    I think for the widest appeal Don Brown and Doug Parker would be good choices. What went wrong shoehorning in a story for US audiences while trying to match the pre animated mouth flaps. ADR limits even the best voice actors. I agree it could have been better, I think if we want to have a deep dive of what went wrong we need to hear from the writers.

    I hope it comes back to Orlando soon. Wasn't expecting it to come back for Fall, since they probably booked in advance, but anything out of state is either going off limits for me on a time/money basis for at least a year and a half.

    I'm hoping so. Tfcon just posted that they'll return to Florida in the future. I'm really hoping that's simply at the spring 2021 show.

    Same coming from the D. My fingers are crossed that Toronto is a go but if not this is my final hope since it’s a 5 hr drive either way

    Assuming that everything goes well, this will be my first TFcon in quite some time.

    Seeing as this is at almost an 80% chance of not happening due to illinois' convention rules and the uptick in case that will probably take a couple months to lower, do you guys think it'll come back to Chicago next year.

    It's a strong possibility. Though with how 2020 is going, it might be whatever part of the USA that hasn't devolved into a Mad Max style apocalyptic dystopia.

    So no New York, California, or Minnesota show, got it.

    I plan on going to either Chicago 2021 or if we get a Reston 2021 show.

    I'm interested in Orlando, or Chicago if it's ACTUALLY at the O'Hare hotel again (2015?), and not just "near" O'Hare like recently.

    Probably the safest thing to do at this point given the information we have today. I hope this doesn't hurt the organizers too much and that we're still able to see some of the presentations (like the third party releases, etc) online somehow.
