Celebrating 90 Years of Mickey Mouse with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club

Celebrating 90 Years of Mickey Mouse with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club

As D23 continues to celebrate the 90th birthday of Mickey Mouse, this panel will take place on Friday, July 20th from 4:45-5:45 pm in Room 6A. Mickey Mouse’s career began with Steamboat Willie and has become one of the most beloved characters of all time. Travel around the world and Mickey Mouse can be found just about anywhere (I can attest to this). This panel will be hosted by D23’s Justin Arthur. It will also include Bret Iwan (Voice Actor), Becky Cline (Director, the Walt Disney Archives), and Mark Henn (Master Disney Animator). Together they will look at Mickey Mouse’s many roles on the small screen, big screen, Theme Parks, and many other places!

25 Years of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club

25 Years of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club

On Saturday, July 21st from 7:45-8:45 pm in Room 6BCF, 25 Years of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club will be offered. With this panel, guests will get a look behind this legendary movie that was the first to bring Halloween and Christmas together. The panel will include Henry Selick (Director), Kelly Asbury (Art Director), Edie Ichioka (Editor), and Anthony Scott (Animator). This team brought the movie to life 25 years ago and they will be looking back at the creation of this film. It should be noted that D23 suggests that if you are attending the D23 San Diego Member Mixer to make sure you allow enough time to get to this panel
