Happy Star Wars Day!
Since it’s Star Wars Day it’s the perfect day to share all that I can about the recent Star Wars Celebration that was held in Anaheim, California. The Star Wars Celebration is just what it sounds like, a celebration of all things Star Wars. There was costume characters, replica sets, droids, fans, fun and much more. It was truly an amazing experience and I hope that I will be able to attend another Celebration.
Even before you head into the Convention Center you are greeted by fans of all ages and in all types of costumes and fan gear. That’s the great thing about Star Wars it’s for everyone!
There was so much to see and do once inside the convention center it’s almost a bit overwhelming at first. For me it was nice to get a few photo ops done and just walk around to see where everything is. The main floor featured vendor booths, replica sets, exhibits of fan art, collectibles, costumes and more. The Celebration is the perfect place to fill all your Star Wars shopping needs. Many companies attend such as; Hasbro, Lego, Toys”R”Us, Build-A-Bear, Jakks Pacific, Hallmark, DK Publishing, Her Universe, and of course there is the Celebration shop with Celebration exclusive merchandise. Almost all the vendors had exclusive items just for the Celebration and some had a different exclusive item each day. Many also had sneak peeks of upcoming products.
All the set replicas were amazing! They truly made you feel like you stepped into a Star Wars film. Some were just set up as a part of a vendors booth while most were for awesome photo opportunities.
This is only a glimpse of what Star Wars Celebration is. I would love to share every detail but for now I am signing off. Keep an eye out for continuing Celebration posts, the next ones will feature an inside look at the Episode VII special exhibit and the panel of the next season of Disney’s Star Wars Rebels.
And as always May the Force be with you!
