High Fantasy

The words of Tolkien to the characters of G.R.R.M., and everything between

The mysterious orphan…the ancient wizard…the sassy princess… All they need is an enchanted sword and a wise cracking sidekick and we’ve got ourselves a trilogy. We’ll mine the deep, mythological roots of High Fantasy and explore the fairy tales and myths that inspire this genre. Not limited to a certain format, this track will cover works both written and filmed, with perhaps the occasional foray into video games, art and comics.

The High Fantasy track covers stories set in secondary worlds like Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones/ A Song of Ice and Fire, Wheel of Time, the Chronicles of Narnia, Stephen King’s Dark Tower, Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere and more. We focus on genre, rather than medium so expect to see panels digging deep into the historical and mythological references in the Silmarillion alongside panels exploring films like Willow or the Dark Crystal. We cover many classic stories you may have grown up with as well as new favorites.

No news at the moment.
