Instead of bringing Star Wars to Comic-Con, Disney and Lucasfilm are touting the anticipated reboot at the D23 Expo.

The bi-annual event, taking place Aug. 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center, will feature a strong Star Wars presence, with Disney planning events like Darth Vader: The Evolution of a Villain, showing the development of the villain, to Crash Course in the Fourse: Star Wars Saga 101.

Insiders say some Star Wars actors may be making appearances during the D23 Expo, confirming their participation in the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel trilogy — which is expected to hit theaters in 2015. (Filming is expected to begin in early 2014 in the U.K.)

Comic-Con, for what it's worth, takes place several weeks earlier in San Diego from July 17-21.
