IGN Fan Fest is back once again with a virtual event that celebrates the world of television, movies, and games. We are so excited that this year’s show will feature a host of exclusive panels, clips, interviews, special announcements, and much more.

From the Halo TV series to Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga to Spider-Man: No Way Home, there will be so much to look forward to. To help ensure you don’t miss a thing, we’ve created a guide that will let you know what you can expect from IGN Fan Fest 2022 and how you can watch along with us.

Spider-Man: No Way Home
Since swinging into theaters in December, Spider-Man: No Way Home has brought in more than $1.7 billion at the global box office.

However, IGN Fan Fest will have a spoiler-filled conversation with some of the people who brought you the movie.
Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2
Attack on Titan has returned for its final season and the show that has become one of the most popular anime series of the last decade still has a few surprises in store for fans new and old. To help celebrate Attack on Titan’s impressive run, IGN Fan Fest will feature an interview with the English-language voice cast of the series to discuss the final season and look back on the journey that got them there.
FROM is a new sci-fi horror television series that was created and written by John Griffin and executive produced by Avengers: Endgame’s Anthony and Joe Russo.

OXENFREE II: Lost Signals
Set five years after the original game, Oxenfree II: Lost Signals will follow Riley as she returns to her hometown of Camena to investigate new, mysterious radio signals. While Oxenfree II: Lost Signals only has a 2022 release window so far, IGN Fan Fest will help with the wait by giving fans a table read of a scene with one of the writers and some of the cast. We’ll also debut an exclusive look at the game.
The Legend of Vox Machina
The Legend of Vox Machina has arrived on Prime Video and is the long-awaited adaptation of parts of Critical Role’s first campaign. Season 1 will wrap up right before IGN Fan Fest begins, so we thought we’d help with the sadness that comes with the end of a good thing by having the entire cast break down the events of the first season and also look ahead at what fans can expect from a possible Season 2.
The Northman, an upcoming Viking epic from director Robert Eggers (The Witch, The Lighthouse), is set to release in theaters on April 8, 2022. Alexander Skarsgård, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke, Claes Bang, Björk, and Willem Dafoe all star in a film that promises to be an “action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder.” At IGN Fan Fest, Eggers will stop by to provide a deep dive into the film’s production and story and reveal an exclusive look at The Northman.

Ben Schwartz will once again reprise his role as the voice of Sonic alongside Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. In this sequel to the 2020 original, Idris Elba will be joining the cast as Knuckles, who appears to be working with Dr. Robotnik to search for an emerald that can provide the power to build and destroy civilizations. The film will be speeding its way into theaters on April 8, 2022, and IGN Fan Fest will have a panel discussion with some of the cast and the crew.
