Dust off your slayer stakes and get ready, Buffy fans! At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the Sunnydale gang needs your help to keep SDCC safe from the vampires that are descending on the convention and its surrounding areas.
If you’re a hardcore fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you definitely won’t want to miss out on San Diego Comic Con’s interactive scavenger hunt taking place this year. 20th Century Fox is throwing a Buffy the Vampire Slayer-themed scavenger hunt that will turn fans into slayers themselves.
All details of participation can be found at Shop.Fox.com. You have to register with a valid email in order to receive the scavenger hunt maps and clues.
The website says, “To celebrate Buffy the Vampire Slayer, on Saturday, July 21st, 20th Century Fox Consumer Products invites Buffy fans on the first-ever Buffy Vampire Hunt through San Diego. Every fan becomes a slayer as they must locate each “Vampire Nest” across the Gaslamp District and throughout San Diego’s Convention center. At each location, fans will be rewarded with a wide range of prizes including Buffy Funko figures, posters, stickers, pins, t-shirts, comics and much more. Happy Hunting, Slayers!”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired from 1997 through 2003 and starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, David Boreanaz, Nicholas Brendon, Charisma Carpenter, James Marsters and Eliza Dushku. During its time on air, the series earned a huge fan following. The series was (and still is) so popular that there have been discussions recently regarding a potential reboot or revival. In a recent interview, Fox TV group chair Gary Newman said that while a Buffy reboot is a frequent hot topic of conversation, a reboot or revival will only come about when creator Joss Whedon is ready. He said:
[row]“I think if you look in our library, ‘Buffy’ is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back. It’s something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with. When Joss decides it’s time, we’ll do it. And until Joss decides it’s time, it won’t happen.”[/row]
A revival may not be happening, but this massively awesome scavenger hunt is happening on Saturday, July 21st! You can sign up right now at Shop.Fox.com in order to be a part of it!
