    Hi all!
    my association, ere2 ( has inteviewed Patrice Girod,the French Star Wars magazine chief redactor.
    a few sample:

    et a props des fans?

    ére2: Quels sont vos projets pour la sortie de l'Episode II ?

    Patrice Girod : J'aimerais organiser une convention en rassemblant, si possible, plusieurs milliers de fans costumés, autour de Lucas, McCallum et des acteurs. C?est un souhait personnel, et j?essayerai de le réaliser. Et cela permettrai de montrer aux médias le bon côté du fandom et surtout de montrer la puissance du fan club Star Wars.
    [Ndlr : nous aurons l'occasion d'en reparler sur le site et dans le magazine]


    and what about fans?

    R2 : Have you some projects for Episode II release?

    PG : i wish to organise a convention to gather thems (the fans), if possible, thousand of fans costumed, around Lucas, McCallum and actors.
    This is a personal wish, and i will try to realise it. And this will allow médias to see the fandom good side, mostly to show the power of the Star Wars (French) fan club .


    so what to you think about it?
    i must say that i have invited all the fan who could, to a costumed gathering for the next halloween night at the Disneyland Paris, the 27 October, and it seems that the Lucasfilm magazine will keep an eye on it, maybe it will be a test?
    so the most people there will here, the better it will be.

    (i appologize for my so bad english :eek:( )

    Don't you think it's possible to coordinate it with the all-european fanforce meeting that is being planned?

    We are not sure the Convention will take place.

    If it takes place, though, it will be a great opportunity as far as organising is concerned. I am sure "they" can get the whole thing together (accomodation, transports, tickets, events, etc.) which would be quite difficult for us mere fans to do so...

    Keep us informed!!! :) LOL
