Ladies and Gentlemen, The Droids of Star Wars Celebration Orlando.

And now something a little special. We grabbed pictures of all the coolest droids that we saw at Celebration this year. If this gets a lot of attention, maybe a Droids of Celebration Orlando calendar is in order. Nah, that’s probably too much, but then again…

Let’s Talk About The First Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser!

When this teaser debuted at Star Wars Celebration Orlando I was on the show floor looking at a $2,200 Jawa action figure (and then laugh-sobbing at the fact that I had the same one when I was a kid). There was a stage on one side of the floor for The Star Wars Show Live that had a huge viewing screen. As people started to notice the new trailer was playing on it, they stopped what they were doing and payed attention. By about 15 seconds in, the whole convention had stopped and were all staring at the screen. It was a sight to behold. I know all of the convention goers were there for Star Wars-related reasons, but this still shows how effective the trailer is. Even the merchants that were there to sell us $2,200 pieces of our childhood stopped hocking Wookie backpacks and Vader plate sets to watch in relative awe.

On top of all that, it looks good! I like The Force Awakens but I can see it’s flaws. It has too many call backs and feels all too similar to A New Hope. But the small amount of footage we see here in The Last Jedi looks fresh and new. It got me excited to reconnect with these new characters on their journey with the Skywalkers. I will say that there is a bit of an Empire Strikes Back feel thematically to the story, but it doesn’t seem to be beat for beat. I think a lot of this has to do with director Rian Johnson‘s vision taking over from where J.J. Abrams left us.

Ok, enough stalling, Let’s Talk About The First Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser! Continue reading

Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 Cosplay!

There was so much to see but what always catches our eye is the amazing cosplay from the fans. Here’s some of the best that we saw and also an easy link to follow to view them on imgur.

Watch the Heartfelt Tribute to Carrie Fisher from Star Wars Celebration Orlando

Earlier today Billie Lourde came out on stage dressed as Princess Leia to pay tribute to her late mother after the 40 Years of Star Wars panel. It was touching, sweet, and funny. Following her speech the crowd was treated to the excellent tribute video above. The video was even simulcast onto the showroom floor so everyone in attendance of the convention that couldn’t get into the panel (ahem *me*) could see it. The whole floor came to a halt to watch and pay their collective respects to the late, great Ms. Fisher. It was a wonderful way to kick off Celebration.
