Since we last checked in with Celebration Chicago, they’ve added even more guests, including OG Chewbacca Peter Mayhew, The Clone Wars/Rebels and Her Universe head Ashley Eckstein, and lots and lots of others.

Animation guests Donald Faison, Jason Isaacs, Vanessa Marshall, Myrna Velasco, Tom Kane, Catherine Taber and Dee Bradley Baker.
→ We’ve also got the full list for the Podcast Stage, which seems longer this year. Did any of your faves make it?
→ Some tips from Jennifer Landa on perfecting your costume for the con.
→ And on that note, tickets for the big fan club party (The 501st, Rebel Legion, Mandalorian Mercs, the Dark Empire, Droid Builders, Saber Guild and Galactic Academy are all involved) are now on sale to the public at SWBash.com.
Rebels. Lucasfilm’s Tracy Cannobbio tells Lightsaber Rattling that John Williams is “not composing music for Star Wars Rebels.” So keep on speculating, I guess.
Video. There’s another Jett Lucas interview; Harrison Ford continues to not say much about Episode VII.
Nonfiction. Star Wars Books has posted some screencaps from the enhanced Making of eBooks, which will be out next week.
Flicks and the City got to sit down with Jett Lucas, and he has plenty to say – if not reveal – about Episode VII. Namely, Abrams and George Lucas are “constantly talking” now, he doesn’t think we’ll see Star Trek actors make the jump and the timeline of George starting on the sequel and the Disney sale. Jett is currently working on the TV show Chicago Fire. (via)
