Celebration V: The holy schedule, blessed be its name

Reed warns us that the schedule isn’t totally complete just yet, but the bulk of the panels are there. A few highlights:

  • Pablo’s Behind-The-Scenes Stage will host panels on Fate of the Jedi, Knight Errant (with exclusive,) ’30 Years of Lucasfilm Licensing with Howard Roffman’ and Gary Kurtz, all on Saturday.
  • Author panels on writing in the Project Room & Lecture Hall from Troy Denning (Friday at 5:30), Christie Golden (Saturday at 3:30) and Aaron Allston (Saturday at 5:00)
  • Get started early on the EU when ‘Star Wars Galaxy with the Essential Guides’ will take over the Behind-The-Scenes Stage on Thursday at 1:30. CJ’s own Helen Keier will be making her first Celebration apperance along with fellow writers Jason Fry, Pablo Hidalgo, Dan Wallace, and Ryder Windham, plus artists Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas and Del Rey editor Erich Schoeneweiss. Could we get an announcement or two?
  • EU Cantina is hosting a Friday panel on The Essential Atlas.
  • Bryan Young (The Star Wars Examiner, Big Shiny Robot) is moderating “Why We Love the Prequels,” also on Friday.
  • And last but by no means least, ‘Fandom in 140 Words or Less: Social Media and Star Wars Fandom,’ hosted by TFN’s Mandy and Eric Sunday at 2:30 in the Project Room & Lecture Hall. Your humble panelists include Bonnie Burton, Meagan Finnerty, Kyle Newman, James Arnold Taylor and…. Moi. WHOO-HOO!

But wait! That’s not all!

  • Celebration V apps are now available in the Apple Store and Android Market. I downloaded it on my iPhone and found it rather underwhelming: Hopefully a schedule and map is in the cards.
  • The merchandise catalog has also surfaced, so make your game plan.
  • Meet the tattoo artists and make appointments…

  • More artists! Sign up for speed dating… If you dare!

And I still probably forgot something. You know what to do.

  1. Funny, I checked iTunes for an app last night and thought, stang, it would have been nice if they had thought of that. Thanks for the head’s up.

  2. Um. No PDF links for the merchandise catalog.

    I guess I can wait to get there before I start crying about how I can’t afford to get everything I want. :)

  3. I think my favorite parts of the merchandise catalog are the “O Lando” poster and magnet. :) Cracks me up every time!

  4. Live tattooing? That’s kind of scary. A tattoo is not something to be done without forethought. How many people will get one at CV and regret it later? But if Rusty wants one, he can have it, I suppose. He’s been talking about one for a while.

  5. I kind of want one of those Lando Disguise Kits, which is pathetic since I already have a mustache.
