Christopher Lloyd of ‘Back to the Future’ film series, is among the celebrity guests due to attend this year’s Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC).

Veronica Taylor, the veteran voice actor behind Pokémon’s lead character Ash Ketchum, and Fabian Nicieza - who comic fans will know as the co-creator of Deadpool - will also be in attendance at the ultimate pop culture event in the region, which takes place from April 7-9 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The legendary creator of comic book superheroes, Stan Lee, will host an exclusive session via live video Q&A with fans during the convention, as well as an opportunity to purchase exclusive signed merchandise from Stan Lee Collectables during the festival.

This year’s event grants ticket holders the chance to enter a lucky draw to win a trip to Los Angeles for two and walk the red carpet alongside Stan Lee at the premiere of Captain America: Civil War.

MEFCC 2016 promises fans a truly unique experience with appearances by celebrity guests, exclusive merchandise, comics, fun activities, workshops, screenings and a number of international and regional talent, which also includes fantastic food and beverage options, a chill out area and a number of musical performances.

Tickets are available online (www.mefcc.com/tickets) and at Virgin Megastore outlets across the GCC region.
