The summer issue of Disney twenty-three, the magazine of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, features a mega summer movie preview of Disney’s upcoming theatrical releases. “D23 gets readers back in the saddle with filmmakers Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski for Johnny Depp’s upcoming The Lone Ranger; Billy Crystal talks about scaring up big laughs for Monsters University; the masterminds behind Marvel’s newest film, Iron Man 3, offer an inside look at how they’re bringing Iron Man back to basics; and John Lasseter shows us how the upcoming animated film Disney’s Planes will soar.”
Disney twenty-three will be offered exclusively to D23 Gold Members who will continue to receive the magazine as a benefit of their membership. Disney twenty-three is also celebrating 60 years of Walt Disney Imagineering with a special commemorative back cover. This edition will also feature special segments including:
- “You Do What?” which will profile some of the most unusual jobs Imagineers have had over the years, from rock designer to castle architect.
- “Imagineering Fact? Or Fiction!” debunks some of the long-time myths and legends of the Disney Parks.
- “23 Imagineering Game Changers” and a salute from Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Tom Staggs to the thousands of creative individuals whose contributions have changed the way guests experience Disney around the world.

- An image of Walt and Lillian celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary just prior to the opening of Disneyland in “PHOTOfiles”
- “A Walk with Walt” takes readers back to 1946, the year after the end of WWII- a transitional one for Walt and his company
