…it’s a big Welcome to Star Wars Celebration V, suspended in the main entrance of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Being a first-generation Star Wars fan, I’m clearly excited about the next four days, and as a GeekDad, I’m equally psyched about this being my daughter’s first time attending one of these celebrations of the George Lucas space saga.
And though my favorite aspect of these things is always just meeting and talking with fellow enthusiasts, I’m really looking forward to the interviews I’ve got planned for GeekDad, and I’ve already red-penned several of the panels and presentations and made notes of some of the must-see exhibits.
Four days of Star Wars, both old-school and shiny new? Count me in. All the special focus on the thirtieth anniversary of the Best Movie in the Saga? That’s just Hoth icing on a delicious AT-AT cake.
