Serving as one of the concluding reports in HBB Reviews's coverage of Dragon-Con 2018, this report will serve as an opus summary of the key events that took place this year at Dragon-Con 2018. It is divided into sections in order to provide a more organized and better flow of events. Once again, thanks to Dragon-Con Media Relations for providing me with a complementary press pass for the purposes of coverage.
Friday (August 31, 2018):
Christopher Paolini Interview (EXCLUSIVE):
"After receiving a badge in the Dragon-Con Media Relations Room...I went straight to my interview with New York Times bestselling author of the Inheritance Cycle, Christopher Paolini....It was certainly a daunting task and I found myself rather nervous and stuttering. However, thanks to Paolini's calm and pleasant demeanor, I found myself growing more confident throughout the 15-minute interview....It was a great pleasure to meet the man behind four of some of the best YA fantasy works available at the moment. Read the full interview here."
Dwarves of Middle-Earth Panel:
"Following my exploration of the vendor’s hall, I briefly traveled to the Marriott Marquis where the first panel for me, “Dwarves of Middle-Earth,” was taking place. I decided to arrive forty-five minutes early in order to secure a decent seat. However, I was shocked to see the staggering line that already existed when I arrived forty-five minutes early. When asked, these fans reportedly spent two hours already waiting for the panel just to see two supporting actors from the film in person. The highlights from the “Dwarves of Middle-Earth” panel, starring Dean O’Garman and Graham McTavish can be found here."
