Congers, NY (March 4, 2008) – The Force will be strong at this year’s Wizard World Los Angeles, the 3-day family friendly pop culture and comic convention being held at the L.A. Convention Center March 14-16. Prequel stars Ray Park (Darth Maul) and Daniel Logan (Young Boba Fett) will be attending the convention to sign autographs and talk to fans about their characters’ places in the franchise. The duo appears courtesy of Galactic Productions. Additionally, Zachariah Jensen, who portrayed Jedi Master Kit Fisto, will be on hand to keep the Sith in their place while greeting fans as well. Also, Lucasfilm will be represented by its Director of Fan Relations, Steve Sansweet, who is hosting panels on Saturday and Sunday. Members of the famed Star Wars fan club The 501st Vader’s Fist will be available for photos and The New York and LA Jedi will be performing lightsaber demonstrations throughout the weekend.
Sansweet’s panels on March 15 at 1:30 p.m. and March 16 at 11 a.m. will showcase the exciting year that’s coming for fans of the beloved Star Wars saga. He is bringing a sneak peek for Wizard World attendees of the eagerly awaited animated television series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” He will be sharing insights into the project from those closest to the creative process and the series development. Additionally, Sansweet will provide a glimpse of the game play from “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed,” the ground-breaking new game from LucasArts that promises to make players feel like they are inside the next chapter of the Star Wars Saga.
Finally, with the release of the upcoming “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” on May 22, the panels would not be complete without at least a few exclusive tidbits from the highly anticipated next chapter of the Indy story.
“What can be said that has not already been said about fan love for all things Star Wars,” said Wizard Entertainment Senior Vice President of Operations Joe Yanarella. “We are thrilled to be able to bring this panel to our attendees for a look at the next chapter of the Star Wars Saga. It is a great addition to our programming lineup.”
