Well, we may not be getting a Star Wars Celebration this year, but a bunch of podcasters have rallied together to create a 60-panel event called ForceFest this weekend.
"Star Wars Celebration has always been a huge part of Star Wars fandom," said Sarah Woloski, one of the event’s organizers. "Fans gather from all over the world to celebrate the Star Wars saga and meet up with new and old friends. We knew we could use technology to mimic that feel virtually."
"The Star Wars fandom has always been active online creating their own content out of love for the saga," said David Jesse of Tatooine Sons, one of the organizing shows. "FORCEFEST will create a larger platform for shows of all themes and sizes to share their unique brand of streaming in a shared environment."
On today's show, we'll talk about what's in store for the event, how it has a great tie-in to the in-person Star Wars Celebration events, and the good cause for which they're raising money. Punch it!
