Celebration Europe News: Four Fetts and More Confirmed for Messe Essen

Celebration Europe, July 26-28 in Messe Essen, Germany, will be one of the biggest Star Wars parties ever -- and we now have even more exciting guests to reveal!

Four Fetts at Celebration for the First Time in Europe!

Boba Fett is one of the most popular characters of the Star Wars saga, and fans will have the chance to meet four actors who brought the iconic bounty hunter to life. This unprecedented collection of on-screen bad boys will be a first for Celebration Europe.

Over the course of Celebration Europe weekend, you can meet these actors in the Celebration Autograph Hall, run by Official Pix, and expect to see them on the Celebration Stage, too!

The four Fetts attending are:

Jeremy Bulloch: Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi; Captain Colton in Revenge of the Sith.

Daniel Logan: Young Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones, and the voice of the animated Boba in the three-part Season Two finale and in Season Four of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series.

Dickey Beer: Boba Fett stunt performer in Return of the Jedi.

John Morton: Boba Fett in Cloud City in a scene in The Empire Strikes Back.

Star Warriors Screening with Special Deleted Scenes

Back in 2006, George Lucas wanted to produce a Star Wars spectacular for the annual Tournament of Roses Parade in California, for New Year's Day, 2007. Central to his plan was bringing costumed Star Wars fans -- more than 200 Stormtroopers, Imperials, and Rebels -- to march from countries all over the world. Lucas specified that he wanted these troopers in the parade both to make it spectacular, and to thank the fans for the great work they do for charity and community.

Star Warriors tells the story of these marching fans, focusing on their selection, training, and participation in the 2007 Rose Parade. Produced by Kevin Burns and Prometheus Entertainment for Lucasfilm, the movie is a tribute to the 501st and Rebel Legions, the global organizations of Star Wars costuming enthusiasts, their charity and volunteer work, and of course their participation in the parade.

Star Warriors has previously only been shown on the big screen at Star Wars Celebration Japan in 2008. This special screening of Star Warriors at Celebration Europe will conclude with a selection of never-before-seen footage featuring the fans' preparation for the parade, focusing on the costumed fan groups from Europe.

Meet Leland Chee, Keeper of the Lucasfilm Holocron

Since 2000, Lucasfilm has used the Holocron continuity database to internally track all the fictional elements of the Star Wars universe across all mediums, including the films, television, books, games, and online. Lucasfilm's official "Keeper of the Holocron," Leland Y. Chee, is slated to appear in a number of panels at Celebration Europe.

Chee, who was dubbed by Wired magazine as having the "Best Job Ever," will share insights and detail about Star Wars as few can!
