If you were wondering whether The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 was going to end up in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year, you can stop wondering now. It’s happening.
Its panel will be Thursday, July 9, from noon to 1:15 p.m. It will share the time with The Last Witch Hunter starring Vin Diesel, with both panels moderated by Conan O’Brien, who will be in San Diego to broadcast his TBS late-night show Conan live from the mega-convention to air Wednesday through Saturday that week.
Lionsgate says that both panels, set for Thursday, July 9 from noon-1:15 PM, will feature never-before-seen footage from the each movie, plus question and answer sessions with the stars and filmmakers. There’s no word yet on which stars will be on the panels, but we think Vin Diesel will be making an appearance as he is a Comic-Con regular. His movie has an October 23 release date.
Last year at Comic-Con, Lionsgate passed on Hall H to promote Mockingjay – Part 1 prior to its release. Instead, they set up a big fan experience in the Gaslamp District just north of the San Diego Convention Center, inside the Hard Rock Hotel.
