At the 2013 D23 Expo, an event held by Disney for fans, Steve Jobs and “other talented contributors to Disney history” will be honored with a Disney Legends award along with a ceremony that will take place on Saturday on August 10 in the Anaheim Convention Center. Disney Legends is a program that originally began 26 years ago that awarded people like Muppets creator Jim Henson, actor Robin Williams, and a number of other visionaries in fields such as animation and Imagineering. The following was said about the award:
"The Disney Legend Award is our highest and most coveted honor," said Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger. "It's reserved for the extraordinary visionaries and artists behind the Disney magic, the men and women who push the limits of innovation and creativity to ensure Disney remains truly special. The eight Legends we honor this year helped create some of our most beloved characters along with exciting new worlds and thrilling attractions. They also entertained millions of people and expanded our definition of what's possible. They are all indelible parts of our legacy, and we are proud to recognize them as true Disney Legends."
