WarnerMedia may not be bringing any of DC to this year’s virtual [email protected], but they are going to offer some of the panels featuring their Warner Bros. Home Entertainment division. The offerings this year will feature stars, filmmakers, and animation experts celebrating the 80th anniversary of the legendary Bugs Bunny. This will then include an analysis of Saturday morning cartoons. Also a preview for the upcoming original film, Deep Blue Sea 3.
Below is all the information for the panels that you will need, including links.
Bugs Bunny’s 80th Anniversary Extravaganza
Take a trip through eight decades of laughs and carrots when WBHE presents an all-encompassing look at one of the world’s most beloved and recognizable stars. Three current voices of Bugs Bunny — Billy West (Space Jam, Futurama, Doug), Jeff Bergman (Tiny Toon Adventures, Our Cartoon President) and Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes Cartoons, Muppet Babies) — join Looney Tunes Cartoons executive producer Pete Browngardt, movie historian/author/TV personality Leonard Maltin (Entertainment Tonight), animation historian/author Jerry Beck (Animation Scoop), and George Feltenstein (Senior Vice President, Theatrical Catalog, WBHE) to discuss Bugs Bunny’s history from theatrical shorts to Saturday morning cartoons and the new HBO Max series. Actress Yvette Nicole Brown (Community, Avengers: Endgame, DC Super Hero Girls) will moderate.

Deep Blue Sea 3 The Panel!
New discoveries and dangerous predators emerge in the middle of the ocean in Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s highly anticipated feature film, Deep Blue Sea 3. The follow-up to the breakout success of Deep Blue Sea 2 (itself a sequel to the 1999 cult hit Deep Blue Sea), Deep Blue Sea 3 will be the hot topic of discussion between an esteemed group of panelists including actors Tania Raymonde (Lost, Goliath), Nathaniel Buzolic (The Vampire Diaries, Hacksaw Ridge), Emerson Brooks (MacGyver), Bren Foster (The Last Ship) and Japanese star Reina Aoi, director John Pogue (The Quiet Ones), and screenwriter Dirk Blackman (Outlander).
Sharknado franchise director Anthony C. Ferrante will moderate the panel, which will include tantalizing clips from the upcoming film. Deep Blue Sea 3, the next feature-length installment of the franchise’s ocean adventures, is set for release on Digital starting July 28, 2020, and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on August 25, 2020.

Ferranti and Matthew Patterson.
The panelists will offer fans a grand history of the evolution of animation — from silver screen shorts to full-fledged television cartoons, with glimpses along the way of Tex Avery, Popeye and Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies, as well as Space Ghost and Dino Boy, Jonny Quest, Lippy the Lion and more!
