musical: The Extravaganza! Other notable celebrity appearances include Catherine Zeta-Jones, who will be starring in a National Treasure (2004) spinoff entitled National Treasure: Edge of History.
