New York Comic Con is starting off with a bang announcing dozens of guests for its October show.

The headliners so far include Captain America himself Chris Evans and Obi-Wan Kenobi Ewan McGregor. Other Star Wars guests joining the lineup include our favorite trio of Mandalorians Katee Sackhoff, Simon Kassianides, and Mercedes Varnado. Along with the live-action stars from a galaxy far, far away, our Clone Wars heroes are joining us with Ashley Eckstein, Matthew Lanter, James Arnold Taylor, and Dee Bradley Baker.

Evans isn’t the only Marvel guest, a few of the Guardians of the Galaxy are on board with Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, and Michael Rooker. Shameik Moore, Miles Morales from Into the Spider-Verse, will also be swinging his way through New York City to hang out at Javits Center through the weekend.

Finally, no event is complete without some pirates, and Rhys Darby, Con O’Neill, Vico Ortiz, Kristian Nairn, and Nathan Foad sailing in from Our Flag Means Death. Other notable guests include the legendary Tim Curry, John Carpenter, Zachary Levi, and Ron Perlman among many, many others.
