    where’s McGregor ?

    Too much to ask for a TLJ teaser poster after the trailer drops? Granted it will likely be more MCU Photoshop 101 crap but better than nothing.

    Has Denis Lawson attended these events recently? I missed Wedge in Force Awakens, so I’m hoping his participation at Celebration is a sign that he’ll participate in a future star wars project. It’d be nice to see him in a surprise cameo in Last Jedi.

      I saw some guys tweet a pic of Denis Lawson’s autograph that he got yesterday at SWCO. But I don’t think he’s doing a panel…not the 40th or TLJ panels anyway.

        Thanks for your response. Oh well, I hope we can see Wedge again at some point.
