into a normal year, the Sunday of San Diego Comic-Con would be a day filled with exhaustion and over-stimulation. Your feet would be sore from walking up and down the massive convention hall, and your stomach would be struggling with four straight days of 12 dollar convention hall hot dogs and ungodly amounts of caffeine. So it’s somewhat strange to roll into Sunday with zero SDCC fatigue. Stranger still for us SDCC regulars to not be napping into the press room or desperately hunting for unused outlets to charge our phones.
So since we’re still riding high on SDCC energy, here are some of the Sunday panels you won’t want to miss:
First TMNT Film 30th Anniversary
(New Line Cinema)
Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of these heroes into a half shell with producer Kim Dawson, writer and ex-offico producer Bobby Herbeck, moderated by The Old Turtle Den’s creator Chris Castaneda. Watch it HERE.
Motherland: Fort Salem: A World of Magic, Action, and Intrigue
Join creator Eliot Laurence and cast members Taylor Hickson, Ashley Nicole Williams, Jessica Sutton, Demetria McKinney, Amalia Holm, and Lyne Renee for this look at the first season of the Freeform series, and what’s into store for season 2. Watch it HERE.
