    Cracking news, this year just gets better. I made right choice upgrading to a VIP ticket.

    Great to get AOTC in 3D given it was meant to happen this year anyway.

    The schedule has been updated with time and location for Attack of the Clones 3D.
    All screenings will be at the Digital Stage in "Halle Essen".
    Unfortunately "Halle Essen" is not (yet) on any official map, but I have been told that it is a hall inside the exhibition centre.

    Friday: 12:30
    Saturday: 11:00
    Sunday: 10:30

    The documentary Star Warriors, about the Star Wars-themed Rose Parade in Pasadena, will be shown on the Behind-the-scenes Stage on Friday at 15:00.

    I was thinking about going to the 3D screening, but I had hoped/expected it would be placed at the end of the day after convention hours. I am not sure if I wanna spend 2 hours during convention watching a movie I have already seen - even if it is in 3D.

    No different than spending 2 hours queueing for autographs or wandering around looking at stands that sell stuff you've seen most of at every other event.
    You get to see a movie that has not been and might not be commercially released, which is something to brag about to those who only saw TPM 3D.

    Plus it's the atmosphere, watching ROTJ & AOTC amongst and audience of fans is much better than seeing it in a cinema surrounded by regular people

    Absolutely, my best experiences at any theater were the midnight viewings of the PT. Only the fans showed up for those and it was awesome! I can only imagine how a packed theater of fans from Celebration will be. I am definitely attending.

    Plus you apparently get a unique pair of 3D glasses, as a collector I can't miss out on such a limited thing.

    I'll be going to see it for sure at least one of the days, just need to see what it clashes with each of the days.

    Apparently "Halle Essen" is a typo in the program. The German name is "Saal Essen" with English translation "Hall Essen". It is a larger conference room located on the upper floor. The stairs are in or close to the main entrance hallway.

    I see your points on the movie thing.
    I just can't shake thinking my time could be better spend, than watching a movie I have already seen.
    But as it is right now, I won't be spending time getting autographs, so maybe I will end up watching all three screenings just to pass time.8-}

    I wonder if the "Star Warriors" documentary is any different than the one on the Bluray...

    I think I saw somewhere, that it will contain deleted footage, that are not on the Blu-Ray. Though I don't remember where, I get news from emails, facebook and twitter.

    The "Tickets" link on all pages are for the entire convention. I assume that all screenings are included.

    More screenings:
    • Clone Wars. Darth Maul story arc: Episodes “Revival”, “Eminence”, “Shades of Reason”, and “The Lawless” edited together into a movie. Introduced by Dave Filoni.
      Digital Stage, Friday 17:00 - 19:00 and Saturday 17:00 - 19:00.
    • Restored! The Lost Michael Parbot Documentary.A rare documentary about The Empire Strikes Back by French filmmaker Michael Parbot. French language.
      Collector's Stage. Saturday 17:30 - 19:00.

    You're right of course. That's logical, thanks for the heads up.

    I've seen all the Maul stuff from TCW, though if Filoni is introducing it and maybe doing a Q&A after I might attend if only to ask him what his plans for Maul were before the show was cancelled.

    I wonder if the French documentary will have any subtitles, my French is definitely not good enough to be able to understand a whole documentary in the language.

    Damn this tight scheduling! Great thing of course that there's so much to do, but I would've liked to the see the 3D version of AOTC, just not when the screenings overlap with some very cool Q&As every single day. I'd say sitting in on Kathleen Kennedy's first Celebration appearance for instance handily beats a (however exclusive) screening of my least favorite SW film.

    Still, too bad...

    Exactly, me and my friends can only go on Saturday, because we all have young kids and I really hate that we can't see AOTC because KK is having her stage show (and hopefully shares some EPVII news)
