Amazon’s plans for San Diego Comic-Con 2016 include panels and more….

 

Amazon today announced their full schedule for San Diego Comic-Con including offsite activations.  The panels include ones for both Thunderbirds Are Go and The Man in the High Castle and they will both have offsite events. More information including what to expect at the offsite events, as well as the panel and autograph session information is listed below from Amazon’s press release.

 

Amazon will host cast and creator panels for the most watched Amazon Original Series, The Man in the High Castle—the second year the series will be at Comic-Con, as well as the popular original kids series and reinvention of the classic Thunderbirds, Thunderbirds Are Go. Information on time and location are listed below.

 

In addition to panels and autograph signings, Amazon will give fans another opportunity to interact with both series at the Amazon Village. Taking over a corner of downtown San Diego directly across from the Convention Center, the Amazon Village will be an immersive experience that will feature an inside look at The Man in the High Castle and Thunderbirds Are Go through interactive experiences, shareable moments, and giveaways.

 

The Man in the High Castle tent within the Amazon Village will feature a pop-up museum that will bring fans inside the show to experience the Japanese Pacific States and the Greater Nazi Reich. Visitors will get a close look at re-creations of the sets, costumes and artifacts from the show, and have access to an exciting virtual reality challenge based on the series.

 

Separately within the Amazon Village, the Thunderbirds Are Go tent will give fans of all ages the chance to interact with life-sized characters from the series, have their photo taken in the cutting-edge Thunderbird 2 vehicle, and see how the live-action model elements of the series are created. Made by five-time Academy Award-winning New Zealand concept design and manufacturing facility Weta Workshop, the model that will be on display features a miniature of downtown San Diego.
