San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2019: This year will see 'DC Super Hero Girls', 'Duck Tales' lead the charge of fan-favorite cartoon series
In addition, there are also a couple of panels that feature creators of cult cartoons and a panel that has been a fan-favorite for the last 17 years — 'The Worst Cartoons Ever!'
The San Diego Comic-Con has always been the one-stop shop for latest updates on movies, television, and comics. Much like last time, this year's convention, the 50th, has a slew of cartoons that promise to enthrall fans. In addition, there are also a couple of panels that feature creators of iconic cartoons and a panel that has been a fan-favorite for the last 17 years, "The Worst Cartoons Ever!" Here are all the top cartoons to look out for:
To start with, 'DC Super Hero Girls' makes an appearance at this year's Con. The cartoon captures the adventures of teenage versions of Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Bumblebee, Batgirl, Zatanna, and Green Lantern, who are students at Metropolis High School. The first season hit the small screens this March on Cartoon Network and the panel hosted will see a brand new episode screened to the audience followed by a Q&A with the creators at Room 6DE. The panel is slated between 12.30–1.30 pm on July 19.
Superhit series 'Duck Tales' is the other cartoon that is heading back to San Diego Comic-Con this year. The second season of the popular animated series was part of SDCC last year where fans were treated to the first look of the new season. This time around, the panel will feature voice talent Ben Schwartz, Bobby Moynihan, Kate Micucci, Paget Brewster, and producers Matt Youngbird and Frank Angones.
As reported by SDCC, Lin-Manuel Miranda, who voices Fenton/Gizmo in the series too will be part of the panel and there will be an autograph session after.
The DreamWorks Animation-produced 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' has been positively received by fans and ahead of the premiere of its third season, the animated series will have a panel with guests including executive producer Noelle Stevenson as well as voice actors Lauren Ash, Aimee Carrero, Karen Fukuhara, and Marcus Scribner. In addition, a 'She-Ra'- themed fashion show will also be held. The session is slated for Friday, July 19, at 10.15 am.
Another cartoon series to look out for is 'Miraculous Ladybug', that garnered positive acclaim when it debuted in 2015 and was also part of last year's convention. Expected to appear this year are the voice actors, Mela Lee, Keith Silverstein, Cristina Vox, and Andrew Russell. Will we see another new script being read? Fingers crossed. The panel will take place between 2.15-3.15 pm in Room 6A.
In addition to the animated series and cartoons that are slated to be part of SDCC, a panel titled 'Cartoon Legends Speak' will see creators of some cult-animated classics talk about their experience and memories of the cartoons. Those expected to make a visit include Floyd Norman ('Sleeping Beauty', 'Disney Legend'), Jane Baer ('Sleeping Beauty'), Kathy Zielinksi (animator of 'The Little Mermaid'), Nik Ranieri (animator of 'The Little Mermaid', 'The Princess and the Frog') and Dave Bossert (visual effects animator of 'The Lion King', 'The Little Mermaid') . The session will be moderated by Leslie Combemale from ASIFA: Hollywood.
The panel 'Worst Cartoons Ever!' has been a smash hit since its inception in the convention 17 years ago. Esteemed animation historian Jerry Beck will once again talk about the most terribly written, ugliest drawn and unintentionally funniest animated films ever made.
The time and date for these panels will be announced shortly. Watch this space for more updates.
