    I get the feeling that if they're parsing TLJ content out between two days, then the opening panel for Celebration is going to have the BTS Reel and the actual panel will feature the first Teaser.

    Interesting.

    Is there a possibility that they also want to take time for something special with the passing of Carrie Fisher?
    Spreading TLJ stuff over two days to build up the hype, keep more people interested in the live stream on youtube, but also being able to give time for a Carrie Fisher 'memorial'.


    Either way, everything they want to do is fine by me. I can't attend Celebration, i'll be following everything via the stream and here :p

    I hope no one really listened to those knuckle heads on Jedi Council advising that the best day to attend is Thursday, 13th. Some poor souls can only attend one day, and the JC panel advised to go on the first day....

    Did it for the TFA panel at SWC Anaheim and it was INCREDIBLE. Was so fun I convinced myself to go to London for the Future Filmmakers panel last year which eeeeeehh, wasn't as great. Definitely had fun but can't compare to how amazing the TFA panel was, which is why I decided not to go this year. No point trying to recapture that excitement a third time. However, you're going to have a BLAST. Enjoy!

    Didn't notice it at first, but there is a slight difference.
    Rian Johnson confirmed it on Twitter.

    New design for boxes for items sold during the Force Friday has just been released and it features Rey in a new hairstyle, Finn in a new shirt (but still with the same jacket) and Poe in his pilot's costume.

    Nice find! It looks like Rey is keeping Anakin's lightsaber.

    I'll say it in this thread, too...looks like Rey has a cut above her left eye!

    Love the stormtroopers helmet tweaks, such a throwback to the OT, that feels like fan service in and of itself!

    Big fan of the packaging. It's nice to see it semi-confirmed that Rey will indeed be using the Skywalker legacy lightsaber, and that does indeed seem to be a scar over her eye (ironically almost literally mirroring where Anakin's was in ROTS/TCW, being on the opposite eyebrow in a similar position). Can't wait to see what figure specialists can do this time around, I'm a big fan of the costumes of Finn and Poe also!

    Finally, just to adjust m my prediction for the initial TLJ teaser trailer (which I said would come during the TLJ panel at Celebration, which judging from the past two years I mentioned could be the Thursday): Friday 14th April (that will be a really Good Friday, huh?) during the TLJ panel (not much of a difference from my original prediction, but just to clarify).

    Also, totally awesome that you get a press pass @Pomojema ! Totally agree with you too that the BTS steel will likely be during the opening ceremony on day 1 and that the teaser trailer will be on day 2 during the TLJ panel :)
