Homing Beacon #182

The latest Homing Beacon has arrived and today we get to talk about the featured celebrities of Celebration IV. Star Wars Celebration IV will feature screen celebrities whose careers span the entire 30 years of the Star Wars saga. The event, scheduled for May 24 -- 28, 2007 in the Los Angeles Convention Center, will offer fans a good long weekend for fun, autographs, and meeting the performers who portrayed their favorite characters of the 6-movie series.

Official Pix, provider of authentic, licensed Star Wars photos and autographs, plans to host a record number of guests in the Celebration Autograph Hall. In addition stars Carrie Fisher, and Anthony Daniels from the original trilogy, expect to meet an entire list of stars who will also be celebrating 30 years of Star Wars.

The original princess with an attitude, Carrie Fisher, will appear during the show weekend. Fisher will be greeting fans and signing autographs in the Celebration Autograph Hall, and is scheduled to appear on stage for an interview and a question and answer session. Best known by Star Wars fans for her role in the original trilogy, Fisher is also a successful stage, screen, and television performer, as well as a noted author and script doctor.

Anthony Daniels, the actor who has performed as the golden droid C-3PO in all six movies of the Star Wars saga, is slated to meet fans and sign autographs in the Celebration Autograph Hall all five days of the show, May 24 -- 28, and is scheduled to appear on stage as well. Daniels has been part of the Star Wars saga since the beginning, and has breathed endearing humanity and humor into his well loved, not-so-mechanical droid character.
