Star Wars Celebration 2015 — Part 1 — WOW!

What a great time meeting fans and friends in Anaheim this April! The best thing about George Lucas’s films is that they have created a most wonderful community of caring, intelligent people. Fans not only wanted to talk about Star Wars — but also about Empire of the Wolf!

I can’t wait to “Celebrate” again in London. In the meantime, here are some great photos my friends the Guerreros sent to me of my Star Wars Rebels book signing on Sunday morning, which I shared with with true literary luminaries: James Kahn and Alan Dean Foster, the respective authors of Return of the Jedi and the original Star Wars novelizations.
