(that would be me) will be tearing their hair out for sure now. It was revealed during
the Coins collecting panel that Celebration Europe will have another 12 medallions

foreign figures and looked quite cool!

There was alot to do at Celebration IV, but when you needed a break from the crowds, lines, and general hecticness of the exhibition hall, the Fan Fair Hall was the place to go! There was plenty of room to walk around and not feel so cramped, not to mention the awesome creations at every corner! The large scaled X-Wing took center stage in the middle, with the huge diorama of the forest moon of Endor spread out across the floor. There was much to see, so stop by our gallery
to see some of the Fan Fair sites!

There's been alot of buzz over the animated series photos and trailer showing up here
, and during the Star Wars
Animated TV Behing-The-Scenes panel we got answers! Supervising Director Dave Filoni was presented with the question about the legitimacy of this site and the video and said that they have nothing to do with it and it is completely fan made. Well, let's hope that we can see more from this, because they have done a fantastic job! However
, after seeing the newest trailer on the big screen at the event, the animation is nothing
compared to what Lucas Animation is doing!
Posted by Chuck | May 27, 2007 at 06:26 PM EDT |
We were teased a few weeks ago with the debut of the poster from the upcoming animated series, and today at the Star Wars
Animated TV Behind-the-Scenes panel we were treated to the world premiere of the trailer for the series! Hands down, this was the most exciting event of CIV, and they were given permission to show this trailer from George Lucas just days before the convention started! The trailer was simply incredible, and Starwars.com has wasted no time in giving you a chance to see it too
, minus the booming THX sound system...
