Snapshots from Star Wars Celebration VI (Part 2 of 3)

One of the best parts about attending Star Wars Celebration is meeting the actors and crew from the films, many of them childhood heroes (well, maybe adult-hood heroes too).

Warwick Davis and I. Warwick starred as an ewok in Return of the Jedi, had the leading role in Lucasfilm's Willow, and played many parts in the Harry Potter films, among other things. Warwick has long been a real hero for kids big and small.

Daniel Logan plays Boba Fett in The Clone Wars, and young Boba in Attack of the Clones. This guy doesn't sit still--watch him--he has a bright future ahead of him.

Ben Burtt, legendary sound editor for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, ET and many more treasured films. In my opinion he's just as good as meeting George Lucas himself (who did come to the event, but mostly stayed out of sight).

Anthony Daniels is a real super-trooper, coming out every morning to greet fans in line and walking around the exhibition hall for photo ops. Very gracious guy.

Jeremy Bulloch, the original Boba Fett from Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. A living legend.

Jabba the Hutt, who taught me everything I know. 

An evening with Kevin Smith. He was hilarious--and very relatable, which made his humor all the more poignant. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a photo with Jabba or Kevin.

Stay tuned for part 3.
