Olivia Munn from G4’s Attack of the Show (and currently featured in Playboy magazine) has announced her schedule for Comic-Con International:
1:30 – 2:30pm: Attack Of The Show Panel. Last year we had to turn away
about a thousand people because the Comic-Con committee didn’t realize how many fans we’d have come out. But, this year, they’ve doubled our room. But make sure to get there early, so you’re not left out! I hear people squat in previous panels in the same room, so they’re guaranteed a seat.
5:15 – 6:15pm: Moderate Star Wars Panel. This room will fit 6-thousand people. So, hopefully you can get a seat. If not, G4 will be airing the entire panel before and after our live Comic-Con special. Click HERE and HERE to read more.
1 – 4 pm PST (4 to 7 p.m. EST): G4 Live coverage of Comic-Con. We will have a big stage like every year. Come find it and watch the show live- and maybe get on TV in the audience!
5:30 – 6:45 pm: The Attack Of The Show autograph signing.
8:30 – 9:30 pm: Atom Films and Lucas Arts panel. I’ll be premiering a special video I made for an Atom Films/Lucas Arts film contest. Come see it!
**Remember to bring any Playboys you want me to sign!! And the issue is the first 2-month issue, so it’ll be on stands if you need to get one while in San Diego.
Star WarsTM Comic-Con Spectacular Will Feature Exclusive Footage and Exciting Announcements from the LIVE Lucasfilm Presentation
Hosted by G4’s Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira, the Two-Hour Special Will Premiere on G4 Saturday, July 25 at 2pm ET/PT
LOS ANGELES – June 24, 2009 – Lucasfilm Ltd. and G4 are joining forces for a milestone in San Diego Comic-Con International’s 40-year history – the first-ever, exclusive television broadcast of a presentation from the massive pop culture convention. The Star Wars Spectacular! will air Saturday July 25th at 2:00pm ET/PT only on G4, and will feature never-before-seen footage, breaking news, surprise announcements, guest stars and more. In addition, G4 will present three hours of live coverage from the Comic-Con floor, beginning at 4:00pm ET/PT.
Traditionally, details surrounding Lucasfilm’s primary panel presentation are closely guarded secrets, with only 6,500 lucky on-site fans allowed access to the wealth of coveted information from a galaxy far, far away. But this year, G4 – the network that delivers all of the latest and greatest news on comic books, games, technology and pop culture – is offering TV viewers the one-of-a-kind opportunity to share the excitement with an exclusive broadcast of the panel. G4’s Attack of the Show hosts Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn will join Lucasfilm’s Steve Sansweet and a galaxy of guests from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and beyond – including supervising director Dave Filoni, and voice talent from the show – to provide an insider look at the Star Wars universe, with never-before-seen footage and a LIVE table read of an exclusive new Clone Wars script.
In addition, fans are invited to participate in the panel itself by submitting Clone Wars questions through a special G4 micro-site. Questions will be answered during the live presentation by Dave Filoni and other Clone Wars creatives!
2009’s Comic-Con International also marks another Lucasfilm milestone – the launch of the all-new Star Wars Stories Project. Fans of the Saga will have the unique opportunity to become a part of the Star Wars universe by contributing to Lucasfilm’s own historical archive. Soliciting movie memories and nostalgia, the Star Wars Stories Project invites fans to share their own tales of fandom through video testimonials. In addition to online submissions, fans will have the opportunity to record their stories at Lucasfilm’s pavilion on the Comic-Con floor.
Fans are invited to upload their fan stories at http://g4tv.com/comiccon
