D23 BLACK FLAME BALL: SPELL-EBRATING 30 YEARS OF HOCUS POCUS
Just like the sinister Sanderson Sisters, D23 is heading back to Salem, Massachusetts—bringing a bombastic blowout bash to this historic town.

25 YEARS OF HALLOWEENTOWN WITH D23
Return to the magic of Halloweentown with D23, in St. Helens, Oregon, where we’ll be hosting very special 25th Anniversary screenings of this DCOM classic in Halloweentown itself!
SLEEPY HOLLOW INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
D23 is excited to bring a few spine-tingling classics to the film fest that’s a “celebration of outstanding genre cinema in the historic cradle of the American supernatural”—located in the storied town of Sleepy Hollow, New York.
TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS: 30TH ANNIVERSARY
Fans and stans of every age, wouldn’t you like to see something strange? Come with us and you will see, the Halloween world with D23!

100 YEARS OF DISNEY
100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY
In 1923, Walt and Roy Disney started a dream that came true. All because of you. D23 is bringing the dream to life for the fans and welcoming Members to an enchanted celebration at the historic Walt Disney Studios on October 16—the actual 100th Anniversary of Disney. It’s going to be something very special, so stay connected for more details coming soon. And you’re the first to hear that the fall issue of Disney twenty-three will be a special edition commemorating this milestone.
This year is also marked by a remarkable new story from Walt Disney Animation Studios, also celebrating its 100th anniversary. They are bringing to life an epic tale that has been a century in the making. Blending multiple styles of animation and referencing a myriad of classic Disney films, “Wish” is positioned to make every wish you’ve ever had come true. To close out the year, D23 will celebrate the debut of this fantastic new feature with special screenings and so much more.
