Conan O’Brien and friends will be taking over Comic-Con once again and we have all the details.
For four days in July, San Diego will be the center of the entertainment world as Comic-Con once again takes center stage. Among the thousands of comic book, sci-fi, and movie fans will be Conan O’Brien yet again.
O’Brien and the rest of Team Coco have become a major presence at Comic-Con over the past few years. It was a brilliant move to get involved in the event considering the industry connections through WarnerMedia, owner of Conan network TBS. But beyond that, the crossover between O’Brien’s fans and Comic-Con’s target audience is undeniable.
Previous ConanCon’s have featured interviews with the cast of television shows and movies like Game of Thrones, Suicide Squad, and Aquaman. They have also given us some of the best cold opens and pretaped bits in Conan history.
So what should fans expect from ConanCon 2019? Whether you’re going to San Diego or you’ll be watching the special Conan episodes, here is a break down of everything coming from Team Coco.
Conan O’Brien has become an expert at navigating full cast interviews. Whether it is with the cast of Game of Thrones or Batman v. Superman, he knows how to get everyone involved and keep the conversation moving. It will be a little easier for O’Brien at Comic-Con given the talent he will be interviewing.
On Wednesday July 17, O’Brien will interview the cast of It: Chapter 2 . The movie is already set to have a major presence at Comic-Con and having the cast talk with Conan will only add to the sequel’s hype.
It’s not known exactly who from the cast will be included in the interview but fans should expect full attendance. The cast includes James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, and Isaiah Mustafa.
On Friday July 19, ConanCon shifts from movies to television. The cast of Veronica Mars will be the next to be interviewed. The fourth season of the show is coming to Hulu on July 26, following up on season three that ended in 2007 and a movie that was released in 2014.
The cast is led by Kristen Bell who was one of the first guests on “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend.” Other cast members include Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, and Percy Daggs III. New faces joining the show for season four include Dawnn Lewis, Patton Oswalt, and J.K. Simmons.
Things stay focused on streaming television on Saturday July 20 when O’Brien visits with the cast of Carnival Row. The show is a fantasy series coming to Amazon Prime on August 30. It is led by co-stars Cara Delevingne and Orlando Bloom.
Part of ConanCon’s annual event is the release of special edition Funko Pop figures. The collectibles feature Conan O’Brien as some of the most popular characters from movies, television, and video games.
Past editions have been inspired by Batman, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead. After teasing fans about this year’s models, Team Coco finally released a preview of what fans can expect from Funko Conan.
Looks like we’ve got Conan as Pennywise from It, Woody from Toy Story, Iron Man, and Jon Snow from Game of Thrones. Not a bad lineup at all. You can find out more on how to enter for a chance to win the figures by watching ConanCon and keeping up with the Instagram page.
