NEWS - Fan Expo 2017: What VO Fans Can Expect This Year
Reported by NCZ on Thu Aug 17 2017

Two weeks from this day, Fan Expo Canada will take place once again in Toronto, and just as usual, BTVA will be heading down to provide press coverage of the event. Here is the rundown of what voice acting fans can expect this Labour Day weekend, and what we'll bring to you as much as possible.


The following Voice Acting guests will be in attendance this year. Most will be holding their own panels throughout the event, and all will conduct their own autograph sessions and photo ops.



Friday will be a stacked day for those hoping to attend voice actor panels. Throughout the weekend, there will also be non-directly-VO related events, such as anime screenings (including Otaku no Video, One Piece Film Z, Evangelion 1.1, and Sgt. Frog), and an all-day Retro Arcade featuring numerous classic video games. Possibly most unique of all, there will be a live script reading of the 1987 film The Princess Bride, starring Troy Baker, Jennifer Hale, David Hayter, and Nolan North.

The voiceover panel schedule is as follows.

Damn it, if I knew so many VA's were going to be there I would've bought a ticket for this year (I've never been to FanExpo and only one Anime North which was in May)
