Orlando-based fandom explosion MegaCon returns to the Orange County Convention Center this spring with a second crack at getting some hobbits into the City Beautiful.

The venerable (not just a) comics convention takes over the Convention Center on May 19-22 for four days worth of comics, toys, local artisans, panels, celebrity meet-and-greets and veritable armies of cosplayers.

MegaCon organizers will attempt a do-over of the hobbit gathering that didn't happen last year, with Lord of the Ring's Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan all confirmed. Other notable guests include Brent Spiner and LeVar Burton (!) of Star Trek repute.

Tickets for MegaCon are available online now.
