    Ya'know, I'd actually really like to see Hayden Christensen appear at one of these in the future. Preferably with Ewan McGregor I'd imagine that would be an awesome panel/fan photo shoot!
    Ewan is probably to "busy" but if he is to return as Obi-Wan they would probably get him there. And Hayden seems to be somewhat returning to the public-eye after doing all the publicity for "90 minutes in heaven"

    I'd love to see Hayden as well, but I feel as if the current marketing climate from SW is about forgetting the PT and stick to the safe OT tie-ins.

    This is getting crazy. It's just over 4 weeks away and we know practically nothing!

    That said, the new VR thing they posted on the official site the other day looks all kinds of awesome so maybe it's a good job I haven't already planned all of my time to be in the autograph lines ;)

    I really hope we get something on the star wars show tomorrow. If not we could sue RedPop for false marketing! (haha) On their official web page it says: [​IMG]
    Which is plural. Mark Hamill is the only annonced signer. They've not even confirmed Fisher is signing! And one month excatly is tomorrow.

    One can only hope!

    Something has to be coming this week. Like you say, 15th is exactly 1 month, this Friday is exactly 4 weeks, they have to announce something!

    What email is that - I'd quite like to do the same. It's ridiculous that we are a month away from it and still no sign of anything.

    The email I sent and got ONE reply to was: publicity@lucasfilm.com

    The canned reply on April 22 was:

    Hi Ken,

    Thank you for your patience on a response! As we get closer to the event, information about guests and programming will continue to be announced; you may have seen that Warwick Davis was just announced as the celebrity host for the Celebration Stage! This is quite common for events of this nature.

    Thanks again for reaching out, we’re glad to know you’re as excited for Celebration as we are!

    All the best,

    The Lucasfilm Publicity Team

    Mary Franklin was fantastic at customer service when she worked for Lucasfilm. I remember mailing her about an issue for Essen. Personally I'd say she went futher then necssary to ensure that there weren't gonna be a problem.
    Now that she's with ReedPop, who knows? Maybe Reedpop dislike customer service? (hah)

    I was really expecting something this afternoon to be honest. Like something - anything - at all to push this event forward. Right now it feels like it will be a 3-Day flea market themed around Star Wars, rather than a celebration of the fandom.

    I'm happy with some more announcements, and love the Art Show pieces. Cool that I can finally see A New Hope in a theatrical setting. Getting excited for SWCE once again!
