Adult Swim Is Hitting Up SDCC With A Multiday Pirate Parrrty

Adult Swim Is Hitting Up SDCC With A Multiday Pirate Parrrty

The backside of SDCC is being taken over by Adult Swim again with Adult Swim offering up a four-day pirate-themed event and panels

One of the big staples of SDCC every year, at least outside of the main convention, has been the fun that Adult Swim brings every year. They have brought so much over the years to entertain not only on the show floor but also outside for those who might not be able to make it inside. This year, is not going to be anything different with Adult Swim bringing a Pirate Parrrty outside and many panels and screenings going on inside. All it is going to cost you is some time to get in line and check it out. Unless you do not want to see some of those AEW wrestlers go into a tag team match with some of the faces from some of Adult Swim’s shows. Yes, that is going to be a thing.

All of this kicks off on July 25th behind the main convention center out in San Diego, CA with games and activities going down during the day. All are themed around the various Adult Swim shows out there. Then, each night, there will be a different takeover for the space with the aforementioned AEW wrestling event on Thursday, Friday a night of seeing premieres of new shows coming to Adult Swim, like the new Rick and Morty: The Anime, and Saturday night wrapping up with a live-draw and fan Q&A event with Michael Cusack and Zach Hadel from Smiling Friends. Along with all manner of fun little gifts and extras to be picked up and the first chance to take a photo with the Rickmobile before it starts to go out on tour.

If that is not your jam specifically for Adult Swim, they will be hosting three different panels during SDCC that will require access to the convention to see. One for Common Side Effects, another for the Rick And Morty: The Anime, and finally a My Adventures with Superman screening and panel to enjoy. You could try to go fully insane and aim to hit everything that Adult Swim has to offer out there, so we have listed all of the finer details below for you to take note of. Have a gander and see if you will be joining us for all of the fun that will be going down over the weekend.
