Disney D23 Expo: The Pirate Fairy and The Dark World (2013)

August 9-10, 2013: 

The Disney D23 Expo is like a Comic Con exclusively for Disney projects. 

Day One: The Pirate Fairy

Tom Hiddleston was joined by Jenni Magee-Cook (producer), John Lassetter (COO of Disney-Pixar), Christina Hendrix (Zarina), and Peggy Holmes (director) for an exclusive look at The Pirate Fairy. Tom voices a young Captain Hook in the animated film. 

Tom Hiddleston, Christina Hendrix, and Peggy Holmes took part in a panel for the film. Tom describes his character as "educated and polite and energetic and charming and attentive... you realize that it's all an act. He's covering for his ruthless and cunning nature". (tbh this could describe just about every character he has played) Tom also mentioned that the Jungle Book was his favorite film and he used Bare Necessities for his audition at RADA so of course he delighted the audience by singing the chorus! 

Tom had a portrait session with Denise Truscello.

Day Two: The Dark World 

Tom was joined by Kevin Feige (Marvel President), Alan Taylor (Director), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), and Louis D'Esposito (Executive Producer) to discuss Thor: The Dark World. 

"Tom, please. I don't intend on making you kneel." On the red carpet. Tom Hiddleston talked about the physical challenges of performing stunts in a 25lb costume and Loki being able to show off his expertise on the battlefield.
