Fan Celebration Event Details
A fan celebration is taking place after the panels at 7:30 p.m. Pacific on Friday, July 22. This is an “in-world activation” hosted by AMC where fans can relive some “of the most iconic moments…from the past eleven seasons.”
There will be exclusive appearances at the event, along with set pieces and props. There will also be a “special message from cast and crew.”
TWD Last Mile Panel Details
There’s also going to be a panel for The Walking Dead: Last Mile’s interactive video game, hosted by Skybound Entertainment and Genvid Entertainment. This one is taking place on Friday, July 22 from 5:45-6:45 p.m. Pacific in Room 6BCF. According to SKNR.net, Yvette Nicole Brown and Felicia Day will co-moderate the panel and share behind-the-scenes looks at the game, along with “never before seen exclusive content.”
How to Watch Online for Live Updates
This is the first in-person San Diego Comic-Con event after a two-year hiatus. So while the panels were streamable online live in previous years, things are different this year.
As Decider reported, you won’t be able to stream any of the major panels online, including the two Walking Dead panels. (Marvel is the only exception.) However, there are quite a few places you can keep an eye on for live updates, so you’ll be among the first to know when a trailer is released.
For example, entertainment reporter Julian Cannon has been sharing interesting tweets already since arriving at Comic-Con. So you can expect Cannon to be tweeting as the panels take place.
You can also subscribe to our TWD email list here for updates.
Of course, the official Walking Dead AMC Twitter account will no doubt release the trailer online almost as soon as it’s shown.
