Summer 2024

Inside Disney twenty-three, D23 Gold Members will get a first look at the innovative storytelling and behind-the-scenes moments from beloved franchises and brand-new titles. It starts with the publication’s cover: On June 14, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust are back and ready for a bumpy ride in Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 as Riley navigates the roller coaster of emotions that comes with being a teenager. The highly anticipated sequel to the 2015 Academy Award®-winning film Inside Out will introduce moviegoers to four new Emotions arriving in Riley’s mind—including Anxiety (voiced by Maya Hawke), who appears on the cover with Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler). Disney twenty-three talked to both Hawke and Poehler as well as director Kelsey Mann and cast members Tony Hale (Fear), Lewis Black (Anger), and Phyllis Smith (Sadness). They share the inside scoop on the next chapter of Riley’s life and look back at the iconic movie that started it all.

D23 Gold Members will also have the chance to get an exclusive look at Disney Parks’ largest park expansion, Fantasy Springs, the extraordinary new port of call at Tokyo DisneySea within Tokyo Disney Resort. Inspired by the worlds of Peter Pan (1953), Tangled (2010), and Frozen (2013), Fantasy Springs creates all-new immersive experiences for parkgoers. D23 Gold Members will be the first to see all-exclusive photographs and read interviews with the Walt Disney Imagineers who created this magical port in collaboration with Oriental Land Company.
