Our staffers are warming up their speaking voices, brushing up on their Hobbit knowledge and getting ready to head for the Anaheim Convention Center for WonderCon in less than a week. Friday March 16, at 12:30 p.m. (lunch time) TORn will start programming at the convention that will surely take over the title “Happiest Place On Earth,” from neighboring Disneyland for three days.

We will explore the latest news from New Zealand and The Hobbit film that is currently in overdrive filming. We will discuss news, rumors and have a wealth of opinions and speculation about what fans can expect this December and next. On hand will be staffers Justin, Garfiemo, MrCere, Ostadan, Quickbeam and Saruman as either part of the panel or part of the day.

Not only that, but our friends at Badali Jewelry have a great deal going on during the convention at Booth #472. If you just tell them you are a fan and reader of TheOneRing.net you will receive 15% off your entire purchase. This includes the 25 Arkenstone Replicas which will be sold for $69.00 at WonderCon. They have a full array of Tolkien-themed jewelry available at the convention. In fact, one lucky person attending the panel will receive one of Badali’s Sterling Silver One Ring of Power (size 5-13). You can even order TORn Geek tags from them.

If you aren’t going to WonderCon and you live in the greater Los Angeles area or just feel like taking a trip next weekend, what are you waiting for? The San Diego Comic-Con might be sold out but you can still register for WonderCon.
