Full Trailer for ELFQUEST Fan-Film and Comic-Con Panel Details

A new full length trailer has been released for the Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes' fan-made film Elfquest. They also have also announced that they will be bringing their Elfquest project to Comic-Con this year. The original teaser trailer for the film blew up online, and it will be interesting to see how this project turns out. The fan-film has got some solid production value, and the actual film could end up being pretty cool.

Here's the synopsis:

ElfQuest tells the tale of a tribe of elves who find themselves driven from their forest by humans and must find a new home. It’s known for its magical artistry and for being a vanguard of the indie/fantasy scene. Originally self published by the Pini’s, the comic book series was later picked up by Marvel and DC Comics respectively. 

The Comic-Con panel will take place on Friday, July 22nd at 8pm at the San Diego Convention Center in Room 4. Check out the new trailer below and tell us what you think!
