During the Expo, Disney will be hosting panels about the future of Marvel movies, Disney animated movies, Disney live-action movies, the Disney parks, and SO MUCH MORE.

Well, we’ll be covering everything you need to know, but if you want to watch some of the action LIVE from your couch…you CAN!

D23 already revealed that a livestream of parts of the Expo would be available, and specifically shared that the opening ceremony would be available to stream. But now we’ve got the FULL livestream schedule!
