The ceremony is set for Friday, September 13 at the historic Avalon Theater in Los Angeles.

Leading the way with 14 Saturn Award film nominations is Marvel/Walt Disney Studios’ Avengers: Endgame, and Walt Disney Studios’ Aladdin in second place with nine. For television and streaming, HBO’s Game of Thrones leads with nine nominations, with The Haunting of Hill House and The Walking Dead following second with six nominations each. As a studio overall, Disney leads with 44 nominations among 12 film and TV projects across its various companies, Marvel, Walt Disney Studios, Pixar, Lucasfilm and the Disney Channel.

Six films are competing in the Animated Film category: The Grinch, How to Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World, The Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse (also nominated in Comic-To-Motion Picture) and Toy Story 4.
