Possible Announcement Date Released + New Universal Convention

Have you ever been to D23?  It’s the largest world gathering of Disney fans and it is Disney’s own version of Comic-Con where all the latest announcements for Disney movies, TV, parks, merch etc are released.  This is combined with special experiences, celebrity surprises, and shopping opportunities.

The Disney company has got so big that it needed a large outlet such as D23 to be created to allow it full media coverage of what it has coming soon.  But Disney isn’t the only media conglomerate that has been rapidly expanding…

Introducing Peacock Live, the very first NBC Universal fan experience that is going to give D23 a run for its money!  Using a similar format of exclusive experiences, celebrity appearances, and convention type panels, the folks at NBC Universal are bringing a whole host of different panels, with three that are set to “blow theme park fans minds”.

These three panels are:

Universal Parks & Resorts Global Preview – Peacock Live! guests will get an exclusive first-look at the exciting new experiences coming to the Universal Parks & Resorts theme parks around the world.

The Making of a Theme Park Attraction – How does a global blockbuster film franchise like “Jurassic World” become a mega-hit theme park thrill ride? Guests will have a chance to hear first-hand from the creative minds at Universal theme parks around the globe responsible for bringing favorite films from the silver screen to groundbreaking, next-generation thrill rides.

Halloween Horror Nights – Get insight from the global teams behind the world’s most successful Halloween event, and how they collaborate with filmmakers to bring iconic horror films to life as interactive, dimensional haunted houses and mazes.

Universal hasn’t said whether we will get an announcement for HHN30 at the panel but if D23 is anything to go by, where some park announcements from the 2019 event are plugging attractions that won’t be open for another 2 to 3 years, it is a sure-fire bet that something big and interesting will be announced at this new exclusive event!

Peacock Live! is a first-ever fan festival showcasing the best of NBCUniversal’s past, present and future. Taking place March 28-29 2020 on the legendary Universal Studios backlot, Peacock Live! will give fans insider access to the latest and greatest film, television, sports, lifestyle and theme park experiences only from NBCUniversal.

To get your tickets for this event go here now.

It will be cool if they use this new event to promote HHN and especially if it leads to more behind-the-scenes type info being displayed.  Are you excited for the event?  And will you be going?  Let us know in the comments!
