San Diego Comic-Con 2009 was held from July 22-26, 2009 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. The convention featured a huge helping of Star Wars news, panels, celebrities, costumes, floor displays and merchandise. In a year where the economy was suffering in the U.S., Comic-Con provided a much needed respite from the worries of the day.

Some notable news and moments from the convention:

  • For the first time in history, a panel from the convention was broadcast on television. G4 TV covered the Lucasfilm/Star Wars panel and broadcast it to millions watching at home. The panel was hosted by Steve Sansweeet, Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira
  • Fans received cofirmation that Star Wars Celebration V would be held in the summer of 2010
  • Anthony Daniels announced the news of the Star Wars In Concert Tour in America and gave fans a sneak peek of what was in store at the show 
  • LucasArts previewed their 'Clone Wars: Republic Heroes' game
  • The cast of the Clone Wars television series performed a live scene from the Star Wars panel which bridged the gap between season one and season two of the show. After the table read, fan were treated to the trailer for season two
  • Bioware and LucasArts held an amazing panel which previewed the MMO 'Star Wars: The Old Republic'.
As usual, the Lucasfilm Pavilion was an anchor on the showroom floor. With large screens showing trailers and clips from the films, life-size Clone Wars statues and displays/booths from eFx, The Art of Ralph McQuarrie, Uncle Milton, Mimobot, LucasArts, The Empire Muggs Back and Official Pix to name a few... the Pavilion was always packed with eager fans.

There was loads of new and exciting Star Wars merchandise, including many new and exclusive items. Follow this link for a list of the Comic-Con 2009 Star Wars Exclusives.

Despite hard economic times in 2009, Star Wars licensees still put their best foot forward with magnificent displays on the showroom floor.
