Celebrity attendees like Bill Goldberg, Ninja Turtle co-creator Kevin Eastman and an attempt to top the world record for the most people dressed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in one venue might make the biggest headlines but the most interesting element of all is the fact that this event will feature the first ever Last Dragon Reunion.

The Last Dragon - Bruce Leroy - Ernie Reyes - Johnny Yu

Bruce Leroy, Ernie Reyes Jr and Johnny Yu Reunite!

Taimak Guarriello (Bruce Leroy himself), Ernie Reyes Jr. (13 year old black belt protege at the time) and Glen Eaton (aka Johnny Yu aka “the medium sized oriental”) will reunite for the first time since the Berry Gordy produced beloved Motown meets kung-fu mashup was released 29 years ago.

The thousands of fans that follow this blog and Facebook page are a testament to the cult classic status that The Last Dragon has reached. It still amazes me to see how many fans get a kick out of the pictures, videos and stories we share. For fans this is a very big deal; the lucky ones who attend the D-Lux Expo will get the chance to meet, take pictures with, get autographs from and take part in a panel with Taimak, Ernie, Glen and me!

The Last Dragon Reunion Panel

On the Saturday at 3:00pm I will be hosting The Last Dragon panel. This will be your chance to ask Taimak, Ernie and Glen any question you want.  It will be in Panel Room 1.

@thelastglow/Fan Tribute to The Last Dragon is going to be there?

Yes I’ll be there. Come by my the panel or my table say hi, watch & chat about The Last Dragon and maybe pickup one of  our Last Dragon inspired T-Shirts. I should be easy to find because I’ll still be glowing from meeting my biggest childhood heroes! I’m also set to be a celebrity (lol) judge of The Last Dragon costume contest. So if you dress up as Sho’nuff, Laura Charles or Leroy make sure you come by my table so I can take a good look at your outfit. I am really looking forward to this event and hope that a good number of Last Dragon fans can make too!

I know for a fact that Taimak, Ernie & Glen are very excited too reunite. Check out some of  Taimak’s recent tweets and Facebook posts:

This is Kind of a Big Deal

“I was already calling it a mini reunion with Ernie & Taimak coming but now that Glen is in it’s the real thing! I mean now this huge! It’s the first time these guys have even seen each other; much less been at the same event together! Now we just need Keshia Knight Pulliam, William H. Macy, Chaz Palminteri, Carl Anthony Payne, Christopher Murney and Vanity! lol! And of course it’s a shame this didn’t happen sooner so the late Julius Carry (Sho’nuff) and Leo O’Brien (Richie Green) could have come.”
