Those of you headed to this year’s San Diego Comic Con are in for a spooky treat: Laika Animation Studios will be coming to the convention to show off its latest film, ParaNorman, coming to theaters on August 17, 2012.
On Friday the 13th, a panel dedicated to ParaNorman will be held in Hall H featuring actors Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse; directors Chris Butler & Sam Fell; and Laika CEO and ParaNorman lead animator Travis Knight. Dave Karger will moderate.
Also on Friday the 13th, Brian McLean, ParaNorman’s head of RP (rapid prototyping), will participate in ASIFA-Hollywood's State of the Industry panel from 2:00-3:00 p.m.
ParaNorman walk-around characters will be deployed throughout the convention and will be available for photos. In addition, a ParaNorman-themed ice cream truck will be cruising around the Gaslamp district throughout the convention featuring special events and offering free ice cream and giveaways to the public.
