Months before Star Wars Celebration V comes to Orlando, fans can feel the Force at Reed Exhibitions' Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), at McCormick Place, April 16-18, 2010 in downtown Chicago. The event will include Star Wars celebrities, autographs and an exclusive collectible t-shirt that can only be found at the show.
In addition, Reed Exhibitions is producing Star Wars Celebration V – in cooperation with Lucasfilm – at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from August 12-15.
Special Star Wars C2E2 guests include:
- Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia Organa) A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi (Scheduled for Saturday & Sunday only)
- Ray Park (Darth Maul) The Phantom Menace
- Daniel Logan (Young Boba Fett) Attack of the Clones
- Amy Allen (Jedi Aayla Secura) Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith
- Orli Shoshan (Jedi Shaak Ti) Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith
- Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Revenge of the Sith
Organizers note that in addition to the opportunity to meet stars, collectors will have the chance to get their hands on an exclusive Celebration V/C2E2 t-shirt that will only be available to those who purchase their tickets for Celebration V at C2E2. The t-shirt gives a nod to both shows.
In addition to the celebration on the show floor, there will be activity on stage as well. Lucasfilm's official presentation begins at 1:15pm on Saturday, April 17th in the IGN Theater, with Steve Sansweet exploring the past, present and future of Star Wars – from the 30th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back to the weekly animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the upcoming Star Wars Celebration V.
Sunday is Kids Day at C2E2. Kids of all ages can learn to draw The Clone Wars characters at the Variant Stage at 1:00pm with Star Wars artists Katie Cook and Grant Gould. Drawing paper and pencils will be provided, or budding artists can bring their own sketchbooks.
