The biggest thing to come out of this Celebration was, of course, the much-anticipated and yet totally unexpected (well, unannounced) Clone Wars footage. As disappointed as I was to first hear that the animated series would be yet another dose of the Clone Wars, I must admit it looks pretty cool. There’s a report from the C4 panel at the StarWars.com Celebration blog. Alas, due to my schedule I never made the actual panels, although I did manage to catch the footage itself on screen, and it’s fantastic in high-def. I hope everyone who could caught it that way.
The fan-produced “3-D animated stills” mentioned is probably the ‘Tales from the New Republic’ project. While impressive for a fan production (and more in line with what I hoped for the animated series, sigh) the image quality suffers in comparison to the CW footage. Still, it’s a great idea and a lot of work, and I hope they can pull it off!
Even if… umm… no comment.

Neil Baker, aka the StarWars.com blogger nob01, is putting together a fan documentary called A Place in the Galaxy on the Star Wars blogging community. He’s recently launched a site for the project, and will be at CIV with camera in hand. In his own words:
The theme for the film is how communities grow and nurture their family members.
A Place in the Galaxy is a documentary examining the phenomenon of Star Wars and the nature of the fan community that has built up around it. The film will partly focus on the blogging and fan site community, and will investigate the relationships between fans, their common dreams, their personal stories and how the Star Wars saga has impacted their lives.

Yes, fan fiction. The fan film awards also get a name change – it’s now the Fan Movie Challenge Awards, and Spike TV is on board to give the results a wider audience. As in previous years, it all comes to a head at Celebration.
