I'm very excited to finally announce that I, along with two very special guests, will be presenting From World War to Star Wars at Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando this August. Star Wars illustrators and prop experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas will join me on the Star Wars University Stage to share in-universe parallels and real-world connections between the Second World War and the Star Wars Universe. For the official scoop, check out the Celebration Page.
The project has been two years in the making for me. I've filled two notebooks full of great new content based on in-depth research from the films, The Clone Wars animated series, behind the scenes accounts, primary resources from the 1930s and 40s, and more. I'll be sharing some of the best discoveries during this one hour panel that will leave everyone with a fresh new perspective on the "Galaxy far, far away." The panel will also leave time for audience Q&A where Chris Trevas, Chris Reiff, and myself will be on hand to answer questions.
Stay tuned for much more about the event. I hope to see you there!
