Podcasting, Ahsoka Lives Day, and Sharing Opinions at Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2015

Star Wars Celebration is almost here!

Thousands of fans are traveling to the Anaheim Convention Center in California to come together under one roof and celebrate what we love most. Experiencing this with fans I’ve met through social media gets me more excited about the event in general. When it comes to the exhibit hall, I can’t wait to visit the Her Universe booth and the space dedicated to Rancho Obi-Wan. In terms of panels, anything related to Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels sits at the very top of my list. Last but not least, I’m also thrilled to take the stage as a podcaster and panelist!

Here are the five events I’ll be speaking at during Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. Fangirl flail with me and you’ll get a “The Wookiee Gunner” button from me!

#AhsokaLives Day

Description: Love Ahsoka Tano? You’re not alone. We (we being Johnamarie Macias and Amy Ratcliffe) are so excited about the return of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars Rebels and we want to celebrate in style. We’re going to make the Friday of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim a special day: #AhsokaLives Day! All you have to do to participate is wear Ahsoka-related anything! T-shirts, costumes, costume t-shirts, face paint – you get the idea! As you might guess, Her Universe has a few options in the category. We’ll meet by the fountain in front of the Anaheim Convention Center (you can’t miss it!) for a group photo at 3:00pm. Whether you can make it to the group picture or not, take a photo of your outfit and be sure to tag it with #AhsokaLives! And you can participate even if you’re not at Celebration! Find out more about the event over at Facebook.
