Panels, parties, and.. people? Friends? Let’s go with friends. In this episode Teresa and Aaron recap their highlights from Dragon Con 2014.
They also had the privilege of moderating a couple Star Wars author panels! We have included the audio from the “Tropes in Star Wars” panel featuring fan favorite authors Timothy Zahn and Christie Golden.
And we may have gotten Christie to talk a little about the upcoming Ventress/Vos novel.
Keep an eye on your feeds because we will also be releasing another episode featuring the audio from the “Star Wars Legends” panel.
Our third day at Dragon Con began, for Bethany and Riley, with the Sam Witwer panel! Hosted by Bryan Young, this panel was a really fun one with Sam talking about what it was like being Starkiller, Darth Maul, and a zombie extra on The Walking Dead. A true Star Wars fan, he seemed to really enjoy the panel himself, and spoke enthusiastically about Star Wars themes, characters, and behind the scenes experiences.
This past weekend saw Dragon Con come and go. Fans of everything from Doctor Who to Harry Potter met in Atlanta to costume, hang with friends, and generally geek-out over all their favorite things. For us Star Wars fans though, there was one place at the con we just had to congregate. The Star Wars Track room at the Marriott. This is where you could find all the great Star Wars panels and a room packed full of like-minded fans.
One such panel took place on Friday and was titled “Goodbye Clone Wars, Hello Rebels.” The title kind of gives you an idea what the panel was all about. Fans from a number of different Star Wars fan sites were on the panel to discuss the passing of the animated series The Clone Wars and also to welcome the new animated series coming in October, Star Wars Rebels.
