Well, I’m back from Celebration Orlando. A grand time was had by all. Or at least by most. Probably by all. It wasn’t without its hiccups, but what large gathering of 60,000 people isn’t? The short version of my experience is this: It was great to see some friends again after 2 years, and great to meet some new friends for the first time, including my Comics With Kenobi co-host, the illustrious Mr. Matt Moore. There were a few nice surprises, which I’m sure you’ve read about already: Harrison Ford and George Lucas onstage for the 40th Anniversary Panel, John Williams playing Princess Leia’s theme as part of a tribute to Carrie Fisher, and the reveal of the teaser for The Last Jedi, to name just a few. There was one moment that was simultaneously somewhat surprising and not shocking in the least. Read on to find out what it was!
Coffee With Kenobi’s Dan Zehr was kind enough to appear on my Star Wars collecting podcast, The Sandcrawler this week to offer tips and advice if you’re heading to Star Wars Celebration Orlando in April. Read more
Ok, it’s been a month since I saw the Rogue One. As if a new Star Wars movie wasn’t enough news, we also have the passing of Carrie Fisher to contend with. My second viewing of the film just happened to be on the day her death was announced, so the final shot of the film took on even more significance than it ordinarily would have. “Hope,” she said. The Tantive IV took off, the familiar John Williams music started, and the credits rolled. Upon my first viewing, I was smiling. Upon my second, I was still smiling, but it was a bittersweet grin, since it was achieved with the knowledge of Ms. Fisher’s demise. Where would things go from here?

It’s time for the tenth episode of Lattes with Leia! Since it’s nearly Halloween, we thought it was a perfect time to discuss costumes. We cover our Star Wars cosplay, discuss some results of a cosplay study Drea did, and touch on the costume design of the films. Listen and then share your thoughts on the subject and your Star Wars cosplay pics with us.

Don’t call it a comeback! Because….it’s really not. Sorry I missed the last couple of blogs, but I hope you’ll forgive my absence. To paraphrase Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, “Life finds a way…to get in the way.” I won’t bore you with the details, but I would like to thank all my Coffee With Kenobi family for their kind words and support. And now….the main event.
