    Re: C4? Would it, should it, could it????

    It should just be every 3 years, and be called Star Wars Celebration. Numbering the Celebration would get tedious every three years.

    C3: Celebration 4 in 2007?

    Posted By Joshua on April 29, 2005
    Lucasfilm is by no means ready to announce it, but it appears there's another Celebration planned for 2007. According to our sources, fans are expected to gather officially once again for the 30th anniversary of Star Wars. Lucasfilm denied the rumors, saying nothing official has been said yet. We've hear reports on television and received rumors from fans that this might not be entirely accurate. Warwick Davis was reported to even have said, "See you at Celebration 4!" at the end of his time as MC on stage.

    It is generally accepted that Indy would probably be the logical choice yet again for the next Celebration, especially since in a non-movie year attendance would be expected to be lower. Of course, there could easily be the first season of the live-action TV show complete and the 30th anniversary complete DVD collection to contend with for fans attention.

    Either way, we're expecting that once the Episode III DVD is out the door this fall, you'll begin to see a shift in focus on the part of Lucasfilm. It will be time to talk about TV, the ultimate DVD set and getting together with Star Wars fans for another big party.

    Stay tuned to TFN for everything that may be related to Celebration 4 and the new Lucasfilm direction, coming soon to a television near you.





    Just someone else's opinion on it! Sounds good!

    I wouldn't mind seeing it in another city, as there have been 2 in Indy now (although I don't mind returning to Indy either). Just get a different company to handle it.

    I think there will be, and I'll definitely go again. The 30th Anniversary would be great, and it would be awesome if they were to premiere either the 3D versions of the films there, or the TV show there.

    I think if they continue with these, they should do them about every 3 years or so. It could be cool, if they had a sort of traveling Celebration and every one was in a different city, which might give some more people a chance to go; on the other hand, there's not much to do in Indy, but it is easy to find food around the convention center.

    I actually liked Indianapolis. It's close, which is good for me but the area isn't congested, lots to eat around there, not a far drive to various shopping venues, lot's of hotels, central location in the United States. It is great. Hope it is there again.

    I didnt go to C3,but I would most likely go to a C4. The only problem for me would it would have to be held in the summer non-schools months.I think there would be a lot more attendance during that time,instead of April or May.

    As much as the Indy Convention Center annoyed me (layout wise, it sucks), I'd still prefer a central location like Indy. Even Chicago works for me (although that isn't as central).

    Personally, I think Chicago could do a better job. The McCormick Place is HUGE (inside and out), and could easily do a better job than Indy's convention center. The tough part is that Indy has 5-6 hotels within walking distance of the convention center (3 of which have crosswalks to it.....although Crowne Plaza's walkway is worthless since it leads outside and you couldn't get into the convention center from the doors at the end of the walkway). Chicago has 1 hotel that is attached to the McCormick Place, and another 1 or 2 that are basically within walking distance, but thats about it (that I can remember). There are others close by, but I wouldn't walk from them to the McCormick Place. On the plus side, Chicago has alot more for night-life and shopping than Indy does.

    There are numerous problems with having the convention in Chicago. The first is we like to tax the beegeezus out of everything. You see our mayor, Daley, likes to beautify the city so there are entertainment taxes, "pop" taxes, film taxes, etc. The location of McCormick place is another problem. With it being on the lake, it really kills your points of access and egress. Parking would be difficult, there would be serious traffic congestion. It would be easy for me because of living here, but I enjoy taking the trip.

    I was talking to one of the locals and they said that they are planning on building a new convention center and dome because they are losing a lot of conventions. So hopefully by the time the next Celebration comes around, there's a new center for it.

    I think indy is the best spot right now b/c its very central to everyone. I'd hate to have to drive more west then that . . 11 hours in the car was bad enough . . and I don't like to fly.

    Rick McCullum said at the Episode III Spectactular that he's ready to party again if we are . . so that to me sounds like a positive sign that there will be another Celebration. If there is I will be there and in costume this time . . . .

    TFN has another update on C4. if they do happen to do another Celebration, it might be in Vegas. and GenCon will most likely not be in control this time. since they botched up the event with horrible time slots and lines that lead into other lines just to get in line for the event you wanted to see. but, i will def. go to C4 if it happens. http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/s...r_C4_91952.asp

    i guess the whole "what happens in indy, stays in indy" quote from you guys was a foreshadowing for the future event.
