San Diego Comic-Con officially starts tomorrow and their will be plenty of Star Wars-related things to cover. We’ve been talking about The Clone Wars panel for awhile now but it looks like there will be a few more Star Wars panels. Unfortunately, Star Wars Resistance is not part of the lineup, oddly enough.

Michael Siglain (director, creative: Disney-Lucasfilm Publishing) and surprise panelists share previews and exclusive announcements about what should be on your must-read list from Star Wars publishing.
I always really enjoy going to the Hasbro Star Wars Panel to see all the new reveals. I’m hoping we get to see new Solo figures. On top of all these exciting panels Lucasfilm is also bringing the Millennium Falcon experience to SDCC!
“StarWars.com is excited to announce that the Lucasfilm Star Wars Pavilion (booth #2913) at San Diego Comic-Con is the next docking bay for the traveling Millennium Falcon Experience — a stunning life-size replica of the iconic ship’s cockpit. Cast from the original set used for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the attention to detail is incredible, from seats to the lightspeed levers. Fans will have the opportunity to go inside the cockpit with a few of their crewmates for a photo opportunity, which can be shared on social media; in other words, it’s time to practice your Han and Lando smiles.”
While it doesn’t seem like this will be a news-heavy Comic-Con, it definitely sounds exciting. As you all know my hope is we get some sort of The Clone Wars announcement, but we will know for sure this Thursday. For more details on Star Wars at SDCC, check out StarWars.Com.
