SDCC 2012 Avatar Panel Lineup!

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 27, 2012, 1:34 PM

I'm happy to announce that Avatar Legacy Fan Panels are back for another year! And this time we're actually in the San Diego Convention Center proper! AND in a bigger room- Woo! AND we're on a day that doesn't conflict with the official Korra panel- Woo-Hoo! Not to mention we have an amazing line up of guests on our panel this year including Mr. Prince Zuko himself, Dante Basco!!! Super WOO-HOO! So be sure to join us on Saturday the 14th for our 3rd SDCC Avatar/Korra fan-panel!

:iconethereal-glutton: As for the many other fantastic Korra related events going on at SDCC this year, allow me to steal from my good friend Avatar_Mom and repost her rundown for you:

Thursday July 12th 10:00am - 11:00am: Creating Spaces for Diverse Characters and Representations: Presented by
Location: Room 23ABC

Racebending will once again host a panel that not only discusses the controversy surrounding the Last Airbender film, but also how the Last Airbender isn't the only example of "Racebending" in Hollywood. You can visit the good people of Racebending for more information as it becomes available.
Official write-up: Creators and artists are developing engrossing characters from underrepresented groups. Our panelists from different mediums will discuss their creative processes and how can fans support their diversity efforts! Featuring novelist and comic book writer Marjorie Liu (Astonishing X-Men), video game writer David Gaider (Dragon Age), comic book writer Brandon Thomas (Miranda Mercury), showrunner and screenwriter Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The Middleman), and writer Sarah Kuhn (One Con Glory), moderated by!

Friday July 13th 11:15am - 12:15pm: The Legend of Korra Comic-Con Panel
Location: Ballroom 20

Co-creators and executive producers Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, Joaquim Dos Santos (co-executive producer), Janet Varney (Korra), David Faustino (Mako), P.J. Byrne (Bolin), Seychelle Gabriel (Asami) and Andrea Romano (voice director).  The panel will include an in-depth discussion of Book 1 and a live performance by the voice actors.

Friday, July 13th - 12:30p - 1:30p: Avatar The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra cosplay gathering #1:
Location: Across Ballroom 20D (by the windows facing the ocean)

IF cosplayers are being forced by security to move from that location then it will be at the bottom of the big stairs located outdoors in the back of the convention center.

Saturday July 14th 11:00am - 12:00pm: Avatar the Last Airbender - Beginning and Beyond
Location: Room 28E

For over 5 years, the organizers of this fan panel have been bringing together both fans and professionals. Moderated by Avatar_Mom, this year's panel will include Bobby Rubio (Avatar the Last Airbender, Pixar, Alcatraz High), Freelance Concept Artist DJ Welch (Dark Kenjie), Kevin Coppa (Puppet Benders), and Actor/Voice Actor Dante Basco (Avatar the Last Airbender), artist Chifuyu Sasaki and colorist Naoko Kawano of Gurihiru, the team behind Dark Horse's ongoing Avatar graphic novels- And perhaps a few more surprise guests. If that isn't enough, there will be a cosplay contest to showcase the fandom's talented "fabric benders."

Saturday, July 14th 12.15 - 1:30: Avatar The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra cosplay gathering #2:
Location: Across Ballroom 20D (by the windows facing the ocean)

Again, IF cosplayers are being forced by security to move from that location then it will be at the bottom of the big stairs located outdoors in the back of the convention center.

:iconatallearthbender: Then finally, aTallearthbender shared this awesome information. Here's a snippet of his post for everyone:

"...In addition to all the exciting events surrounding Legend of Korra and Avatar The Last Airbender, please come out and support TEAM AVATAR, which consist of some of the biggest fans of the Avatar series. We are excited to be a part of such an amazing event and we hope that all of you wonderful, dedicated fans will join us at this year's Comic Con Masquerade!!!!!"
8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 14 in Ballroom 20 of the Convention Center
The event will run three hours, and doors will open at 7:45 p.m. for audience seating. As the line will start forming long before then, early arrival is suggested. Tickets for seating will be given out FREE to people in the line beginning at 2:00 PM. A ticket guarantees a seat, so you need not stay in line after you receive yours. After tickets have been distributed to the people in line, any that may remain from the 3,900 available will be given out at the Masquerade Desk. Should you be unable to obtain tickets there will also be overflow seating in the Sails Pavilion and in other ballrooms where the show will be projected on giant screens. Reserved seating is available for convention special guests...

That's the hap's for now. We'll be sure to share more info as we're made aware of it. Hope to see you all there!
