Remember when we said that Wizard World would be making a stand during self-quarantine, social distancing, and stay-at-home orders during the Coronavirus pandemic. They just announced one of the first rounds of its kind. How will con-goers(convention-goers) take to this concept with many being unable to attend the multitude of conventions this year?
Wizard Entertainment, Inc. announces that “Wizard World Virtual Experiences” makes a “Supernatural” debut on Tuesday, March 31, when five stars of the long-running CW series take part in an interactive afternoon which includes a FREE live moderated video Q&A, plus one-on-one video chats, recorded videos and autographs. Mark Sheppard (“Crowley”), Emily Swallow (“Amara”), Ruth Connell (“Rowena”), Sebastian Roché (“Balthazar”) and Timothy Omundson (“Cain”) will attend via video beginning at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT, accessible to virtual attendees on their computer and mobile devices via a brand new site.
As part of the event, fans across the globe can:
- Submit questions via chat during the free 30-minute panel featuring all five standouts (open to everyone, no entry fee to watch or submit)
- Participate in a personal, exclusive one-minute live video chat with each celebrity (paid)
- Purchase a recorded video from any of the five, specifying the message if desired
- Purchase an autograph either on an 8”x10” photo or custom exclusive 11”x17” lithograph designed specifically for this event (if purchasing a live video chat, the item can be signed during the session)
Pricing begins at $40 for the individual chat, video, and autographs, and vary by celebrity, available on the Website. Fans can actually go there now and start making their requests for the private sessions and signings. Additional Virtual Experience dates and celebrity groups will be announced as they are formed.
