Last night I had the pleasure of attendingGet Animated Invasion party in NYC. It was a packed fun night filled with fans of the Warner Bros/ Boomerang brand. New York Comic Con 2017 is officially underway and Warner Bros. Consumer Products celebrated by getting Looney with VIP guests at a very special kick-off event last night (10/5) at the Get Animated Invasion. Influencers, industry innovators, creatives and press gathered at the Get Animated Invasion, presented by Warner Bros., in partnership with Boomerang and BoxLunch. Check out my pictures below.
The party was amazing with a full supply of ice cream that you can eat. There were drinks available and the place was spacious enough even with a packed crowd. The real highlight was the set pieces of the event. The placement of actual locations like Bugs Bunny place, Jerry's apartment and the Mystery Van surrounded by smoke was spot on. There is also a variety of apparel to buy from shirts, jackets and more. Overall it was a great night and place I suggest everyone checks out.
Upon entering the Invasion, fans are transported into a world of animation where the line between watching and experiencing is not just blurred, it’s completely fused. An Instagrammer’s dream, the Invasion is a place where time stands still, where cartoons come to life and life gets animated. The animated worlds will have their own bright, colorful spaces, each blending seamlessly together. It will feel like you stepped right through your television and into an animated dream! Watch out for falling anvils while you explore WILE E COYOTE’S TURF. Frolic through BUGS BUNNY’S FOREST, but be vewy, vewy quiet… ‘cuz it’s Rabbit Season. Be transported into outer space and discover a fleet of Space Clones that have invaded MARVIN THE MARTIAN’S PLANET X, but don’t get too cozy, because there’s a Monster lurking around the corner in SCOOBY-DOO’S SPOOKY WOODS. Kick back in TOM AND JERRY’S LIVING ROOM and see if you can spot Jerry’s apartment in the house. Or, pull up a chair to enjoy your favorite cartoons from Boomerang and exclusive fine art by shelby and sandy in THE JETSONS SCREENING ROOM. Hungry?
