D23 TO MAKE FIRST-EVER APPEARANCE AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON

The Official Community for Disney Fans to Bring Special Exhibits, Sneak Peeks and a D23 Member-Exclusive Lithograph to Comic-Con

BURBANK, Calif. – July 8, 2009 – The fantastic intersection of Disney creativity and science-fiction imagination will be the focus of D23’s first-ever appearance at San Diego Comic-Con from July 23 to July 26, and D23: The Official Community for Disney Fans has been developing unique plans for its debut at the popular annual convention.

At Booth 3917 on the Comic-Con floor, D23 will present a display of costumes and props from Disney’s classic sci-fi and fantasy films, including The Rocketeer, The Black Hole, Condorman, Sky High and 1982’s landmark Tron.  This “Heroic and Robotic” exhibition has been created exclusively for Comic-Con International 2009.

Comic-Con attendees who also are members of Disney’s rapidly growing D23 – or who sign up during the four days of Comic-Con – can receive a free, exclusive lithograph by Disney master artist Dave Pacheco, which celebrates famous Disney robots.  (To receive the lithograph, D23 Members must provide their membership card and photo identification at the D23 booth.)  The limited-edition lithograph comes with a certificate of authenticity and will be available only during Comic-Con while supplies last.

D23 also will  provide a sneak peek of its upcoming D23 Expo, the ultimate Disney fan event, to be held this Sept. 10-13 at the Anaheim Convention Center.  The upcoming fall issue of Disney twenty-three magazine, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion, will be previewed, as well.

For more details about D23’s Comic-Con plans and for information on the D23 Expo,, fans can visit www.disney.com/D23, or follow “Disney D23” at Twitter and on Facebook.

The Voice of Disney's Mickey Mouse, Wayne Allwine, Passes Away

wayne-allwineWayne Allwine, the voice of Disney’s Mickey Mouse for the past 30 years, has died from complications of diabetes. He was 62.

Allwine is the third person to voice the beloved character. He started in 1977 working on “The New Mickey Mouse Clubhouse“.  Through the years, he has provided countless hours giving a voice to Mickey, including the film, “Mickey’s Christmas Carol” and even for the “Kingdom Hearts” video game series. He was named a Disney Legend in 2008. Wayne was also a good friend to the Disney fan community appearing at numerous NFFC and Disneyana conventions to give a face to the voice of the famous mouse.

Allwine leaves behind a wife, Russi Taylor, who is the current voice of Minnie Mouse.  They were married in Hawaii in 1991.

The staff at JeffLangeDVD wish the best for the Allwine family, and their friends during this hard time.
