Pretty much. If they've attended at least the last 2 and live in the LA area, it's pretty much a given they'll be there.

even though i'm barely starting to find out that California as a whole, especially Southern California, and it seems the western region of the U.S., is the hardest area, region of the U.S. to get actors, celebs to attend conventions at.

Say, anybody need a room in the Hilton? Speak up, because I'm thinking of changing my plans in regards to lodging, like booking an Airbnb or latching onto someone else's room, because I like money and would like my deposit back unless I know for sure somebody is going to be around to split it.

Also, I think we should have a separate thread for lodging as we get closer.

There are just too many other hotels that are way cheaper and basically just as close as the Hilton. I'm just gonna book the Quality Inn. Even comes with free breakfast.

Yea, I know what ya mean. Part of me wants to book at the hilton (hasn't booked anywhere yet) because that is where a lot of "the action" happens, but I'm gonna be out there for 5 nights, and I could book a room right now at the quality inn for literally less than half the price, and when you add in a free breakfast, that's a savings of over $600, at least, for the trip.

You know what, that's a really good idea. I'll look into it. Still, point stands that we should have a separate thread for hotels. My nightmare is being left holding the bag for a room.

Edit: I'm booking the Express Inn a block away from the ACC. $100 a night after AAA discount, with free breakfast.

Somebody on reddit asked me where off-site folks might gather during/after con proceedings and I told him what it was like *before* (with Paseo Colorado) but that I didn't know for sure where we might all loiter now except maybe Downtown Disney.

Then I get to more sophisticated Google Maps poking around and find this reasonable Paseo substitute: https://anaheimgardenwalk.com/

They've got a bowling alley, an arcade, Bubba Gump, CPK, House of Blues, P.F. Chang's and such just a block off from the con

Yeah...

Anyway, I hope this announcement convinces some of the fence-sitters, and they are out there.

I don't know that Shankar deserves to be there, but I'll admit that he generated buzz for the brand...so yeah.

The rest of the list, I'm super excited for.

Definitely changes things up as far as typical Morphicon guests.

That's weird he would be invited considering Saban's involvement with the con now. I don't think they liked the film very much.

But they allowed it to remain online because they knew other people liked it.

Their main problem was the confusion with an official product, especially since it was already reported there would be a movie and so many people assumed POWER/RANGERS was the plan for it.

I'm pretty sure they did in fact have it taken down on most sites though. Hence my confusion. But, regardless, he's on the list so....whatever lol.

They initially tried to remove it entirely, then like I said decided to reach a compromise instead in no small part due to the massive reaction.

Ah, fair enough. I’ve never been able to get past the first few seconds without shutting it off, but as with anything else, I’m sure it has its fans.

Now that sounds like a plan. I'm off-site as well (well, OK, across the street) and the lobby of the Raffles Inn doesn't sound like prime destination material.

PF Chang -- isn't that where the Olympics are?
