With one day late, the motion comic trailer for Peter Panzerfaust finally arrived. Unfortunately it doesn’t have much talking, but we get a short glimpse of Summer’s performance and the character (Wendy) she voices. Check out the trailer below.
Actually, the trailer was supposed to air yesterday with the release of the motion comic today. So far there are no words on a release for today, but we will hope that it comes out soon.
The team behind the Philadelphia Comic Con has released the official schedule with all panel dates, including the Firefly panel with Summer, Adam and Jewel (probably also Gina Torres since she has been recently added to the guest list as a replacement for Nathan).
The panel will be held in the TERRACE BALLROOM 4, from 5:00 – 5:45pm on Saturday. Check out the complete schedule for a list of all panel dates and the floor map, so that you know where to go.

If you haven’t bought a ticket yet and maybe want to visit the convention. You can still get VIP tickets for Summer and the Firefly gang on the official website, as well as photos with all of them here. I’m sure the group photos will be sold out very fast, so you better get them while they’re available. As always, try to get as soon as possible to Summer’s booth. And of course, send us some impressions from the convention if you want.
Even though Summer couldn’t make it to the Ottawa Comic Con, she joined the Firefly panel via Skype. From what we’ve heard from the panel, it looks like “cat burglar are responsible” for her missing passport. Hopefully we can get a few more impressions from the panel later on.
Update: Summer didn’t join the panel for the whole time, but apologized several times for not being able to make it to the convention.
Just got back from the con! What happened was that Summer had been planning to attend the Firefly panel with Jewel and Nathan early in the day. Obviously she couldn’t — but she skyped partway through the panel and talked via audio for a few minutes. She attributed her passport’s disappearance to a cat burglar. “I have to get a new one,” she added, and then Nathan and Jewel said, with “duh” voices, “Yeah, you do.” The tone was delightful and light and pleasant, and it ended with Nathan saying “Suuummmmeeer!” in the style of the blooper real “Summer!” exclamation, and Summer seeming to be just the right annoyed/embarrassed/pleased mixture. It was a good panel. (Also saw Felicia Day and Nicholas Brendon’s panels today, both of which were enjoyable. I think James Marsters is tomorrow — but I only went for today; I’d seen JM in the past at any rate….)
Summer made a small video for all the fans to apologize for not being able to make it to the Ottawa Comic Con. In the video she explains why she couldn’t make it in time. Check out the video below. As always, screen caps are up in the gallery.
I’m sure people are sad, but at least we know that she is fine. It wasn’t that bad after all. The good news, the convention organizers invited her to the Montreal Comic Con from September 13-15.
Note that currently she is not listed on the page. We will keep you updated and let you know as soon as she will be announced as guest for this convention.
Sad news for all fans who attend the Ottawa Comic Con. The convention organizers just announced that Summer had to cancel her appearance this weekend due to a personal emergency. If you purchased a photo op with Nathan, Summer and Jewel you can get a refund at the photo op booth or change the ticket.
We just heard that unhappily a personal emergency keeps Summer Glau from appearing at Ottawa Comiccon this weekend. She apologizes profusely to her fans and supporters. For those who have bought a trio Firefly photo op with Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau and Jewel Staite, they can go to the photo op booth to exchange them for a duo photo op or a refund.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Summer and we wish her all the best in this difficult time. It wasn’t that bad after all.
In less than a month the Philadelphia Comic Con will have it’s start. Its a huge convention, and so the organizer have published a map where you can find all areas. Make sure to check it before you go to the convention.
Summer’s booth is located in the Firefly area near Adam, Jewel and Nathan. Her queues tend to get very long, so make sure to get to her asap.
Unfortunately photo ops with the Firefly gang are sold out already, but you can still get your picture with Summer (at her booth), the VIP experience ticket and your autograph (at her booth). As always, you can find all necessary information on the official website and in the previous news. A complete schedule should be published closer to the convention begin.
We wish everyone a lot of fun at the convention, and of course, take some pictures.

That’s a great mini Firefly reunion, isn’t it ? Now we definitely want some pictures.
The Peter Panzerfaust panel at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo had a view more Infos about the making of the motion comic. Here are the parts about Summer’s recording.
Q: VO for animation.
E: Eljah Wood as Peter, Summer Glau as Wendy, Ron Perlman as Hook, and Dante Basco. Orchard scene sounds v. promising.
Q: As far as VO work goes. Did any actors bring anything special to character that you weren’t expecting?
E: Ron read lines in three different voices—his own voice, British, and German accent. German accent was perfect. Elijah got it right off the bat. Understood the character. Summer brought a sense of vulnerability and really got into character. She just let go and poured everything into it. She definitely teared up a few times. /Applause in the booth after an orchard scene reading b/c so emotional. / I was amazed she was able to deliver so many lines with such range.
Sounds like Wendy experiences a wide range of emotions and Summer’s performance was fabulous. Makes the wait for the comic even harder. You can follow the link to the whole transcript of the panel.
The teaser seems to be really good, so hopefully we can add it later.
Kurtis Wiebe has posted an article on his blog and thanks all the fans for the support.
[...]But, at the end of the day, it was the lightbulb moment about Peter Panzerfaust that will make it a very special one. And really, that’s all because of the people who have given me their time, money and trust and supported this series either from the beginning, as new readers, as speculators, as Summer Glau fans, as anyone who’s been involved in any capacity of spreading the word about Peter Panzerfaust.[...]
New Infos on the panels at the Ottawa comic con came up. There will be a Firefly Cast Q&A featuring Jewel Staite & Summer on Saturday May 11th at 11:30 AM. The Doors will be open for VIP and Deluxe Passes at 9:00 AM; 3-Day and Saturday Passes at 10:00 AM.
You also have the chance to take photos with both of them for about $80 and with Summer alone for $50. Check out the official page for more info. Of course you can also get autographs for about $40.
The team of inside the box has released another behind the scenes video. After Summer and Wilson, this is the third video and its about Regina King. She plays a district attorney that visits Sofia and Matt. The video gives you more infos about her role and has also a few new shots of Summer. So you might want to check out the gallery.
It looks like that most of the short is done and according to the producers, the movie should come out in about a month. But they still need some money to reach the finish line, so you can still donate if you want. Details can be found on the support page, or you send a mail directly to email@example.com. They will also release the full behind the scenes video some time next week.
