I've been fed this week on social media with everyone's amazing recaps, threads, and photo albums of their time in Chicago, it definitely helps soften the con drop. This was my fourth Celebration (the first was Anaheim in 2015), and the love among fans was absolutely palpable. For the franchise, for the artists who create it, for each other.
I'm tucking back into post-production, but wanted to share some of what I filmed at Celebration. Over 100 people let me point a camera at them for our b-roll last weekend, but unlike Orlando in 2017, this year so many folks knew about Looking for Leia and were excited to connect with us. And we were thrilled to connect with all of you!
The recap reel features an arrangement of Rey's Theme created by Kate Burns and performed by singers from the Archer School for Girls. It's just one of the pieces created for Looking for Leia, we can't wait to share the rest.
