New Fan Event in Toronto: SuperFan ComicCon

If you’ve been reading our Facebook page, you may have noticed our announcement that some Sailor Moon talent will be appearing at SuperFan ComicCon in Toronto this year.

Sailor Moon fans will be able to see Katie Griffin, Susan Roman, Toby Proctor, John Stocker, and Linda Ballantyne. The complete lineup of guests is listed here.

This is the first time this convention is running, organized by Showcase Marketing Ltd. (who are better known for organizing home and garden shows). The convention will be held on Victoria Day weekend, May 17-19, 2014 at the Better Living Centre in Exhibition Place in Toronto. This will certainly make for a busy May for Toronto area anime fans this year! Especially seeing as Anime North is the following weekend.

Attractions at SuperFan ComicCon will include: live entertainment, photo ops, meet & greets with celebrity guests, game town, cosplay game show, local and international artists, seminars and panels, fashion contests, video gaming rooms, and hands on workshops on one of the stages.

Tickets are $20-$25 per day, $45 for the weekend, or $100 for the VIP package. Hours are 10am-7pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 10am-6pm on the holiday Monday. (VIPs get early access). Cosplay is being very encouraged on their website and Facebook page.

Interested in attending but not sure how to get there? Directions are listed here (transit and driving options).

More information and updates about SuperFan ComiCon will be available on their Facebook page and their website.

If you attend this or any other convention and would like to share pictures of Sailor Moon cosplayers with us, we’d love to see them on Facebook and/or Google+!

If you attend SuperFan ComicCon, we’d also love to hear if you enjoyed it as a Sailor Moon fan. Feel free to send us your comments on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

Megan Fox Wants to See a Live Action Sailor Moon Movie

Megan Fox as April O'Neil

Megan Fox, on the set of the latest live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie directed by Michael Bay, said in an interview that she would like to see a live-action Sailor Moon movie.

When asked to list possible cartoons she would like to see turned into live action movies, she responded with:

Gundam Wing,” … adding she’d love to see a Jurassic Park remake in the works. “Pacific Rim was sort of a Gundam Wing situation, but they should do it. What about Thundercats?”

Or maybe, she says, Sailor Moon.“That could feasibly be made into a live action movie,” mulls Fox. “I don’t know how many Americans were into that. I was into that, but I don’t know how huge it was here.”

When we shared this news on our Facebook page, fans immediately seemed upset and took this news to mean that Megan Fox wants to play the part of Sailor Moon if there is a live-action, English language film.

Although it is implied that Megan would like to be involved in such a project if it happens, I think we can all agree that she is not the right fit for any of the protagonists. The Sailor Senshi are a fair bit younger, and fans would generally prefer actresses more suitable for those roles (actresses who either are teens or who can convincingly play teens).

If Megan Fox does get involved, we think maybe a possible role as a villain might work … but we hope that regardless Michael Bay is not involved!

Also, as fans have pointed out – it seems that Megan Fox is unaware of the live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon series that aired in Japan. Perhaps her mention of live action Sailor Moonwill encourage fans to seek it out and see if they like it for themselves.
