The pre-Celebration festivities have begun! We’re on the scene at Star Wars Celebration Europe, where I’ve spent the night with Quizmaster Joe in the line to get wristbands for the Rogue One panel happening at 4pm BST/11am ET/8am PT today. And it’s been a fun evening, if a bit more subdued compared to last year’s queue for The Force Awakens panel at Celebration Anaheim.
In the podcast for this morning, I’m recapping the events of the evening, including the Lucasfilm pizza delivery, cosplayers, podcasters, folks from other countries to whom we’ve chatted, and more. If you want the full experience, swing on over to our Twitter channel, where we’re broadcasting live video throughout the weekend, and where you can see snippets of the scene overnight inside London’s ExCel Centre, where Celebration Europe is taking place. (If you prefer Facebook or Instagram, there you go.)
This podcast is brought to you by the talented folks at Zebra Imaging, makers of the incredible Star Wars 3D Holograms. The information contained in each of their exclusive Star Wars images is equivalent to the amount of space a feature film would take on your hard drive, which is what leads to such dynamic results. Check out all four Star Wars holograms in their Alpha Edition, and start out with the bundle you like best – Han in carbonite, Kylo Ren on the attack, Luke evading Vader and his wingmen, or R2-D2 revealing Princess Leia’s urgent message.
