The Toronto Sailor Moon Celebration is upgrading in 2018 to begin its evolution into Pretty Heroes, a convention dedicated to strong female characters.
Sailor Moon programming will always be the heart of the event, but we wanted to add more awesome female characters to the convention and create a space that celebrates female heroes and inspires young people to believe in themselves and dream big.
We hope you will join us in 2018 for our first two day event and we’d love to hear which other franchises you want to see incorporated into the convention.
Our first voice actor guest of honour is Matt Hill, the voice of the adorable guardian beast Keroberos from the Cardcaptors English dub. You may also recognize Matt from many of his other voice roles including Kira on Gundam SEED, Bankotsu in Inuyasha, and Ed in Ed, Edd and Eddy. He also jumped into the role (and suit) as everyone’s favourite turtle in the half shell, “Raphael,” in the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III movie. Whether you want to say “cowabunga” or find out his favourite flavour of pudding, let’s make him feel welcome in Toronto!
Our second voice actor guest announcement is the multi-talented Carly McKillip whom fans will recognize as the original voice of Sakura from the Cardcaptors English dub. She is also known as an actress, songwriter, musician, singer, musical engineer/editor, and music producer. She’s gone far since her voice acting days and fans are encouraged to check out her band, One More Girl for a sampling of her musical endeavours.
Our third voice actor guest announcement is the fantastic Vince Corazza whom fans will recognize as the original voice of the alien Alan Granger and the third voice of Darien Shields/Tuxedo Mask in the original English dubs of Sailor Moon. Returning to our convention for a second time, Vince is looking forward to meeting even more of his Torontonian fans.
Our fourth voice actor guest announcement is the multi-talented, multi-award winning Canadian actress Sabrina Grdevich whom fans will recognize as the original voice of the alien Anne Granger and the first voice of Sailor Pluto in the original English dubs of Sailor Moon.
The circus is coming! Performing at our convention for the first time, IlluminAir Entertainment will be there all weekend to perform multiple aerialist shows and be featured in a variety of programming.
