Warner Bros. announced that they’ll be holding a Middle-earth: Shadow of War panel at San Diego Comic Con this year, and that meant they unveiled more of the game’s voice cast. While it was already known that Troy Baker would be reprising his role as Talion, a bunch of talented names were confirmed to be part of the Shadow of Mordor sequel. Laura Bailey, Silicon Valley‘s Kumail Nanjiani, and The Walking Dead‘s Pollyanna McIntosh will join Baker on stage for the July 21 panel.

Here’s the full details on the upcoming San Diego Comic Con panel for Middle-earth Shadow of War:
