    San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) starts this Thursday! We will be in attendance and reporting on Star Wars related news and content happening over the course of the weekend! Here is a preview of the Star Wars panels and events we'll be attending and reporting on, plus an exclusive SDCC Star Wars item giveaway just for our readers.





    In addition to updating you with our reports here on the site, we'll also be live-tweeting events. So if you haven't yet, make sure you follow us @StarWarsNewsNet on Twitter! Representing us this year will be Lacey Gilleran!

    Here is the list of Star Wars related panels we'll be attending and covering LIVE at SDCC this year!

    We were honored to be invited to attend Hasbro’s annual Entertainment Brand Preview Breakfast! The event features a first look at the latest toys and SDCC exclusives from favorite Hasbro brands such as Transformers, My Little Pony,Power Rangers, DropMix, Magic: The Gathering, Marvel, but most importantly..STAR WARS! We will have the opportunity to speak with Hasbro brand representatives before the convention floor opens and we'll get you as much info as possible!




    • Star Wars: The Clone Wars panel (11:45 PT)
    We will be attending this anniversary panel, live tweeting as executive producer Dave Filoni and panelists look back on 10 years of the Emmy Award-winning series that expanded the Star Wars universe and introduced countless fan-favorite characters to a galaxy far, far away. Filoni will be joined by producer Athena Portillo, composer Kevin Kiner, the voice of Ahsoka Tano herself, Ashley Eckstein, and the voice of Anakin Skywalker, Matt Lanter. Many rumors have been swirling about whether a big announcement will come out of this panel, so we'll keep you updated on this live!







    FRIDAY


    • Hasbro: Star Wars (1:00pm - 2:00pm PT)
    Members of the Hasbro and Lucasfilm teams will discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line. Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro's latest action figure offerings. Word on the Holonet is there may also be a few surprises.

    <div>

    • The Women of Star Wars (5:00pm - 6:00pm PT) 
    For the past 40 years, the Star Wars galaxy has expanded at a remarkable rate. Behind the scenes, creators have worked to round that galaxy out and to maintain cultural relevancy by appealing to new fans from different walks of life. Authors E. K. Johnston (Star Wars: Ahsoka) and Zoraida Córdova (From a Certain Point of View) join writer Nicole Dubuc (Forces of Destiny) to discuss the impact of a more inclusive Star Wars, from the writers to the actors to, of course, the characters you know and love.







    SDCC EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY CONTESTS!



    Speaking of women in Star Wars, that brings us to our giveaway! Thanks to our friends at Hasbro, we are giving away a SDCC exclusive figure set, the Doctor Aphra Comic Set!

    J.J. should have it satisfying, but open to new stories.

    Doctor Aphra action figure is neat.

    Looking forward to any news this weekend, hopefully some new comic announcements, looks like some series ending soon. And also looking forward to any info on the Resistance show.

    I think that JJ Abrams Will Close His Main Story That He Began In “The Force Awakens”! Some Subplots Or Side Stories May Be Open For Possible Content Outside Of The Films But Wraping The Rey And Skywalker Storyline Would Be Playing It Sade Without Having To Cram Too Much Into One Film!

    I think he should play it safer then Rian Johnson did but a little less safe then TFA. I think an ending to the storyline is good with possibilities open for future films.

    EPIX should have a definite finish to Luke's, Han's and Leia's story. You should let open the future of the new characters, but not with a cliffhangar.

    I think it will be a mixture of playing it safe and making bold moves.

    " Do you think J. J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode IX should have a definitive finish or end open ended, perhaps even with a cliffhanger? "

    I'm not much of one to say just how a Story should be told me. Not never for the whole Forty Years of Stories.
    All things have an End., so I'll go with that.
    Ya said it's about what I feel, right ?

    " Also do you think J.J. Abrams will play it safe in this final installment of the trilogy? "

    Honestly, to me, I don't know what 'safe' Star Wars is.
