Comic-Con: 'Outlander' Booth Brings Print Shop Scene to Life
Outlander fans at Comic-Con can get a very early sneak peek at one of the most highly anticipated scenes of season three.
The Starz series went all out for its booth on the convention center floor this year in San Diego, bringing the infamous print shop to life. Book readers know that one of the biggest scenes to come in season three is the fateful moment when Claire (Caitriona Balfe) finally reunites with her long-lost husband, Jamie (Sam Heughan), in a print shop in Edinburgh after 20 years of separation in their own times. Jamie works there under the name Alex Malcolm, smuggling liquor and using the print shop as his cover.
That very scene was teased at the end of the just-released season-three trailer, and now Outlander fans can experience it in real life, complete with hunky Highlanders. Both men and women are dressed in kilts and Outlander shirts, so you can find your own Jamie or Claire to romantically reunite with inside the print shop.
Fun fact: The "A. Malcolm" sign hanging at the entrance to the booth is the same one used in the show. They took it from the set and shipped it to San Diego just for this weekend, along with the files hanging overhead. This print shop is the real deal.
Fans visiting the booth (#4029) also have a chance to have their own custom Outlander shirt made in the printing press, as well as a large branded tote bag, bandana and Comic-Con exclusive poster print. Take a virtual tour of the booth below.
The A. Malcolm sign hanging is the ACTUAL SIGN from production. And all the pages overhead are files from production too! Amazing details. pic.twitter.com/v4YSmwbDdD— Sydney Bucksbaum (@SydneyBucksbaum) July 20, 2017
