Celebration VI Updates: New Guests

Just in from starwars.com, a few more very famous celebrity guests will be coming to Celebration VI this August.

Carrie Fisher: The actress behind the tough, witty Princess Leia in the Original Trilogy will for sure be at the Celebration. She will greet fans, sign autographs in the Autograph Hall, and even have a question-and-answer session onstage with host James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Clone Wars).

Joel Aron: You may not recognize the name, but this guy is the CG Supervisor for The Clone Wars TV show and has worked in Industrial Light & Magic (arguably the best visual effects company in the world) on films such as Jurassic Park, Men In Black, and Pearl Harbor. At the Celebration he will be on the Clone Wars panels "sharing both behind-the-scenes knowledge and spectacular new sneak peeks into Season Five" (starwars.com). He also will be teaching sessions in the Star Wars University lecture hall.

Lots and Lots of Boba Fetts: Every actor who has played the most famous bounty hunter in the galaxy will be at Celebration VI. While there, they will be onstage, will sign autographs, and meet fans. Jeremy Bulloch (Fett from the Original Trilogy) will be there, as well as Daniel Logan (teenage Fett in Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars), Dickey Beer (Bulloch's stunt double during the infamous Sail Barge scene), and John Morton. Adding more to the Fett hoopla will be The Dented Helmet and the 501st Legion who "are hosting an art helmet charity project. Artists are creating one-of-a-kind masterpeices to benefit the Make-A-Wish charity, with roughly hald the exhibit and art dedicated to clone trooper helmets, and half to Boba Fett helmets" (starwars.com). These helmets will be on display and auctioned off at Celebration VI.

More guests and hosts may be announced closer to the Celebration, but, for now, you can add all of those guys to the ever-expanding list of Star Wars celebrities that will be attending.

And, of course, the year that all of the Fett actors are at the party is the very year that I can't go. :(

Ah, well. Maybe I'll get Mr. Bulloch's and Mr. Logan's autographs some other time. :D
