    Finally here's the details:


    On Monday, Sept. 27, Star Wars fans officially can get their plans underway for Celebration III, the event that promises to be the most electrifying Star Wars extravaganza ever. Tickets for the 4-day festival, slated for April 21 - 24, 2005 in Indianapolis, are scheduled to go on sale at approximately 12 noon PDT at starwarscelebration.com. Reservations for hotels in Indianapolis for Celebration III also will be available starting September 27, exclusively for those who purchase tickets for the event.
    Scheduled just four weeks before the worldwide premiere of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, Celebration III has been eagerly anticipated by fans since Celebration II entertained more than 26,000 in May, 2002. Celebration III promises to be even more exciting, with more guests, more activities, and more events spread over the entire Indiana Convention Center -- over half a million square feet of Star Wars!

    FREE Exclusive Vader for Advance Sale 4-Day Badge Holders!
    Fans who purchase a 4-day admission badge for Celebration III from the official site, and choose to have the badge shipped in advance, can receive the show's first exclusive collectible -- a Darth Vader "3-in-1 topper." The topper, featuring Darth Vader's signature mask and helmet, is for car antennas, pencils, and key chains, and is free for 4-day badge holders for only $2.95 shipping and handling. Vader toppers will be shipped with admission badges in 2005, close to the start of the show.

    Once at Celebration, collectors can pick up a set of three other exclusive Star Wars toppers, complete with a display case. The display case will be designed to hold four toppers, but the only way to get the fourth -- Darth Vader -- is with a 4-day advance sale Celebration III badge. The Darth Vader toppers are limited to one per 4-day badge purchased in advance, adult or child.

    Join the Official Star Wars Fan Club For CIII Benefits!
    Members of the Official Star Wars Fan Club will enjoy special benefits at Celebration III, such as early admission to the Convention Center for specific exhibits and shopping, and exclusive access to the Fan Club Lounge. We've improved benefits since Celebration II, and intend to make Club membership more worthwhile than ever. Join the Fan Club, then purchase your ticket as a member when registration starts. Members will receive a special Star Wars Fan Club lanyard with their badge purchase, and that will be their passport to benefits at Celebration III. Members of official international Star Wars Fan Clubs (France, Germany, Mexico, Spain, and the United Kingdom) also qualify for Fan Club benefits at Celebration III. Please check with your official club for more information coming soon.

    "Friends & Family Passes" for Fan Club Members Ordering Online!
    In addition to the lanyard, Fan Club members who purchase a 4-day admission badge from starwarscelebration.com, and have it shipped to them in advance, will receive four passes that will allow them to bring non-members to events and exhibits during exclusive Fan Club hours. Each pass will be good for one early admission to the convention center during "Fan Club Only" hours, or for one admission to the Fan Club Lounge. Passes will be collected at the doors. Look for more details on this and other Fan Club benefits this fall on starwars.com and starwarscelebration.com.

    Indianapolis Hotels
    Many who are eager to travel to Celebration III have been curious about hotel room availability. There are a number of rooms held specifically for Celebration III attendees. A hotel code will be emailed to purchasers after they order their Celebration III admission badges. This code will allow them to reserve their room online as long as rooms are available. More information about hotel locations in downtown Indianapolis can be found at the Indiana Convention Center website.

    Star Wars Celebration III will be the center of the Star Wars universe April 21 - 24, 2005. Don't miss the fun! Register starting September 27, 2004 at starwarscelebration.com.

    yeah 1 o'clock our time, same as board time.
    Can't wait, are you ordering the Darth Vadar topper?
    I fear the website will be overloaded with people trying to get on and it will be hard to go and buy them.

    to order your passes you need to go here

    It looks like tables will be made available to selected fan groups at the convention to promote their group, not sure if anyone would want to do this seeing as then we'd have to miss out on other things going on at the convention. Looks like the convention is open till midnight everynight except sunday, I didn't realize things would be going on so late at the convention centre, you barely get out of their and you need to be getting in line again to get in :p

    Looks like fan club members who order their passes in advance and have them mailed to them will receive four passes that will allow them to bring non-members to events and exhibits during exclusive Fan Club hours. Each pass will be good for one early admission to the convention center during "Fan Club Only" hours, or for one admission to the Fan Club Lounge. Passes will be collected at the doors.
    Kinda bad because they are one use only but for at least one day a bunch of people can get in early. Not there is probably much point going and getting in fan club line if everyone else is in the regular entry line unless it gives us a chance to go save space in line ups inside before everyone else gets in.
    I suppose its too early to be thinking about such things :p

    That table thing might be an idea... even if we dont' have anyone there, we can have a big "EDMONTON" sign and some flyers, just in case somebody from Alberta wanders by... :)

    Wow. I hope this isn't a sign as to how the whole convention is going to go... You'd think that they'd make sure everything was set up properly before pre-selling.

    I've already registered, but now I can't get back to the site. :mad:

    I'll try again this evening...

    Man i couldn't afford this even if i wanted to. DAMN! I just blew money on new camera and some software. But then again, it is a new camera...and software. This one sounds like it will be a blast.

    got my ticket, there was no problem getting through now, so how do we get them if they don't mail outside the US

    edit, I see we have to pick them up there, thats going to be a nightmare, all those people having to go pick up passes beforehand, i had to cancel my darth vadar topper because it says you only can get it if your having your pass shipped to you which we can't because we don't live in the US :(
