CELEBRATION EUROPE: DAY TWO —  A Guest Blog by Walt Fishon

He is Mitth’raw’nuruodo, more commonly known as Thrawn. The individual behind the
thrawn blue face paint in the photo above remains a mystery, but he had one helluva day at Celebration Saturday.

When the day began, he was a character excised from the canon, leading a person walking by him  to ask, “How does it feel to know you don’t exist?” After the Rebels panel, he found himself posing for photo after photo, even one with Andi Gutierrez and Peter Townley, hosts of The Star Wars Show (check out Guitierrez’ Twitter for the photo).

By the end of the day, when asked if it was ok to take a photo, he apologized for his fading makeup. “It’s been quite a day!” he said.

A REBELS RECONNECTION

Becca's Chava Chat

JUST … IMAGES REALLY, FEELINGS …

If you were to ask me what I remember about Saturday, April 18th 2015, my answer would be: “Just … images really, feelings.” And yet, it’s a day that I’ll never forget.

No, this isn’t going to be a symbolic blog or even anything remotely close. Nor will it be, creatively or critically, thought-provoking. What it will be, is an open-window passageway, or reflection, on my personal experiences of that day; a Rebels reconnection.

Of course, by the time you read this post, some of you will have already seen the premiere of Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal,” but back then, on April 18th, that was not the case. In fact, I can’t even put into words, the amount of excitement and gratefulness that I still have, for all of those responsible in giving me such an awesome opportunity and a sea full of shoaling emotional memories. Hence the phrase, “just … images really, feelings.”
