While Star Wars Celebration has been announcing guests on Wednesday, they threw us a curve ball when they announced Freddie Prinze Jr and Sara Michelle Gellar yesterday! This was truly a left field announcement since neither normally do conventions.
JediNews is reporting that Celebration has announced the podcasts that will be recording in front of a live audience at Celebration. We applied knowing that our podcast is still too new to really make a strong enough impression to compete with the big name Star Wars podcasts. The competition is fierce because there are legions of amazing podcasts dedicated to Star Wars. While I don’t have time, unfortunately, to listen to all, the ones that I have listened to two are top notch. I plan on attending a few because these people love Star Wars, they make me think more in depth about the saga, and to learn about podcasting. Most of these have done so long they are of professional quality.
I’ll be a guest at @SW_Celebration next month, too… so get those Vader questions ready (and Poe!) (And anything else!)

Charles Soule tweeted this directly after announcing he was writing Darth Vader: Year One. This is news I really have been waiting for because comics are my preferred reading and Mr. Soule is one of the best. Not only has he done the fantastic Lando and Poe Dameron, but he is also the writer for Daredevil. Jordan D. White, the editor in charge of Marvel’s Star Wars comics since 2015, will also be at Celebration according to his twitter account. He has also confirmed that there will be a Star Wars Marvel panel. This gives me hope that there will be more representation for the comics, especially since they are canon. We should know more the more Celebration takes shape.
Until next time, may the force be with you!
