Just received this press release from Stan Lee’s folks. I’ll post it in its entirety below, but let me hit some of the highlights:
Melissa Joan Hart. And most of the rest of the cast of Sabrina the Teenage Witch for a reunion panel. (She seems like she would be fun to hang around with, doing nothing, lol…)
Scott Bakula and Donald Bellisario for a Quantum Leap panel. (Still a fan of Enterprise, btw. Highly underappreciated. And Bellisario? All the greats run through him.)
Katee Sackhoff will be leading the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel. (Battlestar Galactica was incredible, but I need to get to her run on The Flash.)
That is an incredible bunch of additions this close to the event (3 weeks).
I’m jazzed to get on a plane and get out there!
Lord, I hope I can snag a couple a minutes with at least one of these folks outside the autograph line, lol.
I can’t believe it, but I’m a lot more excited about these names than I was when I started writing this… that means something, right?
