DRINKING HOOOOORNS. Never before have I been so obsessed with a shows appearance at a con when I don’t even watch the show. But omg every year Vikings is doing THE MOST and I live for it.
Not only will there be drinking horns again this year (DRINKING HORNS!) but they are holding a VIKING FUNERAL PROCESSION that will meander through the Gaslamp Quarter from noon until 5:45PM on Friday (ALMOST SIX HOURS WHAT IS THIS AMAZINGNESS) which will culminate in SETTING A LONGSHIP ON FIRE IN THE BAY.
I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried. This is the best thing I have ever heard.
They’ll also be doing totally normal things like holding a panel and having a booth on the con floor and handing out exclusive comic books. But. DRINKING HORNS AND SHIPS ON FIRE.
5:45PM-6:45PM, Room 6BCF
Vikings favorites return to introduce new faces to SDCC. Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Gustaf Skarsgåd (Floki), Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn), and Alex Høgh Andersen (Ivar) along with Michael Hirst (writer/creator) reveal an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming season.
A new generation of warriors is rising in the Vikings world and fans have the opportunity to be immersed in it by showing off their swordplay in a video booth. Fans will get into character by selecting their weapon of choice and garbing themselves in Viking gear. A time-slice camera array will capture footage of each fan demonstrating their best battle moves with Ragnar’s sons – Bjorn, Ivar the Boneless, Ubbe and Hvitserk. Video will be available to share on social platforms.
