Angry Goat Productions Has Canceled ‘Outlander Live’ and (Probably) ‘LA Moonfest’

We’ve talked a lot about the ongoing drama surrounding Angry Goat Productions‘ Sailor Moon themed event originally scheduled to take place in Los Angeles this weekend. First we looked into accusations on social media that the event was a scam. What we discovered was Angry Goat Productions and its owner Ray Jelley have a reputation for scheduling events and then canceling them. Then all signs pointed towards the Sailor Moon events getting canceled, only to have Angry Goat Productions turn around and relaunch the festivities at an insane price tag.

We apparently were wrong though.

Over the last couple of weeks, Angry Goat Productions has launched a new event website, added new information to their company site, and launched a new Facebook event for “LA Moonfest.” The event is scheduled for the same weekend CULA originally occupied (May 13-14), though at a new venue — the Doubletree Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.

And man is it overpriced. Continue reading Angry Goat Productions Relaunches (Overpriced) Sailor Moon Event, Being Sued By Hobbit Cast Member
