Star Wars Celebration V Heading to Orlando, Fla.

swcelebrationvLucasfilm has chosen the Orange County Convention Center as the official site for Star Wars Celebration V in August 2010. Tickets go on sale Dec. 10, 2009.

Star Wars Celebration is the official Lucasfilm event celebrating all things Star Wars and it is produced by fans for fans. They are the largest Star Wars parties, featuring cast and crew celebrities, fans, costumes, music, live entertainment, autographs, collectibles, and panels — but primarily friends who gather to have fun and celebrate their love for the saga.

The first Celebration took place in 1999, and this fifth Celebration will honor the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
