So, as much as I have always loved comics, cartoons and everything related to the world of being a nerd, generally, I have never attended or paid much attention to the many, varying comic conventions that are so popular these days. Maybe because I haven’t lived in SOCAL that long, but I now realize how incredibly out of the loop I am. In researching what, in relation to animation, this year’s Comic-Con has to offer, I have been bowled over by all the cool exhibits, guests and products available to the 130,000 fans that managed to get tickets to this exclusive event. I went online to try to pick up a ticket for Sunday because I am off work, but apparently I need to locate the Doctor about traveling back in time, since they are all long sold-out.
Since The Hobbit films have a tremendous amount of VFX and CG animation in them, we occasionally discuss them on our site. The latest news to come from the film’s production team is a new title for the third and final chapter in the series. Instead of The Hobbit: There and Back Again as previously announced, it’s now going to be called The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
