2017 Disney Legends Announced

2017 Disney LegendsYesterday Disney announced the lineup for the 2017 Disney Legends. This year is the 30th Anniversary of Disney Legends and celebrates the incredible contributions these people made to the Disney legacy.

The 2017 Disney Legends are as follows:

  • Oprah Winfrey (Producer, Actress and Talk Show Host)
  • Carrie Fisher (Star Wars)
  • Mark Hamill (Star Wars)
  • Stan Lee (Marvel)
  • Wayne Jackson (Disney Imagineer)
  • Clyde “Gerry” Geronimi (Animator)
  • Manuel Gonzales (Animator)
  • Garry Marshall (Director)
  • Julie Taymor (Lion King on Broadway)

The honorees will be inducted in a ceremony at the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday July 14th, 2017 during the D23 Expo, and hosted by Disney CEO Bob Iger.

I think this is a good lineup of inductees, I love when some of the people who are more behind the scenes and don’t usually get a ton of recognition are able to get some during an event like this.

Tickets and more information are available now at
