FOX, Fandango, and Disney — Oh my!
Exclusive to Outside Comic-Con, we’ve got the details on several brand take-overs happening next week!
FOX Broadcasting is taking over a parking lot at 450 2nd Ave., next to where the History Channel will have its Vikings Interactive Waterway.
FOX will be installing a mini-golf course, 3-D printing stations, and a movie/TV screening area holding 250 chairs. Just what they will be showing there remains to be seen! A local pizza truck will also provide food and there will be tables set up. The FOX lot will be open Thursday through Saturday, 12-8pm.
[UPDATE] it is FOX Animation Domination with Axe Cop and High School USA per their Facebook Page.
Fandango is rebranding a store at 226 5th Ave and turning it to a 30s-style movie theater lobby. There will be a concession stand with prize giveaways, and photo and video booths where you can re-enact your favorite movie scenes. The Fandango Experience will be open Thursday, 12-6pm, Friday & Saturday, 10am-6pm, and Sunday 10am-5pm.
Disney Interactive is taking over a store (a salon, in fact) at 343 4th Ave. to promote Disney INFINITY, the video game to be released in August. The store will have private an public events demonstrating the game, and Disney music and decor. The Disney Interactive site will be open Wednesday-Thursday, 8am-11pm (private events) & Friday-Saturday, 6pm-10pm (open to all).
Already known, but we’ve gotten a better picture of the Petco Park Interactive Zone: The zone will feature the Hello Kitty Music Wonderland interactive experience and pop-up shop, the Adult Swim funhouse, The Smurfs (making a repeat appearance), Fear.Net and Walking Dead Escape booths, a 5-hour Energy drink display, and several food trucks, including the Elder Scrolls Online Truck (Thursday only). A large DC Comics exhibit will be there all weekend, and will also have Jim Lee creating the final Kia Sorento car art on Wednesday at 2PM, to complete the Justice League custom cars.
Last but not least, it has been confirmed that NBC will once again be taking over the Tin Fish, and SyFy will bring back their Defiance Cafe at the Hard Rock Hotel.
