The long badge lines and crazy costums have begun, friends-not-seen since last year abound and anticipation and fun are underway – DragonCon 2008 is officially open.  TORn is preparing for its 2:30 p.m. Hobbit Spy panel today and again Saturday at 5:30 p.m..  Friends from “Reclaiming The Blade,” a documentary sword film that involves many of the key people in front and behind the camera on “The Lord of the Rings,” contacted us and made an incredible offer. Narrated by John-Rhys Davies, the film seems like to be a fan favorite, but the film’s director Daniel McNicoll contacted TORn yesterday and offered to world premeire the film’s trailer at the TORn panel and is providing a genuine sword to be given away during Saturday’s panel. Stay tuned for more details and hopefully photos of the sights and sounds that is DragonCon!
