From BleedingCool, by way of RegularTweetsUK on Twitter, Rick and Morty will have a panel at this year’s Annecy Animation Festival. Based out of Annecy, France, the festival was created in the 1960s and is held every June and is touted as “a competition between animated films of various techniques… classified in various categories” from Feature Films, Short Films, etc. Sounds like the animation equivalent of Cannes, to be honest.
According to BC, the panel will be hosted on Wednesday, June 14th with the panel consisting of Co-EP Steve Levy, Spencer Grammer who voices Summer, as well as Adult Swim President, Michael Ouweleen.
