Disney Brings A-Game to “HALL D,” Dazzles Fans With Surprises
MANILA, July 30, 2018 -- The Walt Disney Company (TWDC) Philippines took the AsiaPOP Comicon 2018 by storm when it presented “what’s now and what’s to come” from its powerhouse brands.
"Mickey has brought nine decades of smiles, laughter, hope and happiness to fans all over the world, and to mark this milestone year, we are so pleased to bring Hall D at AsiaPOP Comicon," said Veronica Cabalinan, Country Manager for The Walt Disney Company Philippines. "It’s amazing to see so many Disney Fans gather for the first-ever Hall D in Southeast Asia."
Delightfully billed as “Hall D” (echoing names of fan convention panels in the US), the presentation treated Disney fans to first-look unveiling, jaw-dropping exclusive content and surprise revelations. By the time legendary animator Mark Henn bid the crowd goodbye as the final speaker, the crowd was on its feet, cheering with a standing ovation.
The panel started with a presentation on DisneyLife (the World of Disney in one app) and the big-reveal of new TV programs from Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD.
Award-winning global Filipino artist Kenneth Cobonpue followed with the unveiling of his Star Wars-inspired furniture collection that literally drew gasps for its bold ingenuity. The collaboration between Coponbue and Star Wars proudly showcased Filipino talent at its finest, and the resulting collection is destined to become a design classic.
Indeed, Disney brought its A-game for the first-ever “Hall D” in Asia.
