D23 Expo: Chadwick Boseman, Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey among the new Disney Legends | Cinema

There are only a few weeks left to D23 Expo, the great convention of Disney fans which, after a break due to the pandemic, returns to Anaheim from 9 to 11 September (preceded by Disney + Day).

One of the highlights of the D23 Expo is the Disney Legends Awards ceremony, the awards given to people who have made an “extraordinary contribution to the Disney legacy.” 14 talent will be awarded, including Chadwick Boseman, who will receive posthumous recognition.

The award is a bronze sculpture representing the imagination, creativity and magic that the Disney Legends have brought to the company. In addition, the new Legends leave their footprints during a ceremony at the end of the event.

Here is the list:

  • Anthony Anderson,
  • Kristen Bell,
  • Chadwick Boseman,
  • Rob’t Coltrin,
  • Patrick Dempsey,
  • Robert Price “Bob” Foster,
  • Jonathan Groff,
  • Don Hahn,
  • Josh Gad,
  • Doris Hardoon,
  • Idina Menzel,
  • Chris Montan,
  • Ellen Pompey,
  • Tracee Ellis Ross

Among the nearly 300 Disney Legends are names such as Tim Allen, Julie Andrews, Beatrice Arthur, Howard Ashman, Regis Philbin, Annette Funicello, Peter Jennings, Johnny Depp, Estelle Getty, George Lucas, Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin, Rue McClanahan, Alan Menken , Hayley Mills, Fess Parker, Sir Tim Rice, Dick Van Dyke, Barbara Walters, Betty White, Robin Williams, Hans Zimmer and Jon Favreau, Carrie Fisher and Stan Lee.

The ceremony will not be conducted by CEO Bob Chapek, but by Tamron Hall. Chapek will take care of presenting a second ceremony, also on 9 September, aimed at celebrating the centenary of The Walt Disney Company (born in October 1923).
