For everyone who was not able to attend the Book Expo America 2013 Star Wars panel, the video is up online. It has a short skit from William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, a hoola hooping Leia, and at the 00:15:30 mark, trivia with authors Jason Fry and Matthew Reinhart. Audiobook narrator Marc Thompson comes on at the 33 minute mark to voice a scene from Troy Denning’s Crucible where Leia, Han and Lando get blown up by an asteroid. The panel finishes with a video for Star Wars Reads Day with clips of Timothy Zahn, Ryder Windham, Chris Reiff, Matthew Reinhart, James Luceno, Jeffrey Brown, John Jackson Miller, Jason Fry, and Pablo Hidalgo from Star Wars Celebration VI (which starts at the 41 minute mark).

And speaking of Star Wars Reads Day, a few Star Wars celebrities have already confirmed their participation and where they’ll be at.

  • Star Wars artists Chris Trevas, Joe Corroney and Brian Rood will be in Ann Arbor, MI (via Facebook)
  • Star Wars author Timothy Zahn will be in Portland, OR (via Facebook)
  • Star Wars authors Martha Wells and Aaron Allston will be in Austin, TX (via Martha Wells’ blog)
  • Star Wars author John Jackson Miller will be in Madison, WI (via Facebook)

No word yet on which Star Wars guests will be attending the events, however it’s a safe bet that Timothy Zahn will be in the Washington/Oregon area, Aaron Allston and Drew Karpyshyn in Texas and Troy Denning and John Jackson Miller in Wisconsin since those events are near to where the authors live.
