Lucas to attend CIII
« on: April 5, 2005, 09:21 PM »
It's official as of moments ago.  Lucas called me and wanted to stay in my hotel room.

I told him "Geez George, you're a freaking billionaire, get your own room!"  So it looks like he's officially coming ;^)

Serious.

Pretty brave of George to show up, considering he must know he's gonna get bombarded with questions/derogatory comments about Jar Jar, too much CGI, horrid dialogue, childish fart and poop jokes, etc.

But still cool nonetheless to show up and thank all of his fans for sticking with him through it all.  That's gonna be a bitch of a show to get into though...  :-\

Damn, you guys are quick.  I just was cruising the net and stumbled across that at sw.com. 

Anyways, awesome news, I guess I'll get my MR sabers and go stand in line for the rest of the day then  :P.

I don't know if I want to see this or not.

The crowds might become filled with wookie rage, and crucify Lucas for Jar Jar and such.  :-\

I'd like to see him...  It's one of the few things I'd always appreciate having done I think.  Being "near" Lucas, the cause for my hobby as it stands today.

I don't agree with his artistic visions all the time, but it's his thing too.  I loathe revision over any mistakes his made in the prequals.  To me that's bastardizing art.

I'll definitely see him because he's done more good for me than bad.  That much I can safely say in my heart.  I'd love to have a chat with him, that'd rock.

I'd say that's up in the air at this point (no pun about it wofting about either). 

He could have substantial funk.  He appears to never change out of that F'n Flannel shirt though.

He won't be there Friday I can guarantee it because that is now the only day I can make it.  Or I will be in line for the C3 figure and miss him.  Or be in line for Admiral Ozzel and Amy Allen's autographs and then miss him.  LOL!

I think it would be nice to see the man really.

It'd be nice to see him, but I'm not gonna spend the entire four days in the line to get in. I'll content myself with standing 600 ft away at the edge of the crowd and peering at him through binoculars.

I can't go there and NOT see Lucas.  Heather and I had this tradition at C2 of lining up an hour or two early so we could be in the very front for panels we really wanted to see. I mean, after all, there's nothing like being 6 feet from Carrie Fisher (except being 6 feet from her 20 years ago).

I imagine the lines for Lucas will be insane. If they don't announce exactly where and when he's going to show up (which seems to be the plan), you'll probably have people showing up at every damn panel just in hopes that they'll see him.  AAAARGH!

Got Clones?

Should we make wagers?
 I think he's going to be at the Fan Film Awards because he seems to really like those, encouraging the future film makers of the future, blah blah blah, etc, etc, etc...

That is the problem.  We probably won't know when or where he'll be.  There will be rumors all over the convention.  "He's there at 11.  No, he's over there at 2pm.  No, he's here at 1pm." 

I just don't know.  I'd like to see the guy but...

Well I knew he would be there the day I would not be :( 
Oh well even if I was there it sounds like I would most likely miss him.  Three times early in the morning.
