Hi Everyone! Can you believe that Celebration V has now come and gone? I feel like we talked about it forever and just like my wedding, it came and went like a blink of an eye! There were soooo many cool things that happened and I don’t even know where to start, so I’ll just start listing…
1. GEORGE LUCAS and The Main Event!!!!!!!!!!
I have only met George Lucas twice. So to see him in person again was pretty cool. It was also cool to see Jon Stewart. He was very funny and he did an excellent job hosting the event. George Lucas was very inspiring. He talked about the odds that he had to overcome to make Star Wars and how despite everything against him, he never gave up. He talked about believing in yourself, doing things yourself and being persistent. When I walked out of the theatre, I was so in awe and inspired, I felt like I could achieve anything. Check out this video when George Lucas walked onstage, the crowd was electric!
2. The Clone Wars
We did a ton of press for season 3 of The Clone Wars and it was sooo exciting to finally start talking about it!!! We have been working on season 3 for a long time now and I cannot wait until Sept. 17th for the season to premiere on Cartoon Network. Ahsoka has a lot of great episodes in Season 3. She grows up and matures a great deal throughout the season and definitely look for some connections to the old saga in this new season. While we were at Celebration the Clone Wars CG Supervisor, Joel Aron (who is also an AMAZING photographer) was so kind to do a cast photo shoot with us. He took some amazing photos and here is a sample of his work! I can’t wait to show you more…
3. Her Universe
To all of the fans, male and female, who came out and supported Her Universe I want to give you a big hug and say THANK YOU!!!!! It was a great weekend for Her Universe and we made another HUGE leap in the right direction by proving that women will buy/wear Star Wars merchandise. I am so inspired by all of the amazing fans that I met and I cannot wait to start designing more stuff for you! I took down several notes and we will be going into more design meetings soon. This is just the beginning! It was also soooo cool to host the first ever Star Wars fashion show and to see some of my designs up on the same stage as Adidas, Mad Engine and Junk Food! It was truly and honor. Thank you to everyone who came out to watch the fashion show!
4. The Fans
You made the entire Celebration experience worth it! Thank you for coming out and supporting us! Thank you for waiting in the long autograph lines (I know I talk too much and that made my line longer, but I really enjoy meeting everyone!) Thank you for all your kind words about the show, Ahsoka, and Her Universe. We would not be here if it weren’t for you. You make this all possible. You have been so accepting of The Clone Wars and you have truly made us feel like part of the Star Wars family.
