Okay, here's what I'm psyched for at Celebration thus far:

1. Ian McDiarmid.

2. Temuera Morrison and Bonnie Piesse--finally I'll get Morrison's autograph and Piesse will complete my Aunt Beru collection (a friend got Shelagh Fraser's for me years ago, before she passed away).

3. The chance to maybe see a full episode of Clone Wars from Season 5.

4. Brent Woodside's lovely print--I guess to avoid the lines I'll have to bring enough cash to buy it so I don't use my credit card.

5. Going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal and hopping on the East Coast's answer to Star Tours 2.0 at Disney Hollywood Studios prior to the con.

I don't know what they have planned with this Closing Ceremonies (Sunday 2:30-3:30 p.m.) business, but given how unimpressive the Opening Ceremonies were for Celebration IV, I predict it will be lots of hype over nothing. Really, what could they possibly do other than show a new episode of Clone Wars that would be all of that exciting? Give everyone $50,000? And you can fit at most 2000 people in that auditorium so 90% of us will miss it anyway.

Don't think I'll be attending "An Evening With Kevin Smith" either. Okay, so he's a fan like us and has valiantly defended the prequels. I'm sure this version of the show will focus on Star Wars since it is at Celebration. But his show is a perennial at Comic Con and well, if you've seen any of his comedy routines or his movies once, you've seen it all.

Not really feeling the party scene. If one of my friends gets an invite, I'll go. Otherwise, meh. In any case, my friend Debbie, in her tireless quest to be the first person in and to grab the giveaways each and every morn, is sacked out by 10 and up while it's still dark. While all of you are hungover, I'm in line for the first big panel of the day.

They are still announcing events and guests, so we'll have to see what happens. I doubt at this point we're getting a huuuuuge surprise guest. It would be great if John Williams or Frank Oz showed up, but I don't think it's going to happen. But it would be kind of nice if Lucasfilm's new prezzy Kathleen Kennedy dropped by to meet the fans and reassure us she's not going to let it go off the rails.

Oh, who am I kidding? They'll bring back that dopey faux wedding gazebo.
