SW At The Great Allentown Comic Con

Posted By Mike on October 10, 2011

The upcoming Great Allentown Comic Con in Allentown, Pennsylvania looks to be Star Wars-heavy according to the press release sent over by the con's founder, Christopher Wertz:



STAR WARS "ATTACKS" THE GACC: CHEWBACCA, YODA, R2D2, AND REBEL LEGION TO ATTEND NOVEMBER 19-20th MEGA SHOW EVENT!

Actors Peter Mayhew and Tom Kane, Star Wars fan groups The Rebel and 501st Legions, and the R2D2 Builders of the Lehigh Valley - Join the Great Allentown Comic Con! November 19-20th Mega Show Guest Lineup.

The Great Allentown Comic Con presents the MEGA SHOW to be held November 19th and 20th with a science fiction theme featuring STAR WARS guests and groups. Fans are invited to come together to collect unopened STAR WARS toys for needy children and to bid high on original comic art in an auction fundraiser supporting an Epilepsy Awareness comic book.

Iconic Star Wars actor Peter Mayhew headlines a galactic sized group of Star Wars themed guests that includes Clone Wars voice actor Tom Kane in addition to an R2D2 droid unit, numerous Jedi, Imperial Storm Troopers, Bounty Hunters, and other fan favorite Star Wars characters of the 501st and Rebel Legions.

Peter Mayhew is best known for playing the Wookie Chewbacca in four of the major Star Wars films, a role the 7'2" English actor was born to play. In the years following the films, Mayhew has moved to the United States, become a citizen, and most recently begun writing children's novels with his wife Angie Mayhew.

Tom Kane has spent nearly three decades doing voice work, often times as the narrating voice that helps propel a story and draw listeners into fantastical worlds. Currently he plays the part of Yoda on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, while also providing the narrative voice for each episode. In addition to Star Wars, Kane has also worked on the popular children's cartoon The Powerpuff Girls and lent his voice to the 2011 movie, The Smurfs as the "Narrator Smurf."

Both the Garrison Carida® and the Rebel Legion will be at the show Saturday November 19th ONLY, and holding a special Star Wars themed trivia contest. Sunday see Peter Mayhew and Tom Kane discussing their experiences on Star Wars films and cartoons, so be sure to plan accordingly.
Additional guests are also being planned, and should be announced in coming weeks. For more information visit us online at allentowncomiccon.com.

Christopher D. Wertz, Show Founder and Promoter says, "We are pleased to announce that Star Wars icons such as Peter Mayhew and Tom Kane, will be joined by members of The Rebel Legion's Echo Base and Garrison Carida® of the 501st Legion at the November 2011 Mega Show of the Lehigh Valley's largest pop culture extravaganza, The Great Allentown Comic Con! After the great response fans had for the 501st at our first show in 2010, it was an easy decision to expand and include the 'good-guys' for our first multi-day extravaganza event."
