Star Wars Celebration: Your Guide To Surviving The Star Wars Convention

Stormtroopers, Jedis, Wookies and a whole bunch of Kylo Rens have landed in Chicago. Members of the Star Wars fandom have traveled from galaxies far, far away to attend the Star Wars Celebration at McCormick Place. The convention kicked off yesterday and runs through Monday, and will be filled with movie and show reveals, panels, celebrity signings and photo ops. A five-day convention of this magnitude requires some help, so Morning Shift enlists Entertainment Weekly reporter Anthony Breznican and Star Wars podcaster and superfan Lacey Gilleran as our SWCC guides.

GUESTS:

Anthony Breznican, reporter for Entertainment Weekly

Lacey Gilleran, host and reporter for Star Wars News Net and all-around Star Wars Superfan
