Disney and Marvel Set to Invade APCC with Hall D


Keeping true to their promise of delighting fans of all ages, Disney is set to conquer the Asia Pop Comic Con Manila stage this year with a special event exclusive to attendees of the said convention.

Dubbed as “Hall D,” con-goers will be treated to an exclusive showcase of never before seen content, as well as a sneak peek on Disney and Marvel’s upcoming TV shows and films. In addition, the company will be bringing Mark Henn, a legendary animator who had his hand in bringing to life Princesses Ariel, Belle, and Jasmine and adventurers Mulan and Young Simba., as he spearheads the said session.

“We have a lot of great surprises lined up for fans, both old and new ones. Over the years we have built a strong strategic partnership with Marvel in showcasing exclusive content from their movies, TV, animations, comics and merchandise through a platform christened as ‘Hall M.’ Now it is great to have the parent company, The Walt Disney Company, showcase exclusive content and experiences from the rest of its franchises,” said Abdulla Mahmood, Al Ahli Holding Group Marketing and International Business Director.


In addition, Marvel will continue its yearly “Hall M” tradition with Stephen Wacker, Marvel’s Vice President for Creative Development, taking the reins from CB Cebulski as its host.

“We are happy to partner with APCC as we bring our content and experiences closer to our fans. The unwavering support we receive from our fans serves as a strong pillar on why we remain the leader in content and entertainment,” said Veronica Cabalinan, The Walt Disney Company Philippines’ country manager.

Marvel fans whose hearts haven’t recovered from “Avengers: Infinity War” can soothe their feelings with surprises from films, TV, mobile games, and animation from Marvel that will be revealed at the recurring Hall M.
