If you were at ShoreLeave this year or on social media shortly thereafter you were among the first to get the word on our newly announced guests, who have been invited to Farpoint 2019 in response to members’ requests for guests and content from the fantastic worlds of animation.
Legendary voice actors Maurice LaMarche and Rob Paulsen will be joining us at Farpoint 2019 this February! Maurice and Rob are known for their team up as “Pinky and The Brain” in the beloved series of the same name. Maurice is also known for his work as “Yosemite Sam” in the new LOONEY TUNES series, “Aiwei” in THE LEGEND OF KORRA, “Doctor Doom” in ULTIMATE SPIDER MAN and as “Calculon” and “Morbo” in FUTURAMA. He has provided multiple supporting voices for THE SIMPSONS, ADVENTURE TIME, RICK AND MORTY and many other classic animated series. Rob is known as “Yakko Warner” in the classic ANIMANIACS (coming in 2019 to Netflix!) and “Donatello” in TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and has worked on series as diverse as SAMURAI JACK, THE POWERPUFF GIRLS, THE FAIRLY ODDPARENTS, MILES FROM TOMORROWLAND, and BEN 10 OMNIVERSE. Both Rob and Maurice have spent time as themselves in front of the camera, too. Rob is the creator and host of the popular TALKIN’ TOONS web series where he talks with the most popular actors working in the animation industry today and both he and Maurice were featured in the documentary film I KNOW THAT VOICE, which continued as a series early in 2018 on most streaming services.
Maurice and Rob will join the iconic actor Wallace Shawn (STAR TREK DEEP SPACE NINE, THE PRINCESS BRIDE, TOY STORY, YOUNG SHELDON) in our 2019 celebrity guest lineup. All 3 have been invited to attend our Friday Cocktail Party/Opening Ceremony and will be meeting and signing for attendees on Saturday and Sunday. Convention members receive 1 complimentary signature from the celebrity guest of their choice on both Saturday and Sunday (weekend convention members thus receive 2 signatures total) on either the convention program book or an item the member brings from their personal collection to be signed.
Follow the links on our website Guests page to learn more about each of our celebrity guests. The guest lists for each program track are listed on the track’s page under Programming. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this February!
