From Hogwarts To Sci-Fi: Major Celebrities Headlining To Abu Dhabi’s Comic Con

A favorite event for every film buff, comic lover, and sci-fi guru is making a major comeback to Abu Dhabi. It’s the 12th edition of the Middle East Film & Comic Con that’s taking place from February 9 to 11.

As with every year, the event attracts a star-studded lineup of guests from our favorite films, TV shows, games, and comics. Let’s meet some of the most exciting celebrities attending the major event:

James & Oliver Phelps aka The Weasley Brothers

For Harry Potter fans, these two guests hardly need any introduction. Everyone knows the proud owners of the Weasley Wizard Wheezes joke shop, aka the quirky, fun-loving Weasley Brothers.

Beyond their iconic roles in the Wizarding World, the twins have also gone on to star in many short films as well as voice-act in some of their favorite video game characters.

Iñaki Godoy aka Monkey D. Luffy

Portraying one of the most persistent and brave characters in a Netflix series is Iñaki Godoy, the Mexican actor behind the iconic straw hat pirate known as Monkey D. Luffy.

His bubbly and addictive personality was the factor that earned him the role of Monkey D. Luffy in One Piece, as he made the show’s creator, Eiichiro Oda, laugh during auditions.

Troy Baker aka The Last of Us Joel

Probably the one video game character to have players crying with their joysticks in hand is the widely loved Joel from The Last Of Us. It turns out that the voice behind this beloved character is Troy Baker, who’s also known to have lent his voice to roles such as Snow Villiers from Final Fantasy XIII and Jonesy in Fortnite.

Peter Cullen aka Optimus Prime

Voicing the wise and heroic leaders of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, voice actor Peter Cullen has been making waves in the entertainment industry. He was even nominated for an Emmy award for being the voice behind the famous Autobot.

Temura Morrison aka Jango Fett

Slaying the sci-fi world is actor Temura Morrison, who not only lent his acting chops to roles such as Boba and Jango Fett in the Star Wars Franchise but also portrayed Temuera in Aquaman and Abin Sur in Green Lantern.
