It all began yesterday about 7:00 p.m. when my husband started to contemplate joining the line that was forming for Lucas' appearance at 8:45 the next morning. When he went down stairs to check it out, he was told that the line was going to be cleared at some point and no one would be allowed to line up until after midnight. So he and his friend took a quick cat nap from 8 o'clock until midnight because the knew they weren't going to get much sleep in line. When they got down there a little after 12 p.m. the line had already made it around the corner of the street. Oh wait, did I mention that there was a thunderstorm last night with temperatures hovering in the low 40's? Some time in the early morning, my husband was interviewed by Fox news and his friend was asked to provide the station with pictures of George Lucas.
After the Lucas appearance the three of us headed down to the Fan Club Lounge to catch a glimpse of Jake Lloyd, young Anakin Skywalker, from Episode I. We managed to get our picture (a crappy picture, but a picture no less) taken with him.
When we got through there, we walked to another room to watch the Kenny Baker (R2D2) and David Prowse (Darth Vader) interview, hosted by Warwick Davis.
Then it was off to the Episode III Spectacular. The spectacular consists of a long-version trailer and a Q&A with Rick McCallum, the Producer of Star Wars.
