Fan Expo starts today in Toronto


Canada’s largest convention kicks off its 21st year today at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Fan Expo is North America’s third largest pop culture event behind San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con, drawing a crowds of nearly 130,000 with their over 100 exhibitors, family-friendly attractions, and celebrity guests.

The biggest buzz by far this year surrounds the Hogwarts Reunion event, which will see Harry Potter film stars Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, and the Phelps twins on stage together Saturday night. There’s also An Evening with the Doctor’s Companions starring Karen Gillan and Jenna Coleman. And if you’re not willing to pay extra for a guaranteed seat, you can always line up for the panels starring celebrity guests like Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal), Ming-Na Wen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), and more. There will also be comic book artists and authors, voice actors from video games, television, and films, cosplayers, and internet celebrities having photo-ops and autograph sessions.

Nerd Reactor will be there throughout the weekend to bring you coverage and interviews from the event. Keep you eyes peeled for updates, reviews, and more from Fan Expo!
