• Behind-the-Scenes of the Cantina at Celebration VI

      We were warned that "this place can be a little rough," but Star Wars fans can't help going back to the Mos Eisley Cantina over and over again. Celebration VI offers an in-depth exploration on the infamous watering hole from the original Star Wars, which includes some never before seen behind-the-scenes photos and artifacts from the creature-filled bar.




      Professional sculptor and effects artist Tom Spina, who was inspired by the astounding creatures in the film, has made it his mission to uncover and chronicle the history of this beloved scene, its characters and the artists responsible for its creation. Spina has tracked the whereabouts of original cantina props and masks, rare photos, and even notes and illustrations from the production. As a young artist, Spina learned to sculpt by re-creating the Star Wars aliens that inspired him. This year, he and his talented crew at Tom Spina Designs helped recreate the cantina for its memorable appearance in Volkswagen's 2012 Super Bowl Commercial.


      Spina will join Star Wars expert Pablo Hidalgo on the Behind-the-Scenes stage to discuss his research, show his creations, and reveal new secrets about the cantina. This panel is a must-see for fans of the original movie, creature effects enthusiasts, as well as those always seeking to learn something new about Star Wars.

      So his name isn't really Han Solo...

      I can see the tagline now... twice the smuggler, twice the scoundrel, twice the pilot... meet... Han Duo!

      His name is Hans Olo. They spelled it wrong on his driver's license and he didn't think it was worth fussing over.

      Maybe he's related to Boba Fett! I'm sure someone would think that was neat..

      The week before, I was in an X-Wing Miniatures tournament at a local game store. There were ten competitors. I won one of my four games, but the win

      He's an Organa, so his name should be Han Organa Solo Organa; and he's Leia's step-brother husband. It's meant to explain Kylo's messed-up attitude?

      I didn't see a thread for the new Han Solo movie, and I couldn't find a post about this.

      I liked the "Zero Hour" two part season finale. I'm glad that the show didn't get rid of Thrawn, who is such a strong character, the way that

      Timothy Zahn must've LOVED these two: Interdictor Cruisers, Thrawn in ground battle gear, his plans would've been flawless were it not for the (blatantly-obvious)
