Agreed.  The real tragedy is the original softback printing I had as a kid in the early 80's (that I got from my parents - maybe one of the first edition paperbacks) had the "soon to be a major motion picture DIRECTED BY GEORGE ROMERO."  Romero & King go way back and they had tried to make a film version of "The Stand" for maybe a decade and it just never happened.  I'm not sure a condensed feature film version of "The Stand" would work great (and that was the problem that torpedoed the film: they couldn't figure out how to either get it down to 2ish hours), but damn I would _LOVE_ to have seen a Romero-directed THE STAND.

And if you have the book that old, you have the original version, rather than the 'updated for the times' version King released later on...

Yeah, I got the 'updated' Author's Cut or whatever it was called too.  I'm a sucker that way (or at least I used to be - I haven't picked up a new King book in years).  IIRC the Extended version of "The Stand" came out when I was in HS.  I think it had the original cover, with the person in white w/a sword fighting a crow-like character in black who has an ax or something.  The paperback version I originally had (which was my mom's that I borrowed/stole) was a dusk/nighttime setting of a distant horizon, with a light in the foreground (like the lights of Vegas emanating from miles away in the Nevada desert), with a face on the horizon that's part man/part bird.

Realizing that this is a bit of a remote possibility: I would love to see a panel celebrating the 20th anniversary of the miniseries, The 10th Kingdom. Written by Simon Moore, this is a truly fun miniseries, that gets little attention.  John Larroquette, Kimberly Williams Paisley, Scott Cohen and so many more...including Anne Margaret as Cinderella.  Yes!
It is 2020, so...where's my flyin' car??!!

That would be amazing!

I know Hulu makes a splash at SDCC, so I hope they splash with something from The Orville. Their offsite last year was my favorite event.

Agreed! Season 3 is supposed to come out this fall, so it would be perfect timing!

It will be interesting to see how they handle Hulu and FX now that those brands are intertwined. I hope FX continues to have a strong presence with panels and off-sites.

I don't know if guests in announced waves have any weight given to them, but with Felicia Day being an announced guest in the announced waves, I think it would be cool if they were announcing a sequel to Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog.

It's early, I know, but it's fun to speculate to what could be at 2020 SDCC. What TV Shows / Movies do you think will be attending next year?

I'm hoping for:

Bill & Ted Face the Music

Stranger Things

10 year anniversary - Scott Pilgrim

MCU

Would love all of these.
