For the fourth year in a row, creative Harry Potter fandomers will lead a discussion at Comic Con. This year, with the panel coming barely a week after the release of the final Harry Potter film and a few weeks after the announcement about what Pottermore actually is, it marks a time of transition for the fans, and for everyone who's grown up with and lived with the Harry Potter books, films and magic for one year, five years, or even a dozen years.
Topics will include
continuing involvement in fannish activities online and in person,
upcoming events, projects and opportunities for activism, thoughts on
the Wizarding World of Harry Potter one year on, fannish creativity on
stage, in writing, in art and in vids and fanfilms, and more!
Panelists include (alphabetically):
Melissa Anelli (The-Leaky-Cauldron.org, Harry - A History)
Kathryn Mudgway (International Quidditch Assocation)
Joey Richter ("Ron" in A Very Potter Musical/Sequel; Me & My Dick, Starship)
Andrew Sims (Mugglenet, Hypable.com)
Andrew Slack (TheHPAlliance.org, Imagine Better)
Heidi Tandy (FictionAlley.org, Ascendio2012.org/HPEF) is the moderator.
The panel will take place on Thursday, July 21 at 5 PM in Room: 25ABC;
