This year’s San Diego Comic Con International event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and measures in place to mitigate its impact.
With much of the world operating under stringent measures to limit the spread of coronavirus and the US state of California advising citizens to stay at home, this July’s San Diego Comic Con International event has been cancelled. It is the fits time in the show’s 50 years history that it has been cancelled.
San Diego Comic Con is the pop culture event of the year, when movie studios, comic book creators and other entertainment outlets share their latest announcements with the world.
The LEGO Group attends each year with panels, displays and exclusive products. It is likely that this year’s exclusive sets are already in production, so may be offered to fans in a different way.
Those who were planning to attend this year’s event can have their ticket refunded or have it transferred to next year’s event.
“Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for San Diego Comic Con. “We eagerly look forward to the time when we can all meet again and share in the community we all love and enjoy.”
