San Diego Comic-Con 2015 is right around the corner and your favorite films and television series are starting to reveal their schedules for the biggest convention of the year.
Even if you won’t be in attendance, it’s good to know when to have your Twitter feeds open and start looking for YouTube videos of the panels.
We’ll be updating this article as more information comes in for SDCC panels. Until then, let’s talk about the panels!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
One of Disney’s big properties will be at SDCC in full swing this year. Seven Star Wars related panels will run on Friday, July 10th, including one for The Force Awakens.
No time has been announced but it will, of course, take place in Hall H. There’s also no word yet on special guests but we’re expecting director J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and at least a handful of stars.
There will also be Star Wars panels about publishing, collectibles, and Disney Infinity 3.0.
This will also be a prime time for the studio to discuss the larger DC Cinematic Universe and Justice League plans with the fans.
20th Century Fox
While the studio is keeping relatively mum about their SDCC plans, it would be a good time for them to have a big, final push for their next upcoming film, Fantastic Four, which comes out in August.
Undoubtedly there will also be news on X-Men: Apocalypse and hopefully some star appearances. It has been revealed that there will be a special advance screening of the X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut on Saturday at 8pm at the Reading Cinema. To get tickets, you have to buy the Blu-Ray at one of two locations: the Fox booth #4229 or the Nerd HQ/IGN lounge.
Marvel movies may not be in attendance but their TV shows sure will be! On Friday, the casts and producers of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel’s Agent Carter will be in Ballroom 20 from 3:00pm – 4:00pm.
That’s not all! On the following day, Saturday, July 11th, both casts will have a signing at the Marvel Booth (#2329); Agent Carter at 10am and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. at 2:30pm.
Cast attending for Carter include Hayley Atwell and James D’Arcy and for S.H.I.E.L.D, Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, Adrianne Palicki, Henry Simmons, and Luke Mitchell will be there, along with executive producers.
ABC has two big panels planned. For the fifth year in a row, their hit show, Once Upon a Time, will take over Ballroom 20 at 10am on Saturday, July 11th.
The panel will be hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown and include stars like: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Robert Carlyle, Rebecca Mader, and Sean Maguire, along with creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.
Later that day, there will be a panel for The Muppets in Room 6A at 3pm.
Both shows will also have signing sessions at the ABC Booth #4245. Once will be at 11:15am and Muppets will be at 1pm.
Game of Thrones
Provided you’re not still in shock over that season finale, head to Hall H on Friday, July 10th at 2:30pm for the Game of Thrones panel! Hosted by Seth Meyers, the panel is set to include: Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Natalie Dormer, Conleth Hill, Hannah Murray, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, and Maisie Williams. Although what everyone really wants to know is if Kit Harington will make a surprise appearance.
