New York Comic-Con Reveals More Virtual Panels: Jurassic World, Locke & Key, And Lots Of Anime
There are plenty of Netflix panels coming to the upcoming virtual convention this October.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, most in-person conventions have been canceled. However, throughout 2020, we've seen a few successful virtual ones pop up in their place like FunimationCon, Comic-Con@Home, and two days of DC FanDome. New York Comic-Con will join the online convention trend with its event taking place October 8-11. In early September, NYCC revealed the first group of panels for the show, which included panels featuring Walking Dead, What We Do In The Shadows, and more. Now, a wave two of panels have been announced.
The next round of announcements features a few Netflix shows, some anime, and Locke & Key comics panels. Even though the new Netflix series debuts on September 18, there will be a Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous panel featuring Colin Trevorrow and Scott Kreamer along with other writers of the show. There is a chance we could get possible tidbits about the next Jurassic World film as well.
If you're into anime, there is a VIZ and Powerhouse animation panel about Seis Manos, which is available on Netflix. The panel will feature the creators and voice actors of the show and they reveal behind-the scenes secrets.
Also, there's a panel for the IDW comic book series Locke & Key. Gabriel Rodríguez and Joe Hill will discuss the upcoming wave of new books in the franchise. This will most likely include Pale Battalions along with the Sandman crossover.
