Island Con 2018 takes place at Cowes Enterprise College, on October 20th and 21st.
Already announced, in a massive addition to the Island Con lineup for 2018 is Sean Astin, who made his name in the Goonies, before going on to star alongside Elijah Wood in Lord of the Rings as Samwise Gamgee. More recently Sean has been starring in the hit Netflix series Stranger Things.
Another ‘star of the Shire’ will be appearing at Island Con in 2018, as the 7th incarnation of Doctor Who and Hobbit star Sylvester McCoy will also be appearing, offering up the chance to hear from two big stars of Tolkien's big screen epics - Sean Astin and Sylvester.
And those who attended the 2017 Island Con might have picked up on some clues given by Brian O’Halloran, who gave away a little bit of information - leading to speculation that Jason Mewes would be attending in 2018. We can finally announce that the Jay in Jay and Silent Bob WILL indeed be attending Island Con this year - and we are very excited to be able to welcome an icon of TV and film, including such films as Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob and Dogma.
Jason will join his co-star from Jay and Silent Bob, Shannon Elizabeth, who is also known for her role as Nadia in the American Pie series of films.
And in an exciting link to Shannon Elizabeth, Chris Owen of American Pie fame will also be at Island Con. Chris, mainly known for his role as Chuck Sherman, a.k.a The Sherminator in the franchise, will join his co-star in the series, Shannon, which is sure to make for an interesting combination. As well as being a mainstay of the American Pie series, Chris, who was born in 1980, has also appeared in Hidalgo (2004), Mist (2007) and Bachelors (2015), in a career that has lasted more than 25 years.
Speaking of lasting 25 years, 2018 is the 25th anniversary of the original Power Rangers hitting our screens, and to celebrate we are bringing along some of the popular characters from different variants of the hit TV show. Jason Faunt, Blake Foster, Walter Jones and Erin Cahill will be attending - alongside Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy, who played Bulk and Skull.
Island Con is a celebration of pop culture with so much more going on including a national exhibitors area in Trader's Bay, artists from the UK & EU, general entertainment and a heavy focus on cosplay from all types of fandoms.
