If you’re still missing San Diego Comic-Con or bummed because you missed it, the next best thing, Fan Expo Canada, is taking place next weekend in Toronto.
Here’s a look at five of the Expo’s events we’re most looking forward to seeing.
Fan Expo Sports:The Ultimate Sports Celebrity Experience: For the first time Fan Expo Canada is marrying the worlds of pop culture and sports. Fans can attend photo and signing sessions, and Q&As with sporting stars like Bobby Orr, Roberto Alomar and Joe Montana.
Beverly Hills 901210 Reunion with Luke Perry and Jason Priestley: Dylan and Brandon come together again to discuss the best teen drama ever (in my humble opinion).
Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary: The Sixth Doctor of the series, Colin Baker, will be on hand to celebrate the series with fans. Plus, the March of the Daleks Guinness World Record attempt aims to make history with the largest gathering of Daleks in North America on Saturday, August 24 at 11:00am in the North Building in Room 104.
Stars Wars and Star Trek Stars Stars: Fan favorites from Star Wars and Star Trek will be on hand in Q&As, photo sessions and signings. From Zachary Quinto (Spock), Karl Urban (Bones) and George Takei (Star Trek) to Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and The Emperor (Ian McDiarmid) from Star Wars, it’s up to fans whether to embrace The Force or to “boldly go where no man has gone before.”
Star Wars Fans: It isn’t just Star Wars’ actors who will be on hand at Fan Expo Canada, 501st Legion of Stormtroopers kicks-off its 13th anniversary of the Canadian Garrison with the Grand March to the Grand Assembly.
