Fan Expo New Orleans, formerly Wizard World New Orleans, makes its return to the Ernest Morial Convention Center January 6-8, 2023. The show returned from the worldwide pandemic just last year and has emerged victorious with an all-star studded lineup ready to appease even the weariest of fans. Headlining this year’s convention are stars from Stranger Things (Joseph Quinn, Grace Van Dien) Star Trek (Anson Mount, Ethan Peck) and voice actors (Charles Martinet, David Hayter) and Star Wars (Ashley Eckstein, James Arnold Taylor).
From celebrity Q&As to industry, cosplay, gaming, anime and entertaining, informative sessions from all areas of pop culture, FAN EXPO New Orleans presents its collection of nearly 150 programing panels and meetups during the event, Friday through Sunday, January 6-8 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. There’s truly something for every fan and every taste every hour of the show into the evening throughout all three days of the convention, right until Sunday’s 5 p.m. finish.
This year Fandom Appearances/The Weekend Geeks will be presenting two panels at the convention; “A Star Trek Retrospective” on Saturday, January 7th at 10:45am and “Is The Orville The Greatest Sci-Fi Show On Television?” on Sunday at 10:45am. Both panels will be held in Theater 5 (Room 298). I will be there along with my co-moderator Eric Leblanc. On Sunday, Owen Cotter of www.scifiction.com will join us to celebrate The Orville.
