From Aug. 31 until Sept. 3, Fan Expo Canada is inviting all expo-nauts to nerd out with their comic book comrades and heroes of horror at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Tickets are now available at fanexpocanada/tickets.
Among this year's legendary group of attendees is the previously announced cast of "Rocky Horror Picture Show"; crossbow-wielding zombie slayer Norman Reedus; worrisome protocol droid Anthony Daniels; shark-hunter turned Hollywood icon Richard Dreyfuss; Queen of the Seven Kingdoms Lena Headey; Canadian treasure Victor Garber; and Kathleen Turner, whose sultry voice gave life to Toontown's infamous Jessica Rabbit. Also in attendance will be the cast of last summer's runaway hit "Stranger Things," including Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin as well as the "Buffyverse's" James Marsters and Anthony Head, who will lay their stakes into the star-studded event.
