JUST ANNOUNCED: Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero returns to the 'Fest!
APPEARING ON SATURDAY ONLY:
Greg breaks from filming to say hello to WonderFest!
5/8/15: We're thrilled-- and just a little bit scared-- to announce the return of WonderFest alumni/The Walking Dead exec producer/director Greg Nicotero for 2015! Greg's been in super-high demand for the past five years due to his creative input and directorial duties on the most successful cable series of all time. He's already warned us that he cannot talk about the two Walking Dead shows currently in production—NO SPOILERS—but that doesn't mean there won't be LOTS to talk about!

Marta has appeared in dozens of TV shows and movies, such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Beach Blanket Bingo, Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mannix, Murphy Brown, and even the Lost in Space movie in 1998. Don't miss the chance to meet one of our nicest guests--and take advantage of our Lost in Space photo op.

Exciting Black Friday guest announcements.
We pulled some strings to get filmmaker Jamie Anderson!
11/28/14: Please welcome Jamie Anderson, who is coming in from England for his first WonderFest! Most WonderFesters know the name Gerry Anderson, creator of Thunderbirds, Supercar, Fireball XL-5, Space 1999 and Captain Scarlet. They are television adventure programs with a difference: Most starred marionettes and were filmed using brilliant miniatures.Sadly, Gerry died in 2012, but Jamie is using crowd-sourcing to develop some of his father's unproduced ideas, like Firestorm.
We're also welcoming back concept designer Eric Chu, who's working on Firestorm with Jamie and should have some great stories to tell..
And we're delighted that Kenny Palkow, the incredible master prop-maker, will be back as well. Kenny's been working on the new hit TV series The Flash!
These guests are joining previously announced Sara Karloff, Mark Cantrell, and Andy Pearson.
