8) Star Trek
As it is the franchise’s landmark 50th anniversary, Star Trek is pretty much the headline event of SDCC this year. The premiere of the series’ latest movie Star Trek Beyond served as the grand opening of the convention (and thankfully it is getting good reviews).
Star Trek will also be all over the rest of the weekend, with multiple panels taking place. Expect some last minute promotion for Beyond, as well as hints at what is to come next in the franchise.
We should also get more info on Bryan Fuller’s new Star Trek TV series, which is due to beam up to our screens next year. While he’s at it, Fuller will also talk about his other upcoming show, American Gods, based on Neil Gaiman’s modern classic novel.
