SWPAS Guide To Celebration Anaheim Revised


10:00—Panel with JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, and “Special Guests” (Celebration Stage +4 additional stages)

Promises to be a Hall H style clusterfark with desperate fans spending the night in a convention hall in the hopes of getting into at least an overflow room. I wouldn’t have worried about it but for the fact 4-day badges are sold out or very close to selling out, which has never happened at a previous Celebration. Let’s put it this way…if 25,000 people go on Thursday there’s a good chance you’ll get to see the panel if you really want to see it, no matter what time you show up. If 40,000 people go on Thursday, I hope you’re in line right now. Frankly I’m annoyed they are supposedly simulcasting this on some street in London where pigeons and winos can see the trailer while you can be right there in the convention center and not see a damn thing in spite of paying $150 to be there. They should have given out tickets online instead of this campout malarkey and opened the con to everyone at 10 a.m..

Shopping update:

Check out the sweet lightsaber skirt and matching tee from Her Universe!

Still not a lot of prequel merch. Bummer.

    I’ve had my eye on that lightsaber skirt. And yes, I hear you about lining up the night before. I did it for George and Jon Stewart (deja vu hoo? said this before, didn’t I?) but nothing here. Move along. Perhaps to join the pigeons and winos.

    Still flabbergasted that they are not streaming the very first panel on StarWars.com Hello??? it’s 2015? So we are simulcasting on the streets of London for free but if you want to see it in the US you have to pay at a theater to watch… are you effing kidding me???

    Why the heck LFL isn’t streaming most of these panels online for fans (even through a pay service) is beyond me. Fans will still make the trek… this is not rocket science.

    Just a goofy 20th Century mindset… almost all this info gets blasted on social media immediately anyway so why not get ahead of the power curve and use you freaking website like major corporations like Apple, Microsoft, and Sony do to stream live presentations.

    For a company that is filled with a bunch of youngish, hipsters, the company isn’t very hip and is still stuck in the past in terms of promotion. But hey, what do I know…

  3. madmediaman Says:

    Spoke too soon. Looks like Celebration panels will be live streamed…. but with a massive caveat… YOU HAVE TO BE A VERIZON CUSTOMER… really?!?!?!?


  4. madmediaman Says:

    Ok, more clarification… looks like starwars.com is live streaming certain panels. Verizon appears to be getting exclusive clips and other panels. Well, I guess it’s better than a kick in the teeth.

  5. BansheeGun Says:

    Jeez, so much going on! Seeing TPM and AOTC 3D listed on there brings warm feelings to my heart.

  6. madmediaman Says:

    Have a great time Lazy!

    Sorry, it’s not embeddable, for obvious reasons. But if you search the Tommy Gee Redux on Vimeo, you’ll find what you’re looking for:)
