Celebration V details from Steve Sansweet

Steve Sansweet at Celebration IV with Mayor Villaraigosa / Photo by Kristen DelValle /  starwarsblog @ FlickrOur pal Steve Sansweet was hanging out on the Forcecast tonight, and he gave us some tidbits:

  • Jon Stewart’s “Main Event” with George Lucas will be a one-time only thing, but there will be an overflow room.
  • All six Star Wars films will be screened digitally, two a night.
  • The U.S. Postal Service will be on hand the first day with a special mailing station and themed cancellation stamp.
  • Randy Martinez is doing the program art.
  • There will be some form of opening ceremony – because Steve needs to wear a silly costume (See right.)
  • And weirdest of all… There will be speed dating. No, really. Speed dating.

The podcast is aired live tonight, but will be up later this week.

UPDATE: Listen to Steve on the ForceCast!

  1. I’m pleased to say the speed dating idea from the Dragon*Con track. Brandy Roatsey put together Lightspeed Dating. They ended up with two couples.

    And I can’t wait to see what the costume is this time.

  2. If I were going, I would totally find the time to do the speed dating. It sounds like more fun when you face the possibility of ending up sitting across from someone in a Wookiee outfit.
