D23 remembers former Disney Chairman of the Board Ray Watson who passed away on October 20th. Here's the statement from Disney CEO Bob Iger:
On behalf of everyone at Disney, we mourn the loss of Disney Legend Ray Watson, a dear friend and trusted advisor, Ray’s indelible contributions to Disney’s great legacy began when Walt Disney himself called on Ray for his wise counsel on early plans for EPCOT. Throughout his 30-year tenure as a member of the Disney Board of Directors, Ray exhibited incredible leadership, sound judgment, and grace under pressure, particularly during the difficult period in the mid-1980′s when he served as our Chairman of the Board. With deep respect for Ray and his tireless work and great love for Disney, we extend our condolences to his wonderful family.

The new D23 Armchair Archivist is now available:
We hear about how the game developers worked with the Walt Disney Archives to research beloved Disney characters and attractions in order to give them new life in the new videogame musical, Epic Mickey: The Power of Two. In taking a look at the history of Oswald, who is half of the “Power of Two” (along with Mickey Mouse) in the game, we’ll check out artwork, from the Walt Disney Archives, that is being incorporated into the game, and say “hello” again to lost Disney characters such as the Gremlins and Mad Doctor. It’s a grand reintroduction for some of our animation favorites into the modern videogame realm to salute Oswald’s 85th anniversary. Those of you with a sharp eye… be sure to catch all the Disney references throughout the game.
