Two exclusive premium content showcases are definitely better than one. Content and entertainment giant, The Walt Disney Company, brings AsiaPOP Comicon exclusives to its fans on July 27 to 29! From access to the first-ever ‘Hall D’ in Asia and ‘Hall M’, an immersive experience at the Marvel booth, to the latest in merchandise and collectibles, fans are definitely in for a treat with a celebration of their love for Disney and Marvel!
“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.
The Arrival of the first-ever ‘Hall D’ in Asia
A first in Asia, ‘Hall D’ will showcase what’s now and what’s to come 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 legendary Disney artist, Mark Henn. Fans will continue to be connected to their favorite Disney movies, shows, and music as they know more about DisneyLife, the world of Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel in one app.
‘Hall D’ will be complemented with the Marvel booth, which plans to provide an immersive experience to Marvel fans. Step into the quantum realm as this booth transports fans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe – from interacting with life-size statues of well-loved super heroes to bringing home Marvel merchandise and collectibles.
“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’
Returning for the third time, is the much-talked about and the much-raved about ‘Hall M,’ a Marvel exclusive showcase of content.
Already an APCC Manila tradition, fans may remember ‘Hall M’ as the amazing event which brought to Filipino fans a rich assortment of exclusive content from Marvel’s many entertainment fields, including past blockbusters such as Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange.
Just last year, ‘Hall M’ gave us clips and trailers from Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and Marvel’s Punisher TV Series.
With a slew of upcoming content following the epic confrontations in the recent Avengers: Infinity War, ‘Hall M’ is bound to have juicy surprises up its long, well-guarded sleeves this year across its different platforms that include films, TV, mobile games, and animation.
Another first for APCC
APCC Manila is the first and only pop-culture convention in Asia to have Studios content showcase from leading Hollywood Studios. In 2016 ‘Hall M,’ a Marvel showcase was launched to an overwhelming response. This year ‘Hall D’ will be launched in Asia making it three years in a row to launch an exclusive platform
“It is an honor for us to have the world’s leading studios showcase exclusive content at APCC Manila and this just reaffirms the commitment of our team to continuously over deliver with talent and exclusive content while building on the trust and partnerships with various studios by providing them with a perfect platform to connect with their fans in the region” said Mahmood on the growing global Hollywood studio alliances.
