Not long ago on Twitter I asked for your favorite Star Wars Celebration Europe memories and photographs for Bantha Tracks, the Star Wars fan newsletter. You sent some beauties, and we thank you for that!
This “photo book,” the final installment of a three-part online series, is a great teaser for what will appear in the December edition of Bantha Tracks in Star Wars Insider.
Star Wars Celebration Europe, in Essen, Germany, this past July, not only commemorated decades of the incredible galaxy far, far away and 30 years of Return of the Jedi, it transmitted crackles of excitement for both the new television series Star Wars Rebels and a brand new theatrical Star Wars movie planned for 2015.
It was thrilling to be a part of that excitement at a Celebration again, and I loved it. You loved the show, too, by the looks of your pictures, emails, and tweets.
Mancini says he was nervous wearing a costume at first, but relaxed after being asked to pose for photographs with many other costumers.
“I’m now confident enough to costume again at another Celebration,” concludes Mancini.
We’ll see you in Anaheim, Gary!
Mlotkowski sent some wonderful photographs to Bantha Tracks, including this glowing queen Amidala and the bevy of blue and white astromechs.
“I only wish it lasted a day or two more, there was so much to do, so many people to talk to.”
