Sony Pictures launched its WonderCon film presentation panels today with a look at the upcoming The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, based on the popular fantasy book series by Cassandra Clare.

Clare joined stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower and Kevin Zegers on stage to discuss the adaptation and revealed that she herself gets to cameo in one scene. Fans should be on the lookout for her wearing cat ears during Magnus Bane's (Godfrey Gao) party.

The panel saw the debut of the film's new trailer which plays heavily on the theme of worlds colliding, showing Clary's life before becoming aware of the Shadowhunters at a nightclub. There's also quite a bit of narration by Hodge Starkweather (Jared Harris), explaining some of the rules of the fantasy world.

The trailer includes a few scenes played for jokes, including one where an old friend of Clary's sees her in the street clad in her Shadowhunter gear. Even though she's surrounded by the rest of her team, the guy can't see them and remarks about how different she looks.

"The werewolves are here to save us," says one of the characters, pausing to consider his words, "I never thought I would say that."

As for the future of the franchise, Collins is eager to return for sequels.

"If you'll have me as Clary," she laughs, "I'm willing to be a redhead for awhile."

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones will hit theaters August 23. Check back soon for our exclusive WonderCon interview with Collins.
