San Jose Wizard World Comic Con This Weekend!

Not going to Dragon*Con? Live on the west coast? Need something Middle-earthy to do this weekend that includes two dwarves and a hobbit? Then look no further than the San Jose Wizard World!

The Tolkien festivities will kick off Friday with a Happy Hobbit panel, followed by a “moot,” or Entish get-together, across the street from the convention center at the Affinity Restaurant at the Hilton. Even if you’re not attending the con on Friday, be sure to join us at the moot for some Middle-earth madness, which is prone to happen whenever Fili and Kili are around.


Saturday is your opportunity to meet Billy Boyd (Pippin) and ask him anything at his panel, which will undoubtedly be comic gold and of course, very informative.

Below are the specifics of each event:



San Jose Convention Center

150 West San Carlos St., San Jose, California 95113




Happy Hobbit new DP2


“Home is behind, the world ahead, and there are many paths to tread…” – J.R.R. Tolkien

Join sisters Kellie and Alex Rice (Kili and Fili of the webseries Happy Hobbit) as they go beyond the shire to explore how their geeky roots have blossomed into creative careers. Kellie is also known as K.M. Rice, an author and screenwriter who has worked for both Weta Workshop and Magic Leap, while Alex produces shows and shorts and has her own photography business. Both are excited to share tips on self-publishing, low-budget films, and engaging an online audience.



MOOT  7:30 PM

Affinity Restaurant at the San Jose Hilton.

Hilton San Jose, 300 S Almaden Blvd, San Jose, CA 95113

No reservation, we’ll just take over Dwarf-style!




“Lord of the Rings” fans rejoice! Billy Boyd (Peregrin ‘Pippin’ Took) has traveled far and wide to join us for this very special Wizard World Q&A! This is your opportunity to ask Billy about his life, career, and where his adventures will be taking him next! You don’t want to miss this awesome panel!

Billy is also a member of the band beecake, and anyone who has heard either Pippin singing in the LOTR films or “The Last Goodbye” as the credits rolled on Middle-earth with BoTFA this winter knows that he’s more than worth listening to.


Here’s to hoping we’ll see more than less than half of you as we’d expect, and that you all have more than half the fun that you deserve!

Fellowship of the guitar string

Fellowship of the guitar string Not for the first time in his life, Glaswegian actor Billy Boyd is on a quest. He has already had a fair stab at adventure as Pippin the hobbit in Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings trilogy but, having helped save Middle Earth, his latest mission involves guitars and chords rather than swords and hirsute hobbit feet.

Boyd is the vocalist and guitarist for up and coming four-piece band Beecake. The foursome have got gigs in the States under their belt, a headliner at King Tut’s coming up, interest from record labels and an appearance at next year’s Wickerman Festival. Happily, unlike Boyd’s previous journey, conquering the charts won’t need two hours a day in make-up. Fellowship of the guitar string
