We saved the best for last. The surprise hit of the show was the unannounced The Mandalorian Experience exhibit. This exhibit was revealed at the opening day Lucasfilm’s Studio Showcase panel and features props and set pieces from The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. This wasn’t just any display, it was incredibly immersive and impressive how much they brought in to showcase. Click through to see our massive gallery and walk-through video of the exhibit!

It’s nearly time again for another Star Wars Celebration. I will be heading west tomorrow morning to begin JTA’s coverage. I will be working some shifts at the Kentucky Star Wars Collector Club booth (booth 2682) at various times throughout the event while doing JTA coverage, so be sure to stop by and say hi!
I’ve put together a portal page for all of the upcoming galleries to be collected in one place once they are posted. You can find a quick link graphic in the top right corner of our page for easy access. I will compile the day’s galleries each evening on that page, but you can also keep an eye on the front page for the real-time gallery uploads throughout each day.
Safe travels to everyone attending, and May the Force Be With You!

If you go to SDCC don’t expect too many news about the upcoming Star Wars movie. It has been revealed today that there will be no The Rise of Skywalker panel at SDCC. JJ Abrams and crew will not be in San Diego. They thought of ways to top the The Force Awakens panel from 2015, but couldn’t figure out a way to achieve that. So instead, they will save everything for D23, which will take place August 23-25. The question now is if a new trailer will also be revealed during D23, it would make sense.
