Disney Found at Toronto’s Anime North Convention, Next Weekend

Among the thirty two-thousand people in attendance at last year’s Anime North, Canada’s top anime convention, were an assortment of Disney fans. While you’d expect the masterworks of Studio Ghibli to show up at the event, held at Toronto Congress Centre, many cosplays at the event represented the House of Mouse itself.

This year’s event runs from May 25 to 27 at the Toronto Congress Centre.

DisKingdom has identified all the Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, and Studio Ghibli events and panels at this year’s event. The article also includes select Disney and Marvel cosplay from 2017.
