Star Wars-ing: Star Wars Panels at Wizard World New Orleans

For the next two weeks, most of our blogs will be about Wizard World New Orleans. The Convention is held at the Morial Convention Center on January 6,7, and 8th.  This week we will be previewing the event, and next week reviewing the event. 

We enjoy everything Star Wars at Nola Nerd Couple, which is why it has it’s own category.  We love to discuss the movies, the tv shows, the comics, and the books.  Looking at the programming for Wizard World New Orleans, it looks like we are not the only ones.
