We were standing in the Hall H press cage (no really, that’s what it’s called, it’s a little pen by the side of the stage, they keep us quarantined) waiting for the panel to start, and we heard the guys from TheConGuy.com say that this was going to be the biggest event in Comic-Con history.
Thinking it over, they’re right. No disrespect to any other well-loved franchise, but what else can compare to the 15 years we’ve waited for this movie? Sure we had Comic-Con announcements before the Prequels, but we knew none of the original cast would be in those films. This time is different. The footage we’ve seen gives us hope, the interviews sound promising, and we know that the three characters we know best, played by the three actors who gave them life the first time around, are going to be a part of it all.
And the panel at Hall H lived up to everything we’d hoped for.
