Also, Saturday and Sunday schedule for Celebration is up. Saturday includes two panels that are a can’t miss for EU fans:
3:30 — 4:30 pm Continuity: Keeping a Universe in Order. It’s a big, big galaxy out there, and the keepers of Star Wars lore have a big job making sure nothing is in conflict. Find out how they do it, and more about what’s to come, with authors Troy Denning, Timothy Zahn, and Aaron Allston, Shelly Shapiro of Del Rey, and Sue Rostoni and Leland Chee of Lucasfilm. Pablo Hidalgo of starwars.com will moderate. Behind-the-Scenes Stage.
5:00 — 6:00 pm Title Reveal! The next arc in the best-selling Star Wars novel series is upon us, and the creators will reveal the title in this special panel at Celebration III. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions from the authors and publishers, and hear about the unique approach planned for this series. Arc authors Aaron Allston, Karen Traviss, and Troy Denning, plus Shelly Shapiro of Del Rey, and Sue Rostoni and Leland Chee of Lucasfilm. Behind-the-Scenes Stage (109).
And there’s also a Tim Zahn Outbound Flight event on Sunday.
Episode III tickets are going on sale all over the country this weekend, and for those of us way too lazy to research every theater in the immediate area, TFN has theater lists.
Our pals from Star Wars: Musical Edition have launched a site of their own. Love the illustrations!
You know a show is a hit when they start doing profiles on the dog.
Jude Watson fans, the official site has posted a first look at the second book of the The Last of the Jedi series, Dark Warning.
The novelization Revenge of the Sith made it to number 2 on the Publisher’s Weekly bestseller list for hardcover fiction last week. It was beaten, naturally, by The Da Vinci Code.
And the PG-13 rating is finally official, for “sci-fi violence and some intense images.” Click over to filmratings.com to see for yourself.
Hayden will be at Celebration… Sort of. He’ll be beaming in (heh) via satellite from Rome, where he’s filming The Decameron. It’s set for 10:30 a.m. on Friday – Hayden fangirls best keep Thursday partying to a minimum.
As for the other major (most major) guest, starwars.com has posted the scheduled times for George Lucas’ appearances. There are three short sessions early on Saturday – the first one starts at the ungodly hour of 8:45 a.m. (Seating starts at 8:00!) Looks like no one is going to do any late partying this time. But hopefully, with 3,300 seats for each session, most people will get in.
