The pop culture convention draws a wide cross section of fans eager to meet and greet the creators, actors, writers, musicians and artists. As noted, the original poster art will be widely used to promote the show as well as to create a distinct identity for the 2012 edition of New York Comic Con.

Once again, Marvel Entertainment will have a 3000 square foot booth on the show floor at NYCC where attendees will have ample room and opportunity to mingle with creators and staff including Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment, and Axel Alonso, Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief.

Throughout the hooley, guests can belly up to one of Raglan Road's 130-year-old imported-from-Ireland bars or grab a table for authentic fare by Irish celebrity chef Kevin Dundon.

Exclusive Star Wars Celebration VI Photos and Video - Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5 Red Carpet

Starkiller, Sam Witwer (voice of Darth Maul), and Darth Maul himself on the red carpet. Photo by Kristen Hoetzel.
We were among the attendees of Star Wars Celebration VI and were honored that Lucasfilm invited us to cover the red carpet for Season Five of Star Wars: The Clone Wars from from Lucasfilm Animation.

Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) with Darth Maul
The Digital Stage at Celebration VI was tricked out for high-definition digital theatrical exhibitions with state-of-the-art surround sound and it was rockin'! They kicked things off with a special presentation of the Season Four finale, the episodes "Brothers" and "Revenge." These are followed by "Revival," the long-awaited Season Premiere, on Cartoon Network this fall, that continues the story of the resurrected Darth Maul.


Maul and Savage Opress continue to wreak havoc in the galaxy. As part of Maul's wicked master plan, the Sith brothers recruit a cutthroat band of pirates. Obi-Wan Kenobi leads the Jedi hunt for Maul, which results in a lightsaber-clashing confrontation that will prove deadly.


Following the screening, there will be a Q&A session with supervising director Dave Filoni along with special guests from the series.


Check out our LIVE streaming coverage from the RED CARPET!

Star Wars Celebration VI: Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith 3D Releases Set for Fall 2013


Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox have announced the official release dates for the 3D theatrical launch of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Attendees at the closing ceremony for Star Wars Celebration VI, the franchise's massive fan event, learned that the epic movies that chronicle the rise of the Galactic Empire will be released back-to-back, with Episode II hitting theaters on September 20, 2013 and Episode III arriving soon after on October 11, 2013.

With its deeply detailed worlds and engulfing action, Star Wars is perfectly suited for the immersive 3D theatrical experience. Episode II and III deliver such captivating locales as the gleaming clone hatcheries of rain-swept Kamino, and the fiery lava planet of Mustafar as well as spectacular action sequences like Yoda's unforgettable debut as a lightsaber duelist, the explosive space and ground battles of the Clone Wars, and the dramatic showdown between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

Supervised by Industrial Light & Magic, the meticulous 3D conversion was undertaken by Prime Focus, the global visual entertainment services company. With their proprietary View-D™ process, Prime Focus transformed Episode II and III into 3D with the utmost respect for the source material, and with a keen eye for both technological consideration and artistic intentions.

Star Wars Celebration VI: Fantasy Flight Games Invites You to Beta Test "Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire" Roleplaying Game

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to invite you to the Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire beta test! For over three decades, the Star Wars universe has inspired the imaginations and captured the hearts of generations of fans. Now, we invite you to indulge your creativity and lose yourselves in the fantastic world of the Star Wars Roleplaying experience.


To encapsulate the operatic grandeur of the Star Wars universe, the Star Wars Roleplaying Game will be presented in three epic installments. These take place during the height of the Rebel Alliance’s struggle against the Galactic Empire. Star Wars: Edge of the Empire is the first of these installments, focusing on the fringes of society, on the scum and villainy of the galaxy and the explorers and colonists of the Outer Rim. In this game, players take on the roles of hard-hearted bounty hunters, roguish scoundrels, charming smugglers, or fearless explorers trying to survive and thrive on the edges of civilization. Visit our description page to learn more.

In the second installment, Star Wars: Age of Rebellion, the players take the fight to the oppressive Galactic Empire as cunning spies, cocky pilots, and dedicated soldiers in the Rebel Alliance. Finally, in Star Wars: Force and Destiny, the players become figures of legend; the last surviving Force users in the galaxy. Hunted by the Empire, they must stay alive, and more importantly, stay true to the ideals of their forebearers—the fabled Jedi. Each of these independent game lines stands alone as a unique gaming experience while fully integrating with the others to form a single unified system.

We here at FFG invite you to join us in the process of creating the best Star Wars Roleplaying experience possible. The Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Beta is a limited edition, 224-page softcover rulebook, and it's a complete game that provides players and Game Masters with all the tools they need to play countless games of Edge of the Empire.

However, it is important to note that some of the elements in this beta are not representative of the final product. Much of the art and background material has been removed to provide a more concise playtesting experience.


Submitting Feedback
There are two main methods for you to submit your feedback. First, we have message boards on the FFG website www.fantasyflightgames.com/edgeoftheempirebeta. You can use this board to discuss the beta test with the other people involved, post questions and feedback, and get news updates from the Star Wars Roleplaying Game team. Second, you can submit any specific reports or feedback directly to the development team at the beta test e-mail address.

When submitting your feedback via e-mail, it is most helpful to us if you consolidate all of your questions and comments into a single document for your entire group. This will help the development team here more easily organize and process all of your comments. We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to you for your enthusiasm and your diligence during this beta test. Your feedback is incredibly valuable to us and we thank you for helping us in making this game the best it can possibly be. We hope you enjoy the game and have many great adventures in Star Wars: Edge of the Empire!


Where can I find a copy?
Booth #739 at Star Wars Celebration VI!

Star Wars: Edge of the Empire is available on our webstore and through participating North American retailers (international customers should check back here in the coming weeks).

I'm a retailer interested in offering the Beta in my store.
Great! Check out our Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Beta Retailer Kit.

I have other questions...
And we have answers. Head to our description page for an in-depth Q&A.


Your Adventure Begins
Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire is a standalone roleplaying game experience that places players in the roles of hard-hearted bounty hunters, roguish scoundrels, charming smugglers, or fearless explorers trying to survive and thrive on the edges of civilization...and the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire beta test is your chance to be among the first to play! This limited edition, 224-page softcover rulebook provides you a chance to lead a band of explorers and help shape the fate of the galaxy!
