This year’s Comic-Con Prague promises bigger spaces and a star from the Terminator


The Prague pop culture festival Comic-Con Prague is celebrating its 5th birthday and invites you to a megalomaniacal spectacle. For fans, it adds a whole extra floor in the O2 universe or a statue of the Almighty Bowser built from LEGO bricks®. New guest actor names have also been added to the program.

“The fifth year, which will take place on the first weekend of April, deserves a huge portion of the new program. And related to that is a surprise in the form of an expansion of the premises of our popular event. And by a whole floor. We are adding over a thousand meters of attractive exhibitions of our partners, another main stage, hundreds of places to relax and dozens of hours of accompanying program. For the first time, Comic-Con Prague will also occupy the main hall A, around which the entire O2 universe was created.” beckons for news Pavel Rencinmarketing director of Active Radio, which is co-organizing the event.

A unique four-ton statue of the Almighty Bowser from the world of Super Mario will also contribute to the unique experience of the fans. It will be built from LEGO bricks®, of which there will be a respectable 663,900. The monumental work, measuring 4.3 meters, was created in 3,290 hours at the LEGO Group factory in Kladno. Not just a static piece, Bowser features movable arms, head and sound effects, making him an interactive sidekick for fans of all ages. “We are very happy that we managed to finish the statue. It is only possible this year when we are using Hall A for the first time, which is the only place that can accommodate this statue,” adds Renčín.

New film and series faces also appeared in the program of the event, among them Robert Patrick, who is clearly most famous for his role as the T-1000, the main villain in the film Terminator 2: Day of Reckoning. “Other names have been added to the guest list, of which we are duly proud. Whether it’s Paul McGillion, Dr. Carson Beckett from Stargate: Atlantis, or Brendan Wayne, who played the role of Dino Djarin in the award-winning Disney+ series The Mandalorian, which he will also reprise in the highly anticipated film. I also don’t want to forget the actor associated with all the episodes of Red Dwarf. That is, to Craig Charles. And last but not least is the unique Bobby Ewing from Dallas, aka Patrick Duffy.” calculates new names from the program Václav Pravdawho is the program director of the festival.

Česká spořitelna became the main partner of the festival this year, which is preparing a unique gaming zone and treasure hunt with tempting prizes for visitors. “We are very happy that we can celebrate the fifth year of the Comic-Con Prague festival as the main partner of the festival, and we are preparing an interactive gaming zone for all visitors in the hall of Česká spořitelna (hall A) with an area of ​​almost 350 m².

Whether it is a special performance by Dana Drábová, who can connect information about nuclear energy in the context of the world of comics, or a special exhibition by the Army of the Czech Republic. “This is our first time at Comic-Con and we hope to impress the visitors. They can look forward not only to military equipment and hi-tech equipment, but especially to meeting our paratroopers, pilots and flight instructors.” says the colonel Iva Bednářováhead of the personnel replenishment department of the Personnel Agency.
