    This is crazy: I think me and @FN-3263827 were sitting in the same section for the Galaxy’s Edge panel! I should’ve taken more pictures than I did, but I’ll try to upload some later! Long story short, I had a great day at Star Wars Celebration!

    I’ve gotta admit that I’ve felt pretty nostalgic for Star Wars Celebration pretty much since it ended. This was my first Celebration and while I won’t be going to Anaheim next year, I hope to go to more Star Wars Celebrations in the future. Definitely gonna start cosplaying at the next one!

    My biggest regret is that I only went one day and that I didn’t really interact with too many people while I was there. Looking back through this thread, I see that there was a bunch of things I didn’t even know about on the Show Floor after spending several hours there! Had I gone more than one day, I would’ve done a lot more!

    While this may be six months late, I realized that I never shared any pictures on here, so here’s a couple!! (@FN-3263827 did a lot better job taking pictures than me btw)

    Here’s a shot of a TIE Fighter bike outside the convention center!

    0EF4D163-CAF0-40B8-BC18-13ABF1FF857E.jpeg

    Don’t know why the lighting is so bad in this picture, but here’s the banner they had inside!

    D6E56AE1-EA38-4FBB-BFD8-7DDF9C66BA30.jpeg

    I remember being so ecstatic that I won the raffle to get into the big panel on Saturday, as that was the only day I went to the convention. It was also incredibly cool seeing Warwick Davis in person before the panel started! He did some trivia games and stuff like that and he did an excellent job hosting.

    5B2F5E3D-6F47-463D-A765-77D9A1FD2C50.jpeg

    0D265D7B-CC35-448C-97E8-E545FEA131B7.png

    The panel itself was a bit disappointing to be honest, as they didn’t really announce anything new besides this hilarious Coke promotion:

    4D710984-96FC-4DA0-A196-84FFEBE78D1A.png

    Not to say that I didn’t have a great time! (Ironically, I spilt Coke all over myself before the panel started. :p) Josh Gad also did a good job hosting and the panel did get me even more pumped to go to Galaxy’s Edge than I already was, so I’d say it was a success.

    894FCEA6-CD19-4FF6-B6CC-6C83B770C33F.jpeg

    After the Galaxy’s Edge panel ended, I stayed for the Jedi: Fallen Order panel. In between the two panels, they did some funny games and whatnot.

    C7CDC56C-6CCA-4602-ADF7-1DAFA8B07387.jpeg

    I probably enjoyed the Jedi: Fallen Order panel more, though I have to say that I had a harder time hearing what they were saying on the stage than the previous panel. Whether it was where my seats were or the mics were just not working properly, I’m not sure.

    E77F7ABB-AB45-45CA-8772-C5EB3C68A94B.jpeg

    After showing the trailer at the start of the panel (which surprised me and was probably a better move than playing it at the end tbh), the crowd went nuts and were activating their lightsabers. I remember feeling like I was in the Geonosis arena with the sea of lightsabers before me. ;)

    It was also a cool surprise seeing Cameron Monaghan on the stage, since that was when they first announced who was playing the main character. I had already known this because of leaks a few days prior, but it was cool being in the same room as Cal Cestis (who we’ll be learning a lot more about in two weeks when the game actually comes out!)

    C307F44A-5964-4BDE-B9B8-DD9BE04436C8.jpeg

    This was the reveal of the Second Sister and her Purge Troopers. Funnily enough, they ended up using the image on the screen as a T-Shirt design that I picked up on Triple Force Friday! I ended up leaving the panel like ten minutes early to go shopping.

    Here’s a random collection of pics from the Show Floor:

    27A1B23A-CFE5-420F-B299-B874089F271F.jpeg CAE9B5DA-D917-4BC7-89B8-9BD286F7C07E.jpeg F4E54BC4-24F2-476F-BA43-7C1BF71982DD.jpeg 99ABEDE8-EDAA-4403-9ACA-E04EB473FE8D.jpeg 10A1F8F6-2F13-44FE-96B0-71CBFAC671E7.jpeg A80055C1-51AF-47D2-A313-9C8A4090DB93.jpeg E0439EC3-B158-4525-85E8-E7C9F602EFD2.jpeg

    They had a replica of the First Order Treadspeeder prop from The Rise of Skywalker on display, but for whatever reason, I only got a picture of the sign in front of it.

    42BFCA45-9DB5-47A1-8EF7-27A31DC9DCB3.jpeg

    That’s another regret I have: not taking more pictures. I filmed clips for a vlog that I never ended up making, but I didn’t take as many pictures as I would’ve liked. Guess I was too busy looking at everything to remember to take pictures!

    I did take some pictures of Chicago itself (which turned out better than a lot of the pictures I took inside the convention center for some reason) though I didn’t explore the city too much. It was freezing and I’ve been to Chicago before anyway. Still, it was a beautiful evening!

    92F386AE-4304-4F35-8610-C50B94AB2BE9.jpeg 22AA19A2-EB1E-4C67-A4C4-5ACEA652E871.jpeg

    It even started snowing the next morning!

    1BDAEBFB-1821-4D93-AAAC-443FB41EA1CE.jpeg

    Last but not least, here was my Star Was Celebration haul:

    BE8A00DE-D022-4594-9953-EFBC02E60DE8.jpeg

    A lot of this stuff was free, so I really only bought some cool shirts.

    Still haven’t worn the Clone Wars shirt as it’s a little too big for me, but I love the other shirts I got! I also bought a lanyard, as well as a magnet and a poster, both of which sport the Celebration 2019 poster. Plus I got a BB-8 pin with my purchase!

    I got the ginormous Coca-Cola Aurebesh shirt from the Galaxy’s Edge panel. It’s an awesome shirt which I hope to wear to Galaxy’s Edge next year! I got a bunch of stuff from the Jedi: Fallen Order panel: poster, BD-1 pin, and one month XBOX Live Membership (which I never used since I play on PS4).



    While I do have some regrets from my time at Star Wars Celebration earlier this year, it was still an incredible experience. The general excitement was so infectious and there was so much cool stuff to see there. I can’t wait until Celebration next year (which I’ll be enjoying from my couch!) :p

    i've been reliving this too lately, @The Hero With No Fear!
    doubtful i will do another one, but i have zero regrets for the time and money i spent on this one.
    seriously the most fun i've had with the fandom since rejoining in 2015.

    you and i were so close on Saturday! i was sitting in that section where the guy's head is blocking your shot (4th or 5th row).
    of the three stadium panels i got into, this was the one i had the best seats for.
    i remember both the guy in the brown robe/cowl, and the guy with the fedora (both were behind me). XD

    also, i was seeing things on the last day that i hadn't seen even after being there four days, so yeah, there was a lot going on.

    thank you for goosing my happy memories! : D

    Unfortunately no. Chicago was relatively close to me, but Anaheim is on the opposite side of the country from me.

    Depending on where it’s held in 2021 (or whenever the next Celebration after Anaheim will be taking place), I’d love to go again and hopefully interact with more people too!
