The 2015 San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner and today they announced the Sunday Schedule of Events for July 12, 2015. There’s a nothing officially that falls under Disney umbrella but there’s still a few other goings-on that Disney fans might enjoy.
Sunday is usually family day at the con and a lot of the programming reflects that this year. There’s a Disney Pins panel once again this year that pin-collectors should enjoy plus there’s a fun family-centric panel about how parents can integrate their favorite fandoms into child-friendly fun for the whole family.
Below are details about some of the events with tangential Disney appeal. As always, all information is subject to change without notice. Find the full San Diego Comic Con schedule here: comiccon2015.sched.org.
