Star Wars Celebration Day Two

The fan convention continues to surprise.

Day Two of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim

Day Two of Star Wars Celebration at the Anaheim Convention Center started off with multiple festivities in and out of the Exhibit Hall. We were granted media access to give you a look at what guests took in on Day Two of the festivities. The first panel of the day was the “Light & Magic” panel which gave viewers a little look at the upcoming Disney+ series of the same name. The discussion was streamed live on two additional stages for overflow.

In the Exhibit Hall, things got a little scary with the Stormtrooper Zombie Walk. Portions of the red carpet and the exhibit pieces from “Obi-Wan Kenobi” were moved from the Celebration Stage entrance to the Exhibit Hall for all attendees to view—this included costumes worn by all main cast members of the show. The Running of Willrow Hood was seen around the convention center as the Georgia Alliance of Star Wars Collectors made their way up and down the escalators to their booth.

One of the most anticipated panels of the day took place in the afternoon with the “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones 20th Anniversary Celebration” that featured Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Temeura Morrison and more. One of the last panels of the day was hosted by D23 and celebrated 35 years of Star Tours in the Disney Parks. Viewers were treated to a look at the opening day of the ride in Disneyland in 1987 and a look at the original simulation to Endor.

One of the stand-out exhibits from Celebration is Rancho Obi-Wan. The non-profit museum based in Petaluma brought over a collection of items in The Saga Museum “Boba Fett to Bo-Katan: The Evolution of the Mandalorians.” Everything from helmets to memorabilia and even special edition household items are on display to celebrate the Mandalorians.
