    This thread is where you can link to different stories related to Celebration 2 from the media, not just news and reports from Star Wars fan sites.

    The first is an E! News Live report from the Celebration 2 convention. It features brief interviews with Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Daniel Logan and Temuera Morrison. There's also footage of a wedding proposal!
    You can download the footage (10.5 Mb, 1:42, QuickTime 5) [link=http://download.theforce.net/e_celebration2.mov]here[/link]

    I also know that CNN had some coverage, but I can't find the link to download that video.

    I saw some coverage on local Indy stations while I was in my hotel room.

    Have you seen anything else on TV? Do you have a link to a newspaper article discussing C2? This is the place to put it.

    I was interviewed by the local news, but didn't get to see it. :(
    Anyone see a girl with long brown hair wearing Padme's picnic dress on the news?

    Yah, there was a TON of coverage of the CII in Indy, but probably not much elsewhere. :-\

    I became friends with girls at the Celebration and one of them was taped by 6 news channels and over 20 home videos. :p Just from hanging around them I got in the background of a whole bunch of stuff. :p

    The the two I hung out with are the two on the right, and the one on the far right is specifically the one who got on all the news channels.

    By the way, when I woke up on Friday morning and turned on the news, the weatherman was using a lightsaber during his forecast. I thought that was pretty cool.

    By the way, the CNN footage I found was only a couple of minutes long. It looked like it was recorded starting in the middle of the report. The majority of it showed the Rubies booth. I didn't see a Plo Koon in it, but again, I think the beginning part wasn't recorded.

    You know, I remember those guys from TechTV being at the FF table on Saturday and talking to someone from FF (can't remember if it was you or not).

    So, what network carries TechTV, or is it a web-cast?

    TechTV is a channel that is carried by many cable and satellite providers.

    I found CNN footage earlier this week, but I can't remember where I found it. It may have been over at swsotf.net before the site went down.

    The Extended Play on TechTV was pretty good. Obviously they spent most of the time hanging out near the LucasArts booth and the computer gaming area getting all the gaming info they needed. There was a little bit at the beginning where they showed footage of a lot of fans and the whole convention hall, but after that they mostly talked to LucasArts folks and did game reviews.
