This week, Star Wars Celebration. Originating on April 30 1999 in Denver, Colorado with the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum, Celebration was started as a way to celebrate the Star Wars franchise and the upcoming release of Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace.

Expanding around the globe to places like London, Japan, Germany, Orlando, and this year in Chicago, Celebration brings fans together to show their love of Star Wars with many other fans, even cast-playing as their favorite characters. Fan organizations like the 501st Legion, Rebel Legion, Droid Builders, Saber Guild, and the Manda Mercs also joined in on the fun, making this event the place to be for Star Wars fans. Because of Celebration, fans are able to get the latest and greatest in Star Wars news direct from the creators themselves, meet their favorite celebrities, and hang out with other Star Wars fans from around the world. And without Star Wars Celebration, The Star Wars Show wouldn’t be able to capture some of the fun for viewers at home with memorable moments like John Boyega crashing a trailer breakdown, Hayden Christiensen sharing his thoughts about sand, it’s not very smooth, amazing sets built by the Belgian Props Crew, a couple getting married, and the world being introduced to Oki, the Star Wars vegetable-carving master.

Thanks, Star Wars Celebration. – We’re under attack. – I’ll take the guns. – Master Dooku. – Are you ready? – This audio original is the back story of Count Dooku. How he joined the Jedi Order, and then ultimately how he leaves the Jedi Order. – That’s insane. – Yes. – This is really different because it’s a massive cast of actors and different voices. – I thought you said we could eject here. – You’re imagining things. – Speak only when they have something useful to say. – We’ve had to create several new characters for this book. – Here we are doing this amazing sci-fi world being those characters together.

– Have you done this before? – No. – Audio books are so popular. We wanted to tell a narrative fiction story with light sabers, and music, and sound effects that you’re going to be listening to on your Star Wars adventure. – It’s very, very cool. – You’re watching SWC. Buy something, won’t ya? – Hello and welcome to SWC, the only Star Wars Celebration shopping channel on the internet. – Where we don’t make it unless you’ll buy it. And my stars, do we have a collection for you today.

– That’s right, Anthony. Did you know that there is a Star Wars show? – Ah, yes, The Mandalorian. – No, the other Star Wars show. The one that was nominated for multiple Emmys. – Ah, of course you’re talking about the Clone Wars. Very excited to catch up with Anakin and Snips again. – No, I wish. This Star Wars show is on the internet. – Wait, they give out Emmys for internet shows now? What’s next, People’s Choice Awards? – No, I’m talking about The Star Wars Show from the internet. – Yeah, I have never heard of it. – And this year at Star Wars Celebration they have their own merchandise. – Well you know how much I love merchandise with logos on it. – Would you like to see what they’re offering this year at the Star Wars Celebration store? – Would I? – Yeah, would you? – Yes.

– First, we have Kevin the Ewok showing off this stylish snapback hat featuring the mousetroid CH-33Z. And hats are perfect for those rainy days, or days you just want to hide a bald spot. – Oh, and look who just showed-up. It’s Gonk wearing a stylish long sleeve shirt in a throwback pattern that reminds me of Miami Beach in 1987. Oh look, it’s the star of Rogue One A Star Wars Story and Star Wars Rebels chopper, and it looks like he’s wearing a shirt for his side business he’s running now.

– I guess someone spent all their TV and movie money too fast and had to get a real job. – And now he’s being joined by partner CH-33Z who also has a short sleeve show logo shirt taped to his side. – And the shirt is the color black like the vastness of space where the hit film series Star Wars takes place. – It looks like Kevin the Ewok has returned and he’s holding up a shirt instead of wearing it.
