Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Star Wars Celebration Orlando ’17 Day 2

Welcome to this Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels Celebration Report. The first full day of Celebration has concluded. Dennis shares his thoughts on the big day as the Maker returns.

Forces of Destiny

Before Celebration could officially kick off, there was animation news. No, it had nothing to do with Rebels. Instead, it is all about the heroines of Star Wars. Get more details on Forces of Desitny in this episode.

The Maker Returns

The marquee event of the first day of Celebration was the 40th Anniversary panel. The event started with a bang as the Maker returns. After a wonderful introduction by Kathleen Kennedy, George Lucas took the stage with Warwick Davis to recount forty years of Star Wars memories with an all-star list of guests. Even Harrison Ford showed up for this one.

Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates

After the 40th Anniversary Panel, Dennis took in the Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates panel on the Galaxy Stage. This panel featured Pablo Hidalgo and Dave Filoni. The pair recounted design decisions for many of the most popular characters from The Clones Wars and Rebels.

RetroZap! Party

The day didn’t end when the clock struck seven. Indeed, the festivities just moved to the RetroZap! meet-up. Dennis outlines some of the events from the RetroZap! party after Celebration was done for the day.
