Where to Find Me at Star Wars Celebration Orlando

Star Wars Celebration Orlando is nearly here! The ultimate gathering for Star Wars fans is happening from April 13-April 16. I'll be back as the host of the Behind-the-Scenes Stage and am so, so excited that they asked me to host again because I had a blast at Celebration Europe.

I'm looking forward to talking Star Wars with all kinds of awesome people for four days and to seeing my Star Wars fandom family. My Celebration schedule is just below!

What does being a stage host mean? It means I host/moderate most of the panels on my stage every day. That's where I'll be most of the convention. Here's the schedule for my stage. LEGO, Disney Parks merchandise, DK Publishing, Doug Chiang -- I have SO many cool panels I can barely stand it.

And a couple other schedule highlights:

Thursday, April 13 - I'll be at the Drowning in Moonlight: a Memorial Gala in honor of Carrie Fisher, get tickets here.

Friday, April 14 - I'll be hopping over to the Galaxy Stage for a very special panel from 3:30-4:30pm:
The Heroines of Star Wars
Strong female characters are central to the “Star Wars” universe. From Leia to Padmé, Rey, Jyn, Sabine and Ahsoka - each has become a fan favorite around the globe. Join Dave Filoni, Lucasfilm Story Group's Carrie Beck, Ashley Eckstein ("Ahsoka") and Tiya Sircar ("Sabine") for a talk about the importance of these role models, how they have inspired generations and where we might see them next!

Saturday, April 15 - Put on your favorite Ahsoka gear and come to the Ahsoka Lives Day photo at 2pm.

TL;DR: If you want to say hello, the best thing to do is grab me between panels at my stage. If you listen to Lattes with Leia, hit me up for a button!

Are you attending Celebration? Come to my stage. I hope we get to say hello. If you can't make it, I'll be posting as much as I can from the event on Twitter and Instagram -- especially Instagram Story!

Ahsoka Lives Day at Star Wars Celebration Orlando

It's almost time for Star Wars Celebration, and that means it's almost time for Ahsoka Lives Day!

When Ahsoka Tano returned to the Star Wars universe in the season 1 finale of Star Wars Rebels, Johnamarie Macias and I decided we wanted to celebrate the occasion at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in 2015. We held the first Ahsoka Lives Day and shared wonderful warm and fuzzy feelings with Ahsoka fans. We continued the tradition at Celebration Europe in 2016 and are gathering once again at Celebration Orlando in 2017.

Join us at 2:00pm on Saturday, April 15, at the Orange County Convention Center for a group photo. Wear your favorite Ahsoka gear -- a shirt, cosplay, accessories, etc! Partcipate at home with the hashtag #AhsokaLives. I'll try to assemble all the pictures together into a mosaic.

Get all the details you need here! I hope to see you there.

Girl Gang Twitch Stream for ACLU

It's time to Twitch!

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has our backs. They defend our rights and our freedoms, and this happens to be a time when we need that more than ever.

- The importance of staying creative in these turbulent times

and more!
