Earlier this week Adult Swim and Freeform announced their own NYCC lineup of events and panels, and today Amazon confirmed the exciting series and events that the company will be bringing to fans this year.
Amazon Prime Video’s lineup for New York Comic Con features the new original Prime Exclusive Series “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” the adaptation of “Lore” and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, as well as returning favorites like “The Man in the High Castle” and “The Tick”.
There will also be “Echo Escape,” what Amazon is calling ‘the world’s first escape experience powered by voice’. The interactive event will allow visitors to step into the world of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and join Alexa (the voice service that powers Amazon Echo), in a thrilling race against time where Amazon Echo is your key to solving puzzles, breaking codes, and saving the world. You can visit Echo Escape next to the Twitch main stage for your own chance to play. You can also join-in on the fun online on Twitch, as top gamers take on the challenge in a live stream event.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’s star and Executive Producer John Krasinski will be featured, along with cast and creators in panels, autograph signings and sneak peeks. There will also be exciting events for fans of “Lore” and “The Tick,” all for New York Comic Con attendees starting Thursday, October 5th through Sunday, October 8th.
Comic Con pass-holders will also get a chance to experience Dangerboat, an immersive explorable custom-designed space to promote the Amazon Prime Exclusive Series, The Tick. Dangerboat, the opinionated sidekick of The Tick’s Overkill, is a larger-than-life high-tech vessel that will be custom built on the New York Comic Con main convention floor. Guests will be treated to hidden surprises and giveaways within the ship itself, so be sure to swing by if you are going to the event. Dangerboat will come to life during this activation, chatting up guests as they explore the ship and gain personalized insights into the world of The Tick.
Amazon Prime Video will also create an experience based on the eerie, dark, and thought provoking true stories of Amazon Prime Exclusive Lore from noted Executive Producers Ben Silverman (The Office), Howard T. Owens (The Biggest Loser), Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Brett-Patrick Jenkins (Face Off), Glen Morgan (X-Files), Jon Halperin and Mark Mannucci (A Year in Space). The Lore experience will feature a museum of the occult and supernatural, showcasing Lore’s main storylines, introducing guests to the series in an immersive and socially sharable way. Three mysterious doors will lead guests into three very different but equally eerie experiences. Lore, based on the wildly popular podcast from creator and host Aaron Mahnke, explores a new origin theme in each of its six, hour-long, episodes. Lore premieres on Friday the 13th of October.
