Star Wars: The real Force15. January 2024
Many social media outlets are saying that “The Orville” is the better Star Trek! Why is that the case? What makes “The Orville” different or better?
Why did Seth MacFarlane, known for Family Guy, create his own version of a sci-fi series with “The Orville”? Why did Star Trek fans immediately recognise similarities between the series and Roddenberry’s successful franchise? Why do some fans even go so far as to claim that MacFarlane’s series realises Roddenberry’s vision better than current Star Trek spin-offs? And why do you recognise many parallels to other series/films such as Star Wars in “The Orville” when the Force is with Cpt. Ed Mercer and his crew?
In our presentation, we would like to give an overview of the series and reveal where and how many parallels there are to well-known sci-fi series.
Where was it filmed? Which well-known characters appear in the Orville universe? How much influence did the creator, Seth MacFarlane, have on the series?
And how could it possibly continue?
Join us for an exciting talk about the “Planetary Union”.
Lecturer: Marion Müller, Frank MüllerDuration: 60 min - The Lecture will be held in: german
At MagicCon we, Marion and Frank, are known as the GOT/HOTD experts, but we met 20 years ago in a Star Wars costume club. Our passion for making costumes from our favourite films and series has stayed with us all these years. Together we have presented characters from Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, Captain Future, Spaceballs, Starship Troopers, Terminator, Castle and, since last year, "The Orville" at FedCon. We share a love of sci-fi series/films with "The Orville" creator Seth McFarlane and have been fans of the series since it first aired. We met members of the crew, visited the filming locations in California and were able to use our knowledge of costume making to recreate the series' "gala uniforms" in detail.
In our lectures, we would like to take you on a journey to the Orville and take a look behind the often comedic façade of the series, which is thought-provoking with socio-critical themes.
