Amazon Reveals Plans for Panels, Offsites, More


You can now RSVP for the activation, though we don’t think these are limited — likely either just to save you a minute of signing up on-site, or to give them a headcount.


Amazon is going bigger than ever for San Diego Comic-Con 2019, with more panels than ever, and a massive offsite with fun activations and activities planned throughout the week.

As we previously revealed, Amazon Studios is back again with a 60,000 square foot space for an immersive offsite, to promote three of their series: The Expanse, Carnival Row, and The Boys. They’ll be back again at the corner of the MLK Promenade and 1st, the same space that was used for last year’s Jack Ryan offsite.

The Amazon Prime Video Experience will be open from Thursday, July 18 – Sunday, July 21 from 9AM-5PM daily, and will be visible throughout the Comic-Con campus area, thanks to its 40 foot tower adorned with giant LED screens playing scenes from The Boys, Carnival Row, and The Expanse. There will also be live, show-specific performances taking place atop the multi-level tower.

Once inside the offsite, attendees will receive collectible gold and silver coins which they can use to explore the activation. You’ll be able to cover up the crime scene of a superhero kidnapping at the Audio Visual shop where Hughie works on The Boys, or explore a Rocinante spaceship which will take adventure-seekers on a United Nations peacekeeping missions to a newly colonized planet from The Expanse. You’ll also step into the world of Carnival Row with The Forbidden Lounge, a neo-Victorian decorated hideaway venue with a special performance.

There will also be a tented awning to get out of the San Diego heat, refreshing beverages and food including Carl’s Jr.. There will also be a Cosplay Photography Center for those wishing to participate.

Fans will be treated to two premiere parties and screening during the convention, starting with The Boys. The party will kick off at 7PM on Friday, July 19, with a screening followed later at 9PM. It’s first come/first serve – but you can register for tickets now. Then, on Saturday, July 20, head back for the Carnival Row party and sneak peek, starting at 7:30PM, with a screening at 9PM. You can register for tickets now – but just like the other event, it’s first come/first serve, so plan to get there early. Both events are 21+.

Inside the convention center, fans can find panels for several series, including UndoneThe BoysCarnival RowThe Expanse, and The Man in the High Castle. Here is their panel schedule:

Thursday, July 18th
SERIES: Undone
ABOUT: From Raphael Bob-Waksberg & Kate Purdy, the acclaimed creators of BoJack Horseman, comes Undone, a groundbreaking and genre bending animated series, starring Rosa Salazar, about a young woman’s complex journey to unlock her past and solve the mystery of her father’s death.
WHERE: Indigo Ballroom, Hilton Bayfront
WHEN: Thursday, July 18 from 1:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. PT

ABOUT: Join executive producers Seth Rogen and Eric Kripke, along with series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, and Elisabeth Shue, with moderator Aisha Tyler, for a behind the scenes look at their upcoming series. Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super-powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven. The series premieres July 26th on Amazon Prime Video.
WHERE: Ballroom 20, San Diego Convention Center
WHEN: Friday, July 19 from 3 :30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. PT

SERIES: Carnival Row
ABOUT: Join stars Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, David Gyasi, Tamzin Merchant and executive producers Travis Beacham and Marc Guggenheim for a sneak peek and conversation about Carnival Row, moderated by Tim Kash. Set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man, Amazon Prime Video’s Carnival Row explores how this growing population struggles to coexist with humans — forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Orlando Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society.
WHERE: Ballroom 20, San Diego Convention Center
WHEN: Friday, July 19 from 4:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. PT
