HBO will be bringing two of its larger series to San Diego Comic-Con this year, the panels will be stocked with cast-favorites and crew members, and we may get a new trailer or two out of the event. HBO confirmed that both “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” will be hosting panels and autograph signing sessions at SDCC 2017, so fans should set a reminder to check social-media for the latest info and clips.
Hall H is always the home of the largest presentations at SDCC, and this year HBO will be hosting the “Game of Thrones” panel in the popular event-space. The panel will go live at 1:30 p.m local time on Friday, and will be moderated by a “special guest from Westeros”. Panelists include cast member Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Conleth Hill (Varys) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark). If you are attending the event, you can look for autograph signings starting at 3:30 p.m the same day.
On Saturday HBO will be hosting the “Westworld” panel, also in Hall H, at 4:15 p.m. local time. The panel will be moderated by internationally renowned vocal artist, beatboxer, musician and comedian Reggie Watts. Panelists for that event include the creators and showrunners of the sci-fi western, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and will include cast members Ben Barnes (Logan), Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Armistice), Ed Harris (Man in Black), Luke Hemsworth (Stubbs), James Marsden (Teddy), Thandie Newton (Maeve), Simon Quarterman (Lee Sizemore), Rodrigo Santoro (Hector), Angela Sarafyan (Clementine), Jimmi Simpson (William), Tessa Thompson (Charlotte), Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores), Shannon Woodward (Elsie) and Jeffrey Wright (Bernard/Arnold). The autograph signings for that series will begin at 5:45 p.m
The last we heard from “Game of Thrones” was when HBO released the war-themed trailer back in June. When the trailer was released, HBO teased the trailer stating, “It may be the first day of summer, but #WinterisHere on 7.16.” Only a few more weeks of waiting, then season 7 will be upon us.
