The first day of San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is in the books, and there are three more days to go! There's so much breaking news and panels that it's almost impossible to stay on top of everything. Fortunately, the SYFY WIRE team has come out in force to cover one of the most important cons of the year.

Join host Jackie Jennings as she welcomes editor-in-chief Adam Swiderski and news editor Alexis Loinaz as they go over the biggest news out of Comic-Con Day 1. By consensus, the top story was easily the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars for additional episodes on Disney's upcoming streaming service. Adam shared the way that the announcement was saved until the end of the Clone Wars 10th anniversary panel and how the crowd reacted to that bombshell.

The next biggest was the first footage from Doctor Who Season 11, with Jodie Whittaker's Thirteenth Doctor in action. Fans only had a brief glimpse of her during last year's Doctor Who Christmas special, but now we have a much better idea of what to expect from the new Doctor. "Brilliant!"

We also sent actor and noted sci-fi fan Orlando Jones out on the streets of San Diego to interview fans and get them to weigh in on our latest geek debates. Additionally, you can check out highlights from the activation centers located around the convention and San Diego's Gaslamp district.

There's much more to see, so watch the entire video below and stay with us on SYFY WIRE for more Comic-Con coverage in the days to come.
