MUMBAI: Disney has launched its first ever official community for fans called D23 (www.Disney.com/D23).

Through D23, fans can go backstage and behind closed doors to get inside scoops from every part of Disney, while experiencing the nostalgia, adventure and fantasy of Disney.

“We have a fantastic legacy that started in 1923 and is based on timeless stories, beloved characters and unforgettable experiences, but it’s our fans that keep the spirit of Disney alive year after year, generation after generation. D23 is our way of saying ‘thank you’ and celebrating our fans, who bring the magic of Disney to life every day in every corner of the world,” said Disney president and CEO Bob Iger.

Today also marks the launch of D23’s new quarterly publication, Disney twenty-three; the D23 Web site at Disney.com/D23; and a new collectibles line, The Walt Disney Archives Collection, which was created specifically with D23 members in mind. D23 also will host special events for its members throughout the year, highlighted by the organization’s signature event, the D23 Expo, which will be held in Anaheim from 10-13 September.
