Sci-fi and comics fans trooped to the SMX Convention Center last July 29 for the Netflix AsiaPop Comicon Manila 2018. This year’s Comicon event is special for us Netflix Stream Team members because our favourite Netflix shows and characters are featured in the event. As avid Netflix viewers my family and I have our own favourites in the Netflix showcase of shows. This is why we were all excited to join the event and check out the special perks that Netflix has to offer.
One of the advantages of being in a Netflix Stream Team is you get access to unique Netflix experiences. Aside from a whole array of shows that fit everyone’s viewing pleasure, Netflix is also set to give us the best of the best experience even at the Comicon. I went to the event with my daughter and brother who is also a huge Marvel and comic fan. My husband wanted to come too but he had something urgent to attend to. It was just too bad because he would’ve loved everything in the Netflix AsiaPop Comicon Manila 2018. They’ve got cool booths, interesting program line-up, and a meet-and-greet session with the stars and creators of hit Netflix shows.
My daughter and I enjoyed exploring all the booths from the set replicas to the interactive ones. If you love taking selfies then you’ll have a great time touring the photo walls and playing around with the props as you go along. The Luke Cage photo wall even has spray paint can props that fans can use for their photos. Incidentally, Luke Cage is one of the popular series in Netflix and is noted for its social and political relevance today. Lead actor Mike Colter, co-star Mustafa Shakir, and creator Cheo Hodari Coker were also present in the event.
Another photo wall that we liked is the one for Disenchantment series. The graphics will remind you of the long-time animation series The Simpsons. This is because Disenchantment shares the same creator with The Simpsons, Matt Groening. In this series, viewers will be taken to a wild ride of misadventures with a rebellious and alcoholic Princess Bean. Animation shows usually attract a young audience but Disenchantment is more suited for adult crowds. As such, parents should be ready to guide their kids should they allow them to watch the show.
Experiencing the best of the best in Netflix AsiaPop Comicon Manila 2018 is more than just tours and photo-ops. Interactive sessions like panel discussion with the stars and creators of our favourite shows also make the experience worthwhile. After seeing the pics, we got on with our exploration and had a blast at the Stranger Things set feature. They had retro arcade machines set up in the area and it’s not just for display. Parents, teens, and kids have the opportunity to experience playing classic games like Galaga the old fashioned way. Not just that, Riverdale fans are up for lots of treats at Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe. Aside from a life-sized replica of the shop, Josie and the Pussycats were also there to dish out some songs.
Here’s more, Netflix gathered some of the stars and creators of their popular shows to interact with comicon fans. Aside from Luke Cage stars, Finn Jones and Iron Fist executive producer Raven Metzner were also in the panel to answer questions for the fans. Iron Fist is a series created for Netflix based on a Marvel Character with the same name. Finn Jones plays the role of the lead character is Daniel Rand, alter ego of Iron Fist. He is a billionaire martial arts expert who has the ability to use the mystical power of the Iron Fist. Fans of this show can look forward to its second season streaming live soon. Well, I wasn’t able to see them personally, so I just enjoyed this Iron Fist photo wall.
Castlevania fans were also happy to meet the show’s executive producer Adi Shankar. People who love suspense, adventure, and thrills in their show are some of Castlevania’s most avid viewers. This is because Castlevania is a video game inspired series that features vampires and slayers. The new season of this show is also slated in the coming weeks.
To cap off our best of the best experience at the Netflix AsiaPop Comicon Manila 2018, Stream Team members were treated to an exclusive preview of the latest upcoming show from Netflix. This new show is something that the whole family can enjoy. This means that parents and their kids have a new bonding activity to share using Netflix. I got lots of nice things to say about it, but for now all I can say is that I can’t wait for it to be shown. For Netflix fans out there, just keep an eye out for new and exciting shows that are coming your way soon.
