Two exclusive premium content showcases are waiting for those who’ll attend the AsiaPOP Comicon (APCC) Manila 2018, this July 27 to 29.
Courtesy of The Walt Disney Company, APCC Manila gives attendees access to the first-ever Hall D (D for Disney) in Asia, and the returning Hall M (M for Marvel).
"We have a lot of great surprises lined up for fans, both old and new ones,” said Abdulla Mahmood, Al Ahli Holding Group Marketing and International Business Director. “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.”
The arrival of the first-ever Hall D
A first in Asia, Hall D will showcase what to expect from The Walt Disney Company Philippines. Be among the first to watch special content from Walt Disney Animation Studios, plus join an exclusive session with Disney artist, Mark Henn. This will also be the launch of DisneyLife, an app to help fans be connected to and updated with the world of Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel through their smartphones.
“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. “With the exclusives we have prepared for APCC, we hope to engage our fans further and celebrate their love for all things Disney.”
Assemble at Hall M
Meanwhile, returning for the third time is the much-talked about Hall M by Marvel.
Already an APCC Manila tradition, fans may remember Hall M as the event which brought Filipino fans exclusive content of past blockbusters Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange.
Just last year, Hall M also gave us trailer sneak peeks of Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and Punisher TV Series.
With a slew of upcoming content following the confrontations in the recent Avengers: Infinity War, Hall M is bound to have more juicy surprises this year.
