40 Years of Star Wars Celebration photo gallery

Ten years from now I’m really going to need to make sure I’m on hand for the 50 Years of Star Wars. For now, I’m going to enjoy seeing the stars of my favorite franchise coming together and reflecting on 40 Years of Star Wars. And this big event featured just about everyone. From Mark Hamill to Harrison Ford, George Lucas, Peter Mayhew and Hayden Christensen. Seeing the gang almost all reunited made it all the more glaring the absence of Carrie Fisher and Kenny Baker, who both died last year.

Of course this is all a fantastic prelude to tomorrow when the first trailer for Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi drops. Judging by all the excitement of the fake fan trailer, the Thor: Ragnarok trailer won’t hold the record for the most viewed trailer this year much longer.

Hot Toys also previewed some exciting upcoming releases with the debut of the Baze from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And also the Royal Guard. They may as well pack them two to a case. Can’t see any way people aren’t going to want at least a pair to flank Vader and The Emperor.
