First look at Lucasfilm’s SDCC pavilion

sdcc-rebel-ladies

On StarWars.com this morning, Mary Franklin shares some pictures from the Lucasfilm Pavilion at San Diego Comic-Con. (Though not the one above – that’s from her Twitter.) The con officially begins tonight, with the Rebels panel on Thursday and three book panels on Friday.

Episode VII news is not expected, unless it comes via the grapevine (or Mary’s video wall, but that’s a long shot.) And while the rumor mill is saying we might get an announcement of a Princess Leia comic from Marvel, I’m not sure where that would happen: At the A New Dawn panel, which seems focused on Del Rey? None of Marvel’s own panels seem to fit the bill.

In any case, don’t forget about the Rebels screening and HitFix party!

SDCC: Peek at Her Universe’s new booth, Lucasfilm’s Pavilion

Her Universe's new MEGA BOOTH

With preview night at San Diego Comic-Con nigh, Her Universe posted a photo of their new mega-booth. And over at the StarWars.com blog, Mary Franklin shares a look at the Lucasfilm Pavilion. Galactic Hunter has pics from tonight as well.

And here are the Mara and Jaina shirts! For real!

May the 4th: Mary Franklin is Her Universe’s Fangirl of the Day!

Mary and some admirersWho’s an appropriate choice to be Her Universe’s Fangirl of the Day on May 4th? Lucasfilm’s Mary Franklin is not only Club Jade’s favorite bartending visionary, but she’s been responsible for almost every single Celebration and the Bantha Tracks newsletter. (Which, granted, may be the more impressive feat overall, but hey: We love our bar.)

You’ll want to check out Mary’s blog entries on the StarWars.com blog, particularly her series going behind the scenes at Celebration, which even features a few other Jaders here and there.

And of course you’ve been keeping up with the Fangirls of the Day, right?

Celebration VI schedule to be revealed in app first

Actual news in an email update? Refreshing! According to an email sent to CVI attendees about an hour ago, the program schedule will be coming to the Celebration mobile app first. No word on when the reveal will happen – early next week, perhaps? – but consider yourselves warned.

One thing we do know about the schedule: It’s 9 feet long. And it looks like this.

Extra credit if you can figure out what this means:
