The real life Aladdin is coming to Calgary this spring

Via Disney

Well, rub a gravy boat and call us Genie! The 2020 Calgary Comic Expo is honestly the gift that just keeps giving. Canadian heartthrob Mena Massoud from the live-action remake of Disney’s Aladdin is next to fly into Calgary on what we are just going to assume will be a magic carpet.

Other celebrity guests include Brendan Fraser from the Mummy, George Takei from Star Trek, Giancarlo Esposito from The Mandalorian and Breaking Bad, Chandler Riggs from The Walking Dead, and John Leguizamo from John Wick and Ice Age.

This year is also shaping up to be quite the reunion special. Not only will we see the cast of The Office who was announced just last week, but an unexpected journey has led the “filthy hobbitses” from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of The Rings right here to Calgs.

Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan were the very first announced and will also host a panel, which has us and other fans of the series in an absolute tizzy. Oops, our nerdy side is showing.

The rest of 2020’s celebrity guests will be announced closer to the event, which will take place from April 23rd to the 26th. You can already get your tickets on their website here!

You can bet you’ll see us there, Calgary!


When: Thursday, April 23-26th
Where: Stampede Park,  650 25 Ave SE, Calgary
Time: See times here
Cost: $10+
