We’re less than three months away now from the D23 Expo, and information is starting to come in about all the exciting things in store. Recently, D23 announced some of the items that will be on display at the Expo’s Treasures of the Walt Disney Archive exhibit, which will feature a collection of items from Mary Poppins.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins this year, the Archives exhibit at the Expo will feature a wide variety of items from the iconic live-action film. Expo attendees will be able to view such items as costumes from the film, Bert and Mary’s carousel horses, the snow globe used in the “Feed the Birds” sequence, Mary’s carpet bag, concept art, and more. The Expo’s recurring Fan Art exhibit will feature art from Mary Poppins as well.
However, the Archives exhibit will also include a wide variety of items from the Walt Disney Archives’ many different collections, including a variety of costumes from ABC’s Once Upon a Time. To celebrate the success of Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, the exhibit will also have a number of items on display that celebrate Disney’s history with L. Frank Baum’s Oz books. Items on display will include props and costumes from Return to Oz and Oz: The Great and Powerful; concept art from unrealized attractions and Disney Studio productions; and the patchwork dress costume from the “Rainbow Road to Oz” segment on the 1957 special The Fourth Anniversary Show.
The 2013 D23 Expo will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center from August 9-11. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit D23.com.
