Winter 2022

In 2009, James Cameron’s Avatar transported audiences to a completely new world, exploring a dazzling landscape of colorful characters and unique species, while touching the hearts of millions. The Winter issue of Disney twenty-three takes readers back to Pandora for a new set of adventures that await fans in Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water. The much-anticipated sequel to the highest-grossing movie of all time opens in theaters December 16, and Disney twenty-three goes behind the scenes on the next chapter in this groundbreaking story with stars Sam Worthington (Jake), Zoe Saldaña (Neytiri), and Sigourney Weaver (Kiri), as well as producer Jon Landau. “At its core, Avatar: The Way of Water is about family, about survival, about our Na’vi and human family, and about the greater family with our fellow creatures and our flora and fauna,” says Weaver.

D23 Expo 2022 gave fans a first look at Disney 100 Years of Wonder. The new issue explores some of the highlights of the celebration—including new theme park spectaculars, incredible films, and an immersive touring exhibition from the Walt Disney Archives.

The new issue, available exclusively to Gold Members of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, also takes a boat ride down memory lane with Disney Park historians to commemorate 25 years of “it’s a small world” Holiday. As a special bonus, each issue of the publication will include a set of holiday-themed gift tags as part of D23 Season of Magic presented by Target.
