What happens when Disney throws a party for itself and everyone is invited? The answer is D23, this weekend’s trade show-slash-Disney party with new teasers, news, and footage from the company’s expanding lineup of Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar properties. We’ve already seen a few updates on Wreck-It Ralph 2 and The Incredibles 2, but for the sequel-phobic among you, there was also a pretty high-profile announcement of Pixar’s upcoming original feature.

A big part of every D23 convention is the Disney Legends Awards, where the company honors its own, celebrating artists and executives who have made major contributions to the Walt Disney Company. This year’s honorees include Oprah Winfrey, Mark Hamill, and the late Carrie Fisher. The Marvel portion of the event honored two of the comics company’s most important creators: Writer and editor Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby. Kirby passed away in 1994, so his son accepted his award on his behalf, but Stan “The Man” was on hand to accept his Disney Legends honor. He gave a great speech, and a very emotional one as well.

Dang, Thanos got shredded. Gone is the lazy titan who can’t be bothered to get his giant purple butt up off that excessively swanky space chair. As teased in the post-credits scene from Captain America: Civil War, the new Thanos means business, and thanks to a new statue unveiled at D23, you can see just how serious he is about obliterating the MCU in Avengers: Infinity War.

One of the coolest parts of Marvel’s Ant-Man was the final tease of a superheroic future for Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne as the Wasp. It was also one of the more frustrating parts of Ant-Man, since we waited the whole movie to see Hope cut loose only to see her costumed alter ego put on hold until a potential sequel. Now the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, is less than a year away, and Hope’s moment in the sun is finally almost here.

‘Toy Story 4’ Will Be a Love Story Between Woody and Bo Peep
Normally, you’d dread the fourth entry in any beloved film series, but it feels kind of okay to have positive thoughts about Toy Story 4. After all, its three predecessors are among the strongest films in Pixar’s mostly untouchable library. If anyone can make the fourth feature-length adventure of a cowboy doll and his friends sing, it’s these guys. So, without further ado, here’s what the film is about, straight from the mouth of Pixar founder and Disney chief creative officer John Lasseter,

If you’re the Star Wars fan who loves to be teased with lots of hints and clips about the upcoming movies then J.J. Abrams is basically your Darth Vader. Abrams hates to tease people with lots of hints and clips; he prefers to keep as much of his movies hidden from view for as long as humanly possible. His Bad Robot team practices a code of omerta that would make the Mafia blush.

Marvel abstained from Comic-Con this year and Lucasfilm didn’t bring any new Star Wars footage to San Diego (that behind the scenes featurette was great, though), but we knew we wouldn’t have to wait much longer for Disney to show off these two highly anticipated properties — the studio’s D23 expo is approaching, and sure enough, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar will all have a major presence.
