Celebrating 25 Years of Fandom at Fan Expo 2019

Fan Expo will celebrate its 25th year in a big way when it takes over the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from August 22 to 25.

The event recently announced that John Travolta will make a rare convention appearance at the event. Travolta joins many fan favorites including Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Justice League) Rainn Wilson (The Office) and  Zachary Levi (Shazam! Chuck)

Fan Expo will also see the reunion of the casts of several beloved movies and TV shows including Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica, Smallville, The Goonies and Saved by the Bell. The reunion of Blade Runner stars Edward James Olmos and Sean Young is sure to be bittersweet following the recent death of Rutger Hauer.

Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), Tyler Hoechlin (Supergirl, Teen Wolf) and Mike Colter (Luke Cage) are also on the guest list.

Fans of the original Transformers cartoon will doubtlessly be excited to learn that Optimus Prime and Megatron themselves, Peter Cullen and Frank Welker, will be in attendance. Voice actors from popular anime, cartoons and video games including Teen Titans Go!, Red Dead Redemption, Pokemon, My Little Pony and more will also be there to sign autographs and have their photos taken with fans.

One of the main attractions at Fan Expo is the cosplayers. Cosplay legend Yaya Han will make a return to the event this year. She will be joined by Ivy Doomkitty, Vamp and more. The Canadian cosplay community will be represented by Karli Woods. Violet Love and Lee Howard.

And what would a comic book convention be without comic guests? Fan Expo will welcome many well-known comic creators including Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee and many, many more.

Fan Expo has a little something for everyone including the chance to get an early start on holiday shopping for the geeks and nerds on your list as well as cosplay contests. The artist alley offers the chance to check out up and coming artists who may well be the next Todd McFarlane or Jim Lee.

Fans of escape rooms will have the chance to take part in Harry Potter-themed escape rooms.

That’s just a small sampling of what’s happening at Fan Expo. For a complete run down of everything that will be happening at the MTCC from August 22 to 25, ticket prices and more head to the event’s website or check out their socials.
