Big stars line up for Ar­maged­don

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Mug­gles, hob­bits and zom­bies don’t usu­ally get to­gether in one re­al­ity, but they’ll be lin­ing up with all kinds of other su­per­heroes, fan­tasy crea­tures and gamers when the Ar­maged­don Expo re­turns to Auck­land in Oc­to­ber.

Huge stars have al­ready been con­firmed, in­clud­ing Billy Boyd, Pip­pin from The Lord of the Rings; Evanna Lynch, Luna Love­g­ood from the Harry Pot­ter se­ries; David Mor­ris­sey, The Gover­nor from The Walk­ing Dead; and stars from Supernatural and the cur­rent se­ries of Doc­tor Who.

Comic fans will de­light with Kevin East­man, cocre­ator of the Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles, mak­ing an ap­pear­ance as well as Dan Slott, writer of Mar­vel comic Spi­der­man.

Along­side the big and small screen stars, Ar­maged­don Auck­land has comic, gam­ing and anime names a plenty.

All of the pop­u­lar events that take place at the show will be hap­pen­ing again this year.

The in­fa­mous Burn­ing Man will ex­plode on the Fri­day night with a fiery py­rotech­nic dis­play, and the all-ages mas­quer­ade ball on Sun­day night will be a stun­ning pa­rade of Cos­play out­fits and creative masks alike lead­ing up to the an­nounce­ment of the Tran­sTas­man Cos­play win­ner on Oc­to­ber 28.
