Star Wars At Comic Con 2008

Posted By Mike on August 6, 2008

Comic Con 2008 is upon us and you can check out the links below to features on the main site getting you geared up for the big event. Don't forget to also keep up with Rebelscum's coverage right here!

See the intro below from Starwars.com and then click here for the full rundown.


"As it does each year, Lucasfilm will have a major presence at San Diego Comic-Con International, dominating the convention floor space with a huge pavilion celebrating all things Star Wars, with special attention given to the next exciting chapter of the saga: the all-new animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie and television series.

Throughout the convention, the pavilion will be the place to visit for must-see Star Wars items from Lucasfilm and its licensees, as well as certain special events:


Official Pix will host Star Wars Saga autograph guests throughout the show.

DK Publishing will have special author signings throughout the convention. Please see DK booth for schedule.

Mimobot will award a Star Wars costume contest winner live every day at 3:00 pm.

Hallmark will give away a 2008 Keepsake ornament every hour throughout the show.

Another key event at the convention is the Star Wars Fan Movie Awards Ceremony. On Thursday, July 24 at 8:30 -- 10:30 pm head to Ballroom 20 to see the finalists and award winners for the annual Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge. Who will win the coveted grand prize and be selected by George Lucas as the best of the best? And which one will win the fan's choice award (don't forget to vote here).

The big day, though, is Friday, July 25 -- Star Wars day. Here's a run-down on events slated for that day."
