CVI: From World War To Star Wars

Posted By Mike on August 4, 2012

Our friend Cole Horton sent over a CVI programming announcement regarding a unique panel being conducted by himself, Chris Reiff, and Chris Trevas in the Star Wars University Room...




Coming to Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida:
'From World War to Star Wars'


The Second World War not only changed the world in which we live; it shaped and defined the Star Wars universe we love. From World War to Star Wars explores the interesting and unexpected ways that "a long time ago" influenced George Lucas' "galaxy far, far away."

Join historian Cole Horton and Star Wars illustrators Chris Reiff & Chris Trevas as they give fans a rare look into the in-universe parallels and real-world connections between the Second World War and the Star Wars Universe. This one-hour presentation and Q&A in the Star Wars University Room will feature unparalleled insight into the rise of two empires, how the war built the Millennium Falcon, the story of how Alec Guinness became an unlikely war hero, and how World War II relics were used to build the Star Wars galaxy.

Star Wars fans and history buffs alike won't want to miss this unique, family-friendly presentation. Time and date to be announced soon. For tickets and travel information for Star Wars Celebration VI, head on over to http://www.starwarscelebration.com/. Follow Cole, Chris and Chris on twitter: @ColeHorton, @Chris_Reiff, and @ChrisTrevas
