    hi,

    when can i come to the la convention center and buy badges for me and my family? we want badges for either saturday or sunday? is it possible to come to the convention center and buy them in advance of saturday or sunday?

    if not, will there be a problem getting badges? we are 100 miles north of la, so i hate to drive down and find out we cannot get in.

    thanks,

    glen

    Okay, I am having a little trouble navigating here – can someone help me? I live in LA and I didn’t buy badges. Where is the six-movie marathon playing – just in the convention center? I have a son who lives and breathes star wars. I guess we should just buy passes but I thought he would be so overwhelmed he might explode. Any guidance would be so appreciated!! Please feel free to email me directly as i may never find my way back here – kristenmoyer@hotmail.com.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    Boy, I wish we were going! We live in Visalia Ca and it’s a bit far…
    but we did go to the California Science Center to see the star wars exhibit there. It was so wonderful to see the look on my son’s face when he saw Darth Vader’s costume. There was a lot to take in at that event I’m not sure how he would handle the C IV ..might just faint!!
    What’s amazing to me is that Star Wars has something for everyone. I’m a weaver/textile enthusiast and I think the costumes are beyond fantastic just amazing.

    I’ll be checking this page daily to see all that’s going on…have a wonderful event.

    Hello,

    All questions about getting badges can be found on the Celebration IV site: http://www.gencon.com/2007/swciv/info/FAQ.aspx#registration

  8. Gabe says:

    All I have to say is that Bonnie Burton and the rest of the team who’s bringing this to us all, totally ROCK! I’m loving the new stuff here!

  9. Adam says:

    It is Tuesday May 29th, & I’m looking for a final update on the weekend.
    I am Wondering what the “huge” Announcemet was?
    Was it the trailer for Clone Wars? The video game release?
    Wish I could have been there.

  10. Dany says:

    C4 was an amazing experience, really
    It was really sad when on monday evertone had to say bye๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    but I hope, Iยดll see many people at C5 just wait๐Ÿ™‚
    C4 was extraordinary๐Ÿ˜€

  11. alicia says:

    c4 was great. It was cool to see so many in costumes. I even saw a abay wookie!

  12. Michelle says:

    I went to the convention and had an awesome time! I do have one complaint though. On Monday the last day we were told that the people that had Monday only badges were getting the C3PO, R2D2 figrues for free. How fair was that. I bought a 4 day badge, spent a lot of money at the convention but didn’t get anything free, especially a one of a kind figrue. Why was people that spent a fraction of the money that us 4 day badge people spent getting the free figrue??I just don’t think that was very fair.

  13. Sam says:

    CIV was awesome. The atmosphere was great for a Star Wars event. Can’t wait for Celebration V!!!!!!

  14. Sue says:

    Where are the pictures of fans, especially the children?

    Star Wars is about being a kid again and enjoying the universe it created. But NO pictures of the kids? No pictures from the Jedi Training Event?

    C’mon people. If I wanted to read text I would buy a newspaper. Star Wars is VISUAL. Where are the picutres?????

  15. Sue–

    See the thumbnails along the right side of the page? There are actually 832 photos posted on Flickr from the blog folks alone (9,301 results for Celebration IV across all of Flickr), including this album of kids at CIV: http://www.flickr.com/photos/starwarsblog/sets/72157600273095431/

    Hi.

    Nice site! And some really helpful information there. Iโ€™m sorry for beeing a little off-topic, but I want to ask you about the design of this site. Did you make this template yourself or got from any templates website? I am using joomla myself, but want something better..

  17. Peter–

    Judging by the footer, I’d say they got the template from Vault9.๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Adela says:

    I attended the entire CIV, and this was a far better experience then the last two. For one thing a more spacious convention center. We were not stepping over each other trying to get to panels. Also the store layout this time, vast, vast, improvement over the last two.

    I am with Michelle on the Monday thing. I also bought a four day badge, then was told on monday that if I bought a monday one, I could get “as many figures” as I wanted for free. We spent far more on our badge, this was just a very bad decision to make. Being full attendees if anyone was to get anything free, we should have gotten it.

    No wonder, a big star wars fan as I am, as much as I love WordPress which is the ultimate blogging platform.

    Keep up the great job, folks.

  38. Gozzie says:

    In the meantime, please consider adding a Games section to this blog.

    I am also surprised to see this blog outside of StarWars.com. It makes me wonder what else we have to look forward to.

  40. bonniegrrl says:

    To Z-score: Even though the starwars.com blog is only outside of starwars.com for the time being, I assure you it is official.

  41. jediprincess says:

  45. RTD says:

    was reading Star Wars Books and they keep saying Luke turned to the dark side and served the resurrected Emperor. Where can I find that book? I think I was reading the Heir to the Empire series. I’m sure it’s a simple answer that I’m overlooking. Please help

I have just bought from a car boot sale the star wars chess set saga edition, (the lady promised me it was all there) when i got home and set it up I found some of the pieces missing. So does anyone out there know where i could get the extra pieces i need to make my chess set complete.

    Thank you cant wait to hear from someone.

  47. captmidnight says:

    What is up with parts 7,8 and 9 of the Star Wars films. I know what most people are thinking. There only 6 films in the saga. Well not according to the Star Wars magazine I bought in 1978-79. In it , it gave an overview of all films to be made. Thirty years ago I knew Vader would fall into a volcano. The last 3 movies were to be about Luke as an adult and what happened after the empire fell apart.

  48. Gary Duff says:

    I did’nt know about this starwars blog i’m very glad to write to you all but i am interested in the comentary of captmidnight that was taking about a magazine
    i want to know it because i have the starwars Book (original) and
    I was asking me if you were so kind that you can talk to me at cybergary_2007@hotmail.com

  49. Gary Duff says:

    are you all starwars jedi council menbers?

  50. Darth Matt says:

    Great coverage of C4

  51. Darth Matt says:

    I live in England so I could not go to C4 but I wish Star Wars a very happy 30th!
    I am a huge fan and a collector and I love the classic trilogy the best but I was blown away after seeing Episode 3.

  52. Mark Newbold says:

    Hmm, just noticed a past post from her royal highness Bonnie Burton
    “Even though the starwars. blog is outside of starwars.com FOR THE TIME BEING I assure you it’s official.”

    Cool, so does that mean this here blog will eventually become a part of the official site itself?

  53. bonniegrrl says:

    It sure does!๐Ÿ˜‰

    Best regards, Geoffrey.

  59. Joseph P. Centeno says:

    I ‘m the writer of Supernova/Episode VII: A New Beginning. A continuation of the Star Wars saga, this novel includes original characters such as King Han Solo & Boba Fett (Darth Hadak). Also newly distinguished characters like Princess Nova Skywalker & the clone of a Jedi Master. The story entales a war between two races of evolved clones. The Chameleons are in pursuit of a new galactic order, while the Cy-clones represent procreation and A New Beginning. . . .

    For more info on this sci-fi epic adventure, contact me at episode7supernova@gmail.com

  60. Joseph P. Centeno says:

    My episode 7 story co-stars Brandon Routh (Superman), along with characters like the Solo twins & Fett’s surprise apprentice.

  61. The force is strong with original Star Wars composer John Williams. He was also the one who made Superman fly. Check out the Indiana Jones official site and listen to the man who made you have to keep up with the jones’.

  62. Pace says:

    It might be cool to somehow mix the Star Wars & Superman theme scores for an Ep:7 co-starring Brandon Routh. Nice tribute to John Williams.
