Comic-Con: Episode IV to premiere at 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. It's part of the documentary line-up for the festival, which runs September 8 to 18.

From the press release:
Have you ever imagined a place where Vulcans and vampires get along? Where wizards and wookies can be themselves? Welcome to Comic-Con San Diego. What started as a fringe comic book convention for 500 fans has grown into the pop culture event of the year that influences every form of entertainment, now attended by over 140,000. Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan's Hope explores this cultural phenomenon by following the lives of seven attendees as they descend upon the ultimate geek mecca. Includes interviews with Stan Lee, Joss Whedon, Frank Miller and Matt Groening.

I know that Joss was going to be involved with this but how much was he actually? Anyone know?
Was there not a way more obvious place to premier this?
I wish they'd release the trailer shown at Comic-Con.
I note that the press release misspells "Wookiees".
dannyrobertson- Such as where?
Simon: There was a trailer for this at Comic-Con? Where/when?
Glad this is finally coming out! I'd think if it's premiering in little over a month we'd be seeing some kind of trailer soon...

Well, y'know, Comic-Con. ;)
As someone from the Toronto area, this sounds awesome. I hope to get tickets when itís playing here. Perhaps even tickets to the premiere, but I imagine those might be hard to get. I wonder if Joss will be around for the premiere?

My understanding is Joss is one of the executive producers of the movie. What does that mean to his involvement, I have no idea. At a minimum I think there is an interview with Joss in the movie.

Also in the companion book that is already out, Joss writes one of the several introductions.

I've had very little problem for most films getting tickets for the first showings buying them when the individual TIFF tickets go on sale. Though this could be an exception.
I've gone to a number single TIFF screenings without problems, but it really depends on the film. I have heard of tickets to specific movies being incredibly hard to get tickets for. This could be one of those films, but I'm not sure. Depends on how the TIFF community as well as the general Toronto geek community reacts to this movie.
