star wars celebrationWow! What an amazing four day experience. Adam and I had a great time exploring our first Star Wars Celebration, both together and separately. This recap will focus on Friday through Sunday as I previously posted on Thursday’s crazy events.

For myself I think that Friday was, by in far, my favorite of the four days. Why? Because I had the pleasure of sitting in on the panel ” A Date With A Princess”. This was Carrie Fisher’s panel, as a fan girl and true Star Wars nerd this was the highlight of my whole weekend. She did not give away any secrets about the upcoming movie, however, she did share stories of filming the originals.  Carrie is a funny, charismatic, and candid individual that truly loves her fans.  She proved this by signing autographs, taking pictures, and taking an interest in the fans questions.  An entertaining side note is that she had her dog on the stage with her and wherever she went he followed, even to meet the fans. Princess Leia on and off the screen continues to be an idol and inspiration to her fans. Continue reading

To be honest for Adam and myself (Andrea), Star Wars week started for us Tuesday night at the Dodgers Baseball game. The stadium was invaded with Jedi, Storm Troopers and Darth Vader. They even gave out free T-shirts to commemorate the night.

So, now, onward to the first day of Star Wars Celebration and our further adventures into geekdom!

First things first;

This place was in chaos this morning!  There were lines for panels, lines for registration and more lines to get to the exhibit hall.

People, aliens, Storm Troopers and “Slave Leias” were every where.

As you can see, it would have been hard for anyone to miss “the droids they were looking for”.

Once we got inside to the exhibit hall, it was sensory overload. There were booths for taking pictures in your favorite Star Wars Scene to buying your favorite toys, so much to see and so much to do it was hard to decide where to truly begin.

I will be posting updates and photos here throughout the four day experience as we wander, explore, see all we can see and do all we can do.  It will be an exhausting amazing adventure and we will bring it all to you from our point of view!

More to come later…
