Those in the Southern California area in August that are looking to attend the D23 Expo in August now have even more incentive to do so, as Disney is pointing to the event as a chance to witness new reveals for Kingdom Hearts III, as well as go hands-on with Star Wars Battlefront.


The annual D23 Expo is home to the biggest Disney convention of the year. That will often span movies, television, theme park memorabilia, and pretty much anything else Disney. And yes, that includes video games. Today, Disney announced the games that will be attendance at this year's expo, which will also include the very elusive Kingdom Hearts III.

Hall D23 will be home to new trailers and announcements regarding some of the biggest games with the Disney name on it. This includes the aforementioned Kingdom Hearts III from Square Enix, but also includes new reveals for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront from EA and DICE and Disney Infinity 3.0. New Disney Infinity figures and Play Sets are being promised for this presentation, which will take place on Sunday, August 16 at 11am.

Those that cannot make the Hall D23 presentation can hit the show floor to go hands-on with some of the latest Disney Infinity 3.0 Play Sets. This will include the Twilight of the Republic, Rise Against The Empire, Inside Out, and various Toy Box features. This will also include the recently revealed Hulkbuster Iron Man and Ultron figures.

Fans will also be able to try out Star Wars Battlefront on the show floor, as well as the Star Wars: Battle Pod arcade game and Star Wars: Commander mobile game.

The D23 Expo begins on Friday, August 14 in Anaheim, CA. Tickets are available on the D23 Expo website.
