CEII: Kathleen Kennedy Makes Her Star Wars Convention Debut
Posted by Eric on July 27, 2013 at 04:32 AM CST |
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy made a big splash at Celebration Europe II during her first Star Wars convention appearance. You can check out StarWars.com's panel liveblog right here. Here are a few highlights from the blog:
  • 11:10: Typical day? Kennedy spends part of her time at Lucasfilm, then the rest of the week with Abrams and the writing team at Bad Robot. They do a lot of Skyping and sit in long, lengthy story meetings. “Great stuff is coming out of those discussions.” At the Presidio office of Lucasfilm, she is in Lucas’ old office. Lucas is still at Skywalker Ranch.
  • 11:13: Which character in Star Wars do you like the most? Kennedy tells a story about how when one of her daughters was 3, she was obsessed with Darth Vader. Lucas sent Darth Vader to her birthday party, which she loved, but all the other kids were terrified.
  • 11:19: Is there something you can tell us about Episode VII, Davis asks… “I had breakfast with someone very important to the Star Wars family last Friday, and he has committed to working on the next three Star Wars films. And that is Mr. John Williams.” HUGE ovation!
Check out the video that screened immediately after the John Williams announcement:
