A virtual San Diego Comic-Con is once again on the books as a precaution to keep the population safe during the ongoing pandemic.
This week the largest annual entertainment convention announced that SDCC 2021 will once again be virtual. Comic-Con will be a three day online event from July 23 to July 25.
“It is the policy of the organization to continue to closely monitor information from local and national healthcare officials as it pertains to the COVID-19 pandemic. Never could we have imagined what the world experienced in 2020 and continues to experience today,” said organizers in a statement. “While we are buoyed by the rollout of the vaccine and the growing number of individuals being inoculated, it appears that July will still be too early to safely hold an in-person event of the magnitude of Comic-Con.”
While there will be no in person event this July, the Comic-Con planners teased that they are planning an in-person convention with the highest hopes that it will be safe enough to take place this November in San Diego. The details are still being finalized and will likely be announced in the coming months. This is a lofty goal to be planning a large in person event that is only 9 months away.
Comic-Con International also announced that they are canceling all in-person events for this spring’s WonderCon 2021 in Anaheim. As with this years San Diego Comic-Con, all of WonderCon’s events will be virtual beginning March 26-27.
More information to come for this years virtual SDCC.
