Last night Disney held a special event at Banking Hall in London to celebrate its forthcoming centenary under the banner of 100 Years of Wonder and we were on hand to find out what Mickey and his friends have lined up.

Hosted by Emma Willis and showcasing the best of upcoming Disney Plus offerings and Disneyland Paris celebrations – alongside a presentation of the entire "Part Of Your World" musical number performed by Halle Bailey from the upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid just for the fans in attendance – the evening also saw the announcement of a plethora of UK-based events throughout 2023.
