Of course Outlander is going to Comic-Con. Starz has already announced the eagerly anticipated fantasy series will have its world premiere screening at the San Diego fan event later this month. Now there are panel plans as well.
The Outlander panel will be on Friday, July 25 at 2:15 p.m. Confirmed attending: Showrunner Ronald D. Moore, author of the Outlander novels Diana Gabaldon, and the cast including Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Tobias Menzies, Graham McTavish, and Lotte Verbeek. (Oh, and I’m going to moderate.)
As fans of Gabaldon’s books know, Outlander is a romance-fantasy-historical-adventure tale following a married WWII combat nurse (Balfe) who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is forced to marry a young Scottish warrior (Heughan). But will Outlander become the next big fantasy hit? … Or the next Camelot? Here’s the most recent trailer:
