  • Owen Wilson, who recently starred as Mobius in Loki, will appear at Celebrity Fan Fest on July 31 and August 1.
The first in-person, comic-con-style convention of the year comes by way of PMX Events, the production company that runs Celebrity Fan Fest.

With the word “celebrity” in its title, the focus of the con, which started in 2018, remains on delivering an impressive lineup of stars.

This year, the Fan Fest welcomes Owen Wilson (TV’s Loki), Ewan McGregor (Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace) and Hayden Christensen (Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones). Other celebs from superhero franchises will also be on hand, including Ray Fisher (Zack Snyder’s Justice League), Charlie Cox (TV’s Daredevil) and Krysten Ritter (TV’s Jessica Jones).

Along with special guests, the Fan Fest includes a Gotham Car Show featuring original and replica Hollywood vehicles such as the 1966 and 1989 Batmobiles, the ECTO-1 from Ghostbusters and the DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future.

“It can’t just be about what big stars you can bring,” PMX Events President Bob Wills told the Current in 2019. “It’s about bringing in other interests that people have, so you can make a more developed show.”

$99.99-$179.99, 10:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Friday-Monday, 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday July 30-August 8, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, 17000 I-10 West, (210) 697-5050, pmxevents.com.
