‘Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope’ Trailer is a Geek Celebration

The reason that Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope works is because it focuses on the very human story that’s sometimes lost during the event itself. Amidst the sprawling, sweaty mass of storm troopers and manga characters come to life, it’s easy to forget that there are people with hopes and dreams hiding under their latex. When footage was shown at Comic-Con last year, it seemed like it would be a huge explosion of good vibes toward a complex event. When it showed at Fantastic Fest, it proved itself to be sugary, but level-headed enough not to feel like a syrup-chugging contest.

No, not everything about Comic-Con is sweet – especially the shifting focus away from comic books and toward other mass media – but director Morgan Spurlock is seasoned enough to know where the real stories are: in the people.

Check out the trailer for yourself:
