Cartoon Network’s event schedule for the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con International convention has been released. The convention is the largest of its kind in North America for film, television and comics and is possibly also the largest animation convention in the United States. San Diego Comic Con 2016 will take place at the San Diego Convention Center between Thursday 21st July and Sunday 24th July. As usual, this year’s convention will be a crystal gem fusion of fun events and panels, both of which are full of sugar, spice and everything nice.
The convention will also be a time for the general public to find out more about the development and talent behind Cartoon Network’s animated shows. During the convention, there will be voice actor and show producer/writer/artist/creator panels for Steven Universe, We Bare Bears, The Powerpuff Girls and there will be even an Adventure Time Card Wars tournament to promote the new Adventure Time Card Wars Kingdom game.
The panel for Steven Universe will be a unique experience compared to an ordinary panel as it will be formatted as a musical performance, where members of the voice actor cast will sing and composers of the show will play many of the songs specially written for the show. There will also be world premiere exclusive sneak peek screenings for the new Ben 10 series, Steven Universe, We Bare Bears and The Powerpuff Girls as well as a costume ball/costume contest judged by a panel of Cartoon Network show creators – Kyle A. Carozza (Mighty Magiswords), Spencer Rothbell (Head of Story for Clarence and voice of Clarence) and Rebecca Sugar (Creator of Steven Universe).
