This year SDCC welcomes to panels that explore how music enriches our favorite TV shows and films in all genres. It’s not just the spooky music to let you know when you should get ready to jump but also the sounds that set the mood and how the selection enriches your experiences.

The panel will cover a variety of shows/movies that will include Mr. Robot, American Horror Story, This Is Us, Marvel’s Runaways, Dear White People, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Riverdale, Blindspot, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, Splitting Up Together, Deadpool 2, A Quiet Place, The Transformers Franchise, Cobra Kai, Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia, and DC Super Hero Girls. Attend the panels and learn how music makes the moment!
