Comic-Con® Prepares to Launch A New Event – A Theme Cruise
January 30, 2024
Comic-Con® is taking its popular convention onto the high seas, launching its first Comic-Con: The Cruise in 2025.
“You’ll have the opportunity to see a lot more things you want to see because there’s fewer people and also a more relaxed environment,” said Comic-Con spokesperson David Glanzer, describing some of the ways the cruise will be different from the traditional convention.
Celebrities already signed-up to attend include Star Trek legend George Takei, Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson, two-time Academy Award nominee Mary McDonnell, and Star Wars/Harry Potter/Willow star Warwick Davis.
Glanzer told ABC 10News that Comic-Con is frequently approached for brand partnerships, but they started seriously considering a cruise after hearing rave reviews about the annual Star Trek: The Cruise, produced by Entertainment Cruise Productions. They began having conversations and decided to move forward.
