This year’s Star Wars Celebration has been a whirlwind of emotion for fans of the galaxy far, far away. There were plenty of tears shed for the iconic Carrie Fisher, a trailer released for arguably the highest anticipated film of the year in The Last Jedi and the beginning of the end for the beloved Rebels series. The Celebration transcended generations and legions of fans, young and old, attended the event to witness the incredible Star Wars cosplay and be the first to revel in the announcements made.
Thankfully for those who were unable to attend, many posted their glorious Celebration experience on social media because that is the interconnected world we’re living in today. Here are a collection of various twitter and instagram posts from the lucky attendees.
1. Darth Kanye Making An Appearance
2. Deadpool Took A Wrong Turn On His Way To A Chimichanga Convention (I Believe)
It simply wouldn’t be a proper picture taken with Deadpool if he didn’t flip off the camera. This fan went the whole nine yards with his take on Deadpool’s costume, complete with a bad ass utility belt and katana blade!
3. Official Star Wars Twitter Posts Some Amazing Ahsoka Cosplay
The official Star Wars twitter account was so impressed by this fan’s cosplay of Ahsoka, they tweeted the photo out to their over 3 million followers. When you manage to spend the whole day in orange and white body paint, you deserve all the glory.
4. Young Rey Mastering The Pinball Machine
This little fan’s adorable take on Rey includes the trademark hair and stern look as she attempts to conquer a Star Wars pinball machine celebrating 40 years since the release of A New Hope.
5. It Is Useless To Resist Your Love For An Animated Character
This user attempts to mask her love for this beloved fictionalized animated character, however we all know Kallus (voiced by David Oyelowo) is looking good. In the immortal words of the Borg, resistance is futile – and yes, I’m aware of how blasphemous it is to make a Star Trek reference in a Star Wars article.
6. A Sea Of Matt The Radar Technicians
The man who portrays Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) also starred in a ridiculously popular SNL spoof called Matt The Radar Technician. In the above photo, a Kylo Ren cosplayer is surrounded by six Matt The Radar Technicians all pulling off that trademark thumbs up.
7. Hangin’ With The Scum Of The Galaxy
Nothing screams “fun” like being in the same vicinity of Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett and the incredibly talented Cantina band that excel in playing that one song!
8. Josh Gad’s Sweet Message For Daisy Ridley
After many instances of Josh Gad (Beauty and The Beast) attempting to pry The Last Jedi spoilers out of Daisy Ridley – including enlisting the help of dame Judi Dench – Gad took to Instagram to post a few kind words for the beloved actress.
9. Little Jyn Erso, Princess Leia And Rey Taking Over The World And Our Hearts
How brilliant is this Charlie’s Angels-inspired pose by three of these fantastic heroines? They are dressed to cosplay perfection and hopefully they continue to express their badassness at future Celebrations.
10. The Official Star Wars Instagram Concludes Celebration With A Stellar Pun
And with that comes the end of Star Wars Celebration 2017. Unfortunately we’re not going to have a Celebration next year, however 2019 sees the concluding chapter of this new trilogy in Episode IX.
The next installment of the Star Wars franchise is The Last Jedi which releases in theaters on December 15th, 2017.
