2010 Celebration V Confirmed by Hasbro
« on: July 23, 2009, 11:07 AM »
Celebration V has been confirmed for 2010!

Hasbro launched a new Clone Wars Diorama contest and one of the parts of the grand prize is that the winner will ..."have their scene displayed at the 2010 Star Wars Celebration!"


I wonder if LFL is going to be ticked that Hasbro leaked it before they could give it the big announcement treatment at Friday's panel?   :P

Fantastic news.

As a side note, I saw the diorama that was put together for CIV by a few JDers.  It was awesome.   8)

Unless I'm missing something, it says the "Next" Star Wars Celebration.  So I'm not sure its confirmed for 2010??

It's been confirmed by LFL, but no location or date release yet.

From the G4 blog:

Quote
5:56 Stephen Johnson:  The next Star Wars Celebration will be held in.... 
5:57 Stephen Johnson:  oops. there is no exact time or place, but Star Wars Celebration 5 will be held next summer.

Yeah, that narrowed it down. Summer in the US is like what, Memorial Day weekend to the Labor Day weekend? (May-September).

How in Sam's hell can you make an announcement on CV if you don't have a place or date yet. Nice blunder!   ::)

Perhaps Hasbro jumping the gun forced LFL to make the announcement that it would be happening but couldn't go into detail for contractual reasons such as the paperwork not being set in stone, an agreed upon method for making the announcement (G4 is showing the spectacular tomorrow, perhaps the details are to come there in added bit), or maybe the Lucas gang just likes ******* with us.

From StarWars.com's ComicCon coverage:

Quote
Sansweet teased that next year is the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, and that it’s the perfect opportunity for a Star Wars Celebration. “We don’t have yet have an exact date or place, but we are in the planning stage of Star Wars Celebration V, coming to your galaxy next summer.”

All said, it's the same **** I knew about last year. Maybe we will get a 5 month notice like what was it, Celebration Japan?  ::)

I'm still voting for Minneapolis.  I know the MN guys would be bummed, but I could drive that one.
