Current Events: The Disney 2017/2018 Showcase Event – The Highlights!

We just came out of the Disney 2017/2018 Showcase and man, what a lineup they have for the next 12 months! For your convenience, I’ll cover some of the highlights and details of the most awesome things we got to see!

  • Disney confirmed that they are trying to move away from ‘typical’ Disney Princess stereotypes.
  • New Duck Tales series set for 2018 with David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck.
  • Tangled, Big Hero 6 & 101 Dalmatians are each getting a TV series.
  • Animated Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Spider-Man series coming to Disney XD.
  • Incredibles 2 confirmed for June 2018.
  • The Nutcracker confirmed and it stars Morgan Freeman.
  • Four new Marvel films coming in the next 12 months, including Black Panther & Thor: Ragnarok.
  • Guardians Of The Galaxy & Avengers will appear in Infinity War together.
  • Cloak and Dagger and Runaways being added to Marvel TV series lineup.
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Cast confirms behind the scenes that major plot twists and surprises are in store.
  • Mickey Mouse 90 Year Celebration coming 2018.

Clearly, there is some fun and exciting stuff coming and I honestly can’t wait.

What am I the most excited for? Well, probably Star Wars: The Last Jedi, to be honest, but everything else Disney has planned might just end up dwarfing Star Wars (a little bit) this time round. We’ll just have to wait and see how it all pans out.

So far it all looks awesome and I especially like the fact that Disney is making an effort to change ‘Disney Princesses’ to be more relatable and less helpless if not more realistic.

Hopefully, this effort at change will work towards garnering appeal for a new generation of Disney fans all together.

You know, this was supposed to be my day off. But nooooooo. Instead, you got me out here dragging your heavy ass through the burning desert, with your dreadlocks sticking out the back of my parachute.
