See the Star Wars Report Staff at Dragon Con 2014

Hello there!

Dragon Con has always been one of my favorite Conventions to attend as a Star Wars fan, and I’m happy to announce that the SWR staff will be there in Force (pun intended). Dragon Con is the biggest geek convention in the Southeast, featuring many fandoms, forms of entertainment, dealers’ halls, panels, media personalities, parties, and more! The Star Wars fan track is run by Brandy Roatsey and a team of other Star Wars fans, featuring this year Star Wars authors, actor Sam Witwer, and other media guests and fans.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and keep on eye on our site for coverage! It’s going to be an absolute blast! The following is what you can expect to see from the Star Wars Report staff at Dragon Con as well as where you can find us this year.

  • Live tweeting of panels
  • Pictures
  • Podcast episodes covering the convention
  • Written panel recaps
  • Video of the convention

You can find Bethany Blanton and Riley Blanton as panelists on these two panels:

  • A Farewell to The Clone Wars and Hello Rebels (Marriott-A706)
  • Episode VII (Marriott-A601-602)

You can expect to find Aaron Goins and Teresa Delgado as hosts on these two panels:

  • A New Trope: Discussions with Star Wars Authors (Marriott-A706)
  • EU Legends: Authors Edition (Marriott-A706)

Expect to find all four of us at many other panels and events throughout the weekend! Be sure to drop by and say “hi,” and have fun at Dragon Con! Wear your finest at the Suits, Sinatra, and Star Wars mixer, party like it’s your last party on Alderaan, and remember to wear your Hawaiian/Aloha, or brightly colored shirts, on Sunday to remember A.C. Crispin and Aaron Allston.

Convention starts tomorrow folks!
