Major Star Wars Villain Is Coming To Shreveport For Geek’d Con
Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is heading back to the Shreveport Convention Center. The dates this year are August 18th through 20th, 2023.
Since its start, Geek'd Con has been one of the premiere comic con style events in the state of Louisiana. The event has generated millions of dollars in economic impact to the Shreveport and Bossier City area. While also bringing in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members, Star Wars icons, Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame members, and horror movie legends.
Tickets for this year are available here.
The 2023 Geek'd Con lineup features a ton of amazing talent. Including a Grammy Award winner, and Olympic Gold Medalist, an NFL Hall of Fame member, and multiple Disney icons. Not to mention guests from some of the biggest franchises in the world...like Scooby-Doo, Pokémon, and Harry Potter.
These celebrity guests come to Downtown Shreveport to meet fans, sign autographs, and take pictures.
Appearing at this year's event will be the voice of two major Star Wars villains...Sam Witwer!
Witwer has voiced Darth Maul in the Star Wars universe in the films, The Clone Wars, and Rebels. He's also voiced Emperor Palpatine in the animated Star Wars universe.
But his Star Wars resume doesn't end there. He is also the voice and likeness for Starkiller.
Originally appearing in 2008's The Force Unleashed, Starkiller has gone on to become one of the most popular modern Star Wars characters.
Witwer has also starred in Battlestar Galactica as Crashdown, Smallville as Davis Bloome/Doomsday, Being Human as Aidan Waite, Riverdale as Rupert Chipping, Supergirl as Agent Liberty, and Once Upon a Time as Mr. Hyde.
You've also caught him in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Star Trek: Enterprise, The Walking Dead, Dexter, and of course the 2007 film The Mist...which was filmed right here in the Shreveport area.
