In one of the smartest and fan friendly moves in history (Okay, maybe not history), loads of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim content, including the opening ceremonies with J.J. and Kathleen Kennedy, will be live streamed from the official SW site! They’ll also have exclusive interviews with cast from the saga on top of panel coverage, so if you wanted to stay home and catch up on all the action in your pjs, now you totally have the option to do so.
The bravest of SWCA attendees have already started lining up for the opening ceremonies Wednesday evening and it has paid off for them: one fan, Zachary Kelsey, happened to run into J.J. Abrams and got a picture, while various reports reveal JJ/KK have pitched in for pizza for the masses waiting overnight for the big kickoff event. Talk about caring for your fans!
Other fans were just getting their badges for the Celebration weekend and noticed a listing for an The Force Awakens exhibit, scheduled to open starting at noon on Thursday and 10:00 am for the rest of the convention. It’ll include glimpses into props, costumes, and more used in production of the film and it would be doubly cool to check out after seeing a new TFA trailer on Thursday morning (fingers crossed).
And in the gaming world, EA Star Wars’ Instagram account has been teasing an image of a trooper from their upcoming Star Wars Battlefront (here’s the full picture). While I jumped to conclusions on it being an underwater trooper, Andrew Gaultier from Eleven-Thirty Eight helped me realize the more obvious choice: zero-g troopers. Let the speculation begin until the Friday morning panel.
Can’t wait to see everyone on the show floor and experience whatever other surprises may come!
