Marvel and Star Wars have each already delivered major announcements once this year at San Diego Comic-Con and Star Wars Celebration, respectively, but both will be back once again this weekend for the bi-annual D23 Expo.

Due to the pandemic, Disney has unfortunately been unable to hold its grand-scale convention since 2019. However, this year has finally brought back in-person events to their former glory, allowing them to be enjoyed properly once again.

Although the biggest announcements from Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige and Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy will come on Saturday, September 10, during the Hall D23 Presentation, Disney has a whole weekend of fun lined up.

What to Expect from Marvel and Star Wars at D23

Unfortunately, not all the fun of D23 will be available to those watching from around the world, as Disney has already published a limited schedule of what will be streamed online. That will include much of what was discussed above, but not the blockbuster Hall D23 panel that will undoubtedly make the biggest splash.

D23 will include a panel on Friday focused on Marvel, Star Wars, and Disney's upcoming video games which will be streamed online. The event is expected to include reveals from LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Marvel's Midnight Suns, and more upcoming releases.

When it comes to the big Hall D23 presentation, there's no telling what Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios have to offer, especially having already had some massive reveals earlier in the year. The MCU is expected to highlight the likes of Werewolf by Night, Deadpool 3, and more, while Star Wars goes big on the future of the MandoVerse and its other Disney+ content.

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige and Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy will make their big D23 presentations on Saturday, September 10.
