THE EXPANSE fans will be well served at this weekend’s New York Comic Con (Javits Center, Thursday 3rd-Sunday 6th October 2019), not only with plenty of of the shows stars and creative team in attendance to herald the forthcoming fourth season premiere but also with plenty of opportunities to fly their EXPANSE flags – none less exciting than an incredible photo-op activation being held over the course of the weekend.
Fans will be ushered to check out a pop-up exhibition of the shows incredibly rendered props and on-screen images before being invited to get your pic taken in a special platform – the perfect way for the die-hard EXPANSE disciples to show off their support of the show. Which is why the thing continues to be on the air, after all.
No details on times or location of the activation just yet but we’ll update this post and share on our socials, the second the secret is out. From the Element Brand Group press release:
“…we are thrilled to be working with Amazon Prime Video for their Prime Original THE EXPANSE activation. This experience will bring NYCC-goers and fans on an interstellar experience during NYCC to celebrate the show’s new home at Amazon Prime Video and the premiere of its fourth season.
Upon arrival, fans will transform into fearless explorers as they join the crew of the show’s Rocinante spaceship. Attendees will step aboard the Hollywood-level spacecraft to journey to the upcoming season’s distant new setting. Guests will star in their own recreations of the Season 4 artwork, as they dramatically alight to take their first steps on New Terra – or Ilus, depending on your allegiance – in a highly sharable photo booth experience.
The show’s far-away journey becomes reality at NYCC 2019 courtesy of Prime Video. As our rookie adventurers line up and embark, The Expanse ambassadors instruct them on what to expect inside the ship, briefing these brave explorers on their one-way mission to boldly step out into the unknown. Amidst the authentic props and flickering screens, an array of Easter eggs, show references and Snapchat-enabled Belter tattoos draw everyone deeper into The Expanse’s distinctive universe.
The must-share photo op will thrill core fans and new audiences with the wonder of space exploration, turning series anticipation into fervor, and inspiring all of us to tune in to the action.”
