It?s no shock that the numbers are lower for this round ? in addition to the economy, the late announcement and a less-than-inspiring locale, August is smack dab in the middle of convention season ? most notably in that CV was bracketed by the biggest cons of all: San Diego Comic-Con in July and Atlanta?s Dragon*Con coming up on Labor Day weekend. Both are huge draws for much of the same audience, and we even had a Jader or two choose D*C over CV. Really, between all that, 28,000 doesn?t look all that shabby! Plus it's been five years since the prequel trilogy ended, and the films are the most popular aspect of SW for those who just aren't dedicated.
