YAY!! I'm planning to make the trip for my first time to the Chicago Con next year, wish I was able to attend this year but didnt know about it in time to take off. I'm super excited and actually started planning my trip already!!
Besides Lana (Regina) and Colin (Hook), Lee (Grumpy), Michael (Happy), Beverly (Granny), Chris (Smee), Gil (Eric), and Karen (Jasmine) are also doing the cons! They are all super fun, and usually sing on Friday and/or Saturday nights, so definitly good people to have.
So that's 5 Cons total next year (Vancouver, Chicago, Orlando, Whippany, and Burbank), and all 5 currently have the same cast members coming: Lana, Colin, Lee, Michael, Beverly, Chris, Karen, and Gil. Last year no con had less than 11 actors, so expect some more to be announced.
They announced that this will be the last year for the Vancouver Con. The Vancouver Con is unique in that it offers set visits. I'm not sure if this means anything regarding the show, but they haven't made any announcements like this for the other 4 conventions yet, so we'll have to see.
This is super speculative of me, but they still haven't chosen who will be with Lana in the gold morning panel (unless it will be Andrew, which would make sense seeing as the play mother and son, and they just forgot to add it to the website), but I'm guessing they may have Daniel Francis (Facilier) being with her, and they are waiting to announce until he is officially confirmed as her love interest in 712.
Michael (Happy) has dropped out of the Vancouver Con, due to accusations of wrong doing. It seems like Creation is not planning on getting a replacement for the Con, as they have mentioned they will give out a signed autograph of someone else not at the Con.
And Jared (Young Henry) is doing the Vancouver Con as well. Also announced, a screening of Knightfall (which airs on Friday), and artist Jason Palmer is going to be there selling art. He has done some really good Once fanart, check it out here:
More updates for the Vancouver Con: Gil (Eric) can't make it, so they got Jason Burkart (Little John) instead. That means the con lost eye candy and a good singer, but got an actor who has more appearances on Once (including an episode of Wonderland) instead. Guess that's a fair trade. Anyway, I hope if anyone is going they have a good time!
And Michael (Happy) is now not doing any of the Cons this year. Probably for the best, because regardless of whether he was guilty or not, I'm sure fans would have been verbally attacking him, and that wouldn't end well. It did say to stay tuned for people to be announced, so it seems we are at least getting a replacement for him, which is exciting!
