The whole world was at a standstill during J. J. Abrams panel during Star Wars Celebration VII in Anaheim California while the second Star Wars Episode 7 The Force Awakens Trailer. It was a truly profound experience that brought tears to many people’s faces to include myself. We got to see the new stars of the new Star Wars Trilogy and we got to see the old stars that we have all grown so attached to over the past 35 years.
To everyone’s delight we got to see many new costumes and characters. At Star Wars Celebration all of the fans who attended where privileged to get to see some of the new characters costumes from Episode VII, but it did not come without sacrifice. There was an average wait time of 3 hours just to get into the exhibit. The line wrapped around the whole second floor of the Anaheim convention center. Lots of people grew impatient and complained about the wait, some people left the line because the wait was just too long, but for those who patiently waited until the go into the exhibited felt it was so worth it and was a magical experience. On display were several costumes and props from the Millennium to the all new Flame Trooper we even got to see the new droid that has gained a lot of attention BB-8. This was truly one of the highlights of Star Wars Celebration and I could have stood there for hours but there were others waiting to get in. With Star Wars having so many creatures species and characters I am sure we will see lots more come the premier of Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens December 18, 2015. Until then we will all have to wait.
