The week-long "coverage" of Star Wars Celebration I continues on the main site with the feature story that was originally printed in Star Wars Insider #45.
See the excerpt below:
"Splish Splash, the Star Wars Celebration was a Smash! Fans from all corners of the globe descended on Denver, Colorado April 30-May 2, 1999, for the grand three-day event, hailed on the scene as a "Star Wars Woodstock." For those 30,000 in attendance, the Celebration was like a birthday party you'd anticipated for over 10 years.
Lucasfilm made available seven actors and eight technical artists from Episode I to attend the convention. Props and costumes were shipped out and put on display, some for the first time. Dozens of Star Wars licensees unveiled their Phantom Menace wares. Two massive tents were erected to hold audiences of 1,500 apiece."
