Another Celebration is in the books, and that means another attendance record. Celebration Orlando attendance was more than 70,000 people, StarWars.com says. That’s up from Anaheim’s 65K in 2015, and double our last Orlando outing in 2012. No wonder things got a bit… Messy. Attendees, look out for the surveys and be sure to fill them out.
We learned before the con that the next Celebration won’t be until 2019 – probably skipping the overseas outings that we had in 2014 and 2016. The leading speculation seems to be that we’ll be headed back to Anaheim, but since we didn’t get a location on Sunday we’ll be left hanging for a while longer. On the plus side, Pablo made a cannon canon.
In the meantime, here are a few other things we learned that I never got around to writing up, because cons are crazy.
It’s another super-sized Rebels Recon for ‘Zero Hour.’ Andi chats about the episode with Carrie Beck, Dave Filoni, Joel Aron, Kilian Plunkett, Keith Kellogg, Henry Gilroy and Pablo Hidalgo. (Pablo is also back to answer a ‘Twin Suns’ question.)
‘Twin Suns’ get a slightly longer Rebels Recon than usual, with Andi talking to Carrie Beck, Dave Filoni, Henry Gilroy, Pablo Hidalgo, Keith Kellogg, Kilian Plunkett, Stephen Stanton and Sam Witwer. Filoni also talked to io9 about the episode.
Mon Mothma resigns from the Senate and meets up with the Ghost crew on this week’s “Secret Cargo.” In Recon, Andi Gutierrez chats with Taylor Gray, Henry Gilroy, Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo about the episode, while Pablo answers a Thrawn question.
Rebels checks back in with Thrawn and Kallus in ‘Through Imperial Eyes.’ On Recon, Andi interviews Pablo Hidalgo, Henry Gilroy, Dave Filoni, Kilian Plunkett and Freddie Prinze Jr. Plus, Filoni and Chopper on the Rogue One set.
Sabine takes center stage in Rebels’‘Trials of the Darksaber,’ and in this week’s Recon Andi chats with Dave Filoni, Pablo Hidalgo, Henry Gilroy and Tiya Sircar. Plus, more Chopper and answers from Pablo.
Rebels will be back with more Mandos (sigh) on February 18.
