Meet the voices behind Goofy and Max Goof at this exclusive and intimate evening event celebrating one of the most beloved 90's Disney movies and the release of A Goofy Movie Game. In addition to a live panel discussion and Q&A with Bill Farmer and Jason Marsden (the voices of Goofy and Max Goof), all event attendees will get a signed copy of A Goofy Movie Game and get to meet and take a picture with Bill and Jason. After the panel, play and watch A Goofy Movie with the film cast and the design team behind the game.


In addition to a live panel discussion and Q&A with Bill Farmer and Jason Marsden (the voices of Goofy and Max Goof), all event attendees will get a signed copy of A Goofy Movie Game, get to meet and take a picture with Bill and Jason, and receive two drink tickets (all worth over $200!). After the panel, play and watch A Goofy Movie with the film cast and the design team behind the game! All attendees, including children, must purchase a ticket for entry to the event. Drink tickets may be exchanged for soft drinks or alcoholic beverages for attendees 21+. *Note: Bill Farmer and Jason Marsden will only be signing the copy of A Goofy Movie Game received at the event. If you have other memorabilia you'd like autographed, they will both be in Funko Games Booth #1811 all day Saturday and Sunday during Exhibit Hall hours.

Tickets to the event are extremely limited, so attendees are encouraged to register quickly. The event is open to all attendees ages 6+, and tickets are $50 per person. Gen Con Indy convention badge is required.

That Goofy Movie event sold out almost instantly.

I'm looking forward to Gen Con. Of all of the post-COVID cons I attended last year, Gen Con was the closest to a 'normal' experience. While it's still not fully 'back' this year, it's going to be so much closer.

Ah, I was just sent an email about it yesterday from Funko Games about the event

That's our issue every year. But it is completely worth it. Gen Con is very different from SDCC, and is an amazing experience.

There is usually at least one weekend between SDCC and Gen Con. The one year they were scheduled to be consecutive weekends was 2020... and of course, neither of those shows happened (IRL).

Oh yeah, both cons are amazing, but also completely different. You have to do some prep for Gen Con before leaving for SDCC, so when you get back home there isn't a whole lot to do other than unpack, repack and hope to get a little rest in between.
