Yeah, at the time the suspicious was it was at Disney's doing, but when you see no panel there, no panel at Rhode Island Comic Con, no panel at SWCC in 2019, no panel at Ace, no panel at NYCC, there's definitely a trend there.  He's a super nice guy, but I think the panel/q&a thing gives him anxiety.

No panel listed for Tim Curry yet, but hopefully they add one. There's one free spot on the main stage on Sunday afternoon.

That would be nice... another big panel to anchor the show.

Karen Fukuhara and AJ Michalka just announced and they are doing a She-Ra panel. That takes the remaining Sunday Main Stage spot, so sadly, we will most likely not have a Tim Curry panel.

The spate of recent announcements helped bring this show to just about where it should be for this kind of year, IMO. Maybe they were waiting until the last minute in order to have a lower chance of cancellations. The only real problem (although it's a pretty glaring one) is that of the four featured celebrity guests, only one of the four has a panel (Levar Burton.) Two out of five if you count Jim Lee.

In fairness to them, elven though Tim Curry has done panels since his stroke, it’s obviously difficult for him (I saw him a few years ago at RICC).  So him not doing a panel is not a huge surprise.

I don’t blame him specifically, but it still doesn’t help ECCC’s lack of anchor panels.

What? He was one of the few main stage panels I was looking forward to seeing... :(

Same here. He was also literally the only featured celebrity guest to have a panel. This is exactly why this small of a lineup is problematic...this show had one anchor panel, and they just lost it. I remember a similar issue with San Francisco Comic Con a few years back...they had three guests, and two of them canceled. They were able to replace those two at the last minute which was good, but it did change the mood of the show. That said, replacement is better than no replacement so ReedPop needs to leverage its resources and add another guest of similar caliber with a panel.

They don’t make money directly from panels, so that’s really not a big priority fir them.  They’d be much more concerned if Hayden canceled.

Panels are the main reason I go to any con, and ECCC has had panels for nearly all main guests in the past. Having a lean guest selection is one thing, but if I can no longer count on them to have panels for most of those guests then ECCC has lost the majority of its appeal to me.

Ouch!  It’s a tough time. Kinda disappointed with ECCC but since it’s not the usual time of year we’ll just go and enjoy Seattle. Go Kraken!
