Does anyone know who the guests are going to be? I have been trying to find out this information for some time now and can't find anything out about it. I'd like to know so I know if it will be worth me going. Can anyone help me here?

IMHO, it will be worth going just to say you've been to one.

I checked on the official website on 2-13, and the guests schedule still hasn't been updated.

I heard Anthony Daniels is supposed to be there.

Of course Anthony Daniels is going to be there. That's how he makes his living, doing conventions. Although I must say that he is way overpriced for autographs. I got him to sign some stuff of mine, but it cost $25 a pop, whereas everyone else at the convention only charged $10 a pop including Peter Mayhew, Warwick Davis, Maria De Aragon, Paul Blake, Michonne B., and Mike Edmonds to name a few. I hope they have some good guests. I would love to get some more stuff signed.

Does anyone know if the guest list for Celebration II is accurate over at theforce.net? The Celebration II site doesn't have any guests listed. Is this list just a rumor or are some of these actually confirmed and if they are then how come the offical Celebration II site doesn't have them listed yet?

There will be 30+ cast members from all 4 films attending.

So far, I have heard about:

"Slick Rick" McCallum
Billy Dee Williams
Anthony Daniels
Biggs
Porkins
Janssen
Gold Leader

As for autographs, you buy a coupon which you can redeem for an autograph. No word yet on how much they cost, but it is supposed to be "much less expensive than Star Wars celebrity autographs at other convention gatherings".

Here's some related articles:

I doubt they will be less than what I paid for autographs when I got them last year. I already have most of the peoples autographs who are attending and I paid $10 a piece for them except for Anthony Daniels, which for some odd reason seems to think that he can charge $25 an autograph even although he never did anything else but SW. I have heard rumors that it was going to be $15 a piece. Now that is getting a little expensive. If you figure roughly $15 a piece times 30 guests you get $450. Expensive, not to mention the $75 dollar cover charge for three days plus the exremeley overpriced $100+ hotel prices and airfare or gas put into traveling. I don't know if I have that kind of cash to go to this thing. Hats off to all of you that do.

There was an article on Friday on rebelscum.com that has the details about the autograph tickets. $15 for one, or $120 for a book of 10.

I haven't made up my mind whether I'm going to do it or not.

Do or do not...there is no try.

I received a bonus at work last week, so that would cover the cost. Now I'm waiting to see who some of the other celebrities are. I might have to pack my Aurra Sing figure in the suitcase!

Yeah. I'd definitely get a Ralph McQuarrie 'graph before i got one from Jeremy Bulloch. He wasn't even Boba in all the scenes and the Fett's most noticeable character attribute, his gruff voice, was provided by someone else. Bulloch just stood around. Dill.

The official SW site has a list of confimed actors and actresses coming to Celebration II. What I'm wondering is, why doesn't the official Celebration II site have anything on there yet? The event is only a month away and there is still nothing posted. What a lame site.

I found another website that had a listing of the guests. I will post a link to it in a few minutes.

Yes, I am just as surprised that the official convention site hasn't updated its info.

As promised, here is the link:
http://www.autographcentral.com/wattographs/special-offer.html

I found this link from another SW website. Apparently this company is going to sell autographs to people who can't make SW Celebration 2.

It is the most complete listing of guests I've came across so far. I found it April 2.
