If you’re anything like us, you probably already have your Comic-Con schedule started (and if you don’t — why not?!). Especially with panels, though, it’s helpful to know what else is in the panel room, as sure, your panel might be a walk-in by itself — but what if something major is right after it?
Without further ado, let’s look at the major panel rooms (Hall H, Ballroom 20, Indigo Ballroom, 6BCF, and 6A) for broken down by day and timeslot:
6BCF – (*Seats 2,160)
10:15AM-11:15AM: Miraculous Ladybug and ZAG Animation– Jeremy Zag (director, writer, composer, CEO) joins voice talent Cristina Vee (as “Marinette/Ladybug”), Mela Lee (as “Tikki”), Andrew Russel (as “Luka”), Bryce Papenbrook (as “Adrien/Cat Noir”), Selah Victor (as “Chloe Bourgeois”), and Carrie Keranen (as “Alya), along with voice director Ezra Weisz, producer Aton Soumache, and singers Lou Jean and Drew Ryan Scott to discuss the upcoming summer film Miraculous Ladybug & Cat Noir, The Movie. Jeremy discusses the continuous expansion of the Miraculous World, new animation projects in development, and franchise updates in gaming and manga.
[CANCELLED] 11:30AM-12:30PM: Sesame Steet Special Premiere– Be the first to experience Sesame Street’s new entertaining and informative special starring your favorite Muppets of Sesame Street, who, with the help of celebrity guests, journey out into the world with a mission to help others and give back to communities. The screening will be followed by a panel with Cookie Monster, Elmo, and Andrew Moriarty (coordinating producer/writer).
12:45PM-2:45PM: The Little Mermaid Singalong– You’re invited to raise your voice and be “a part of our world” when The Little Mermaid, visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall’s live-action reimagining of Disney’s Oscar-winning animated musical classic, screens at Comic-Con as a special sing-along edition! The Little Mermaid is the beloved story of Ariel (Halle Bailey), a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest daughter of King Triton (Oscar winner Javier Bardem) and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric (Jonah Hauer-King). While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula (two-time Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy), which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life—and her father’s crown—in jeopardy. Sing along to the music from multiple Academy Award winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman, who together won two Oscars for the music in the animated The Little Mermaid, and new lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Come for the film and songs, and stay for whozits and whatzits galore!
3:00PM-4:00PM: Buffy: Once More with Feeling: An Interactive Whedonverse Musical– Let’s end this show with a bang!

Many say this is the finest, funniest, most ingenious episode ever to come out of the Buffyverse. But remember, the best part of the show is up to you! This episode was made for talkin’—back, that is—and singing and shouting and dancing in the aisles, with or without your dry cleaning! Audience participation: it isn’t just for Rocky Horror and mob riots anymore. Plus: a surprise guest!
