Eine Woche vor Beendigung der Dreharbeiten zu Django, in der noch Szenen mit Jonah Hill als Mitglied der Regulatoren (eine Vor- Bürgerkrieg Version des KKK) zu realsieren sind, stellte Tarantino mit seiner fast vollstänigen Crew seinen neuesten Film Django Unchained bei der ComicCon vor.
Das Panel wurde von Anthony Breznican von Entertainment Weekly moderiert ,der den Film als „verdrehtes, blutige Märchen“ bezeichnete, bevor er Jamie Foxx, Walton Goggins, Don Johnson Christoph Waltz (lange Haare und buschiger, weißer Bart, der fast aussah wie ein falschser Weihnachtsmann),Kerry Washington, und Tarantino vorstellte.
Der Auftritt von Kerry Washington, die in dem Film Brunhilde Shaft, ein Vorfahrin von John Shaft, darstellt , verführte QT dazu, den Titelsong dem begeisterten Publikum vorzusingen.
Nach der historischen Genauigkeit seines Films befragt, antwortete Tarantino, dass die Zeit vor dem Bürgerkrieg im Süden der USA kaum surrealer und gruseliger dargestellt werden könnte, als sie es in Wirklichkeit war.
Der Film erzählt die Geschichte eines anfangs anonymen Sklaven in Ketten der später zu einem heldenhaften Helden wird.

Foxx aufgewachsen in Texas, fühlte sich an „gewisse Parallele Erfahrungen“ Django erinnert.
Jamie Foxx talked about he approached his role in the film: ”“In Texas, being a kid, it was racially charged to be honest with you,” he said. “Being called ‘nigger’ as young kid growing up, by grown people, it’s something I had to deal with, coming from the south. Having that done to me, I was able to grasp that in the script.”
Waltz fand , dass der ursprünglich den amerikanischen Western kopierende Spaghetti Western hier eine begeisterte Hommage findet.
Kerry Washington’s thoughts on her character: ”What makes her strong is her belief in love and that she is deserving of that love in a time where black women weren’t even afforded the luxury of that fantasy,” and “She is the princess who is rescued from the tower and particularly for a black woman, that’s not really an experience that we’ve had historically.” Washington also revealed that she learned to speak German for the role (and credited Christoph Waltz as one of her teachers).
To prepare for the role, Tarantino recommended that Kerry Washington watch The Flame of New Orleans and The Spoilers.

Synopsis
The reel starts with Django chained to six other slaves, all of whom have been walking for many miles, and been whipped and beaten many times.

Along comes Dr. Shultz, riding a cart with a giant tooth on top. He’s looking for Django specifically. After introducing his horse, he blows away the chain gang bosses. He frees the seven slaves, but talks Django into coming with him with a promise finding the Brittle Brothers, the men who are worth a large bounty and whom Django can identify. Django is also given the opportunity to find his wife, who he has been separated from. Along the way, Dr. Shultz plans on visiting every plantation, bounty hunting.

So, Dr. S must teach his protégé how to become a bounty hunter. But apparently back then, bounties were for bodies, not returned inmates. Dr. S tells Django, while showing him how to shoot, „Once you get smooth, then you get fast.“

They visit Big Daddy’s plantation with Django posing as Dr. Shultz’s valet, and for some reason he’s dressed in a bright blue suit and huge white bow tie. Big Daddy, in his all-white suit and silver Fu Manchu, invites Shultz inside and has one his slaves show Django the grounds. What he’s really looking for, though, is a Brittle brother.

He finds a Brittle brother who is about to whip a slave, and Django’s bounty hunting prowess becomes obvious. While blasting him dead, Django says, „I like the way you die, boy.“
