Over the next few days we'll be bringing you all the news and fun from Star Wars Celebration Orlando. Keep track of the goings on here and on our social media.
Day Two - Friday April 14
Joining the Dark Side this morning with my dark roast @Wawa coffee to get me started on day 2
I have to say that even with the west lot full, parking in north/south lots at @OCCC with the free shuttles has been super easy.
It's amazing how the line situation has changed since yesterday. Today it is light years better!
Current wristband availablity.
It's kind of unclear which line is which.
Finally found the right line to get to the show floor. Getting inside @OCCC was much better than yesterday but indoor lines are worse today
At least we're seeing some awesome cosplay while in line.
The aftermath of the overnight queue.
Well we didn't get into the Last Jedi panel but they'll be showing it on a screen on the show floor.
In case you live under a rock, here is the first teaser trailer for The Last Jedi.
After you watch it, watch it again with headphones, there are so many amazing audio cues in this trailer, which probably tells more of what's coming than the visuals do. Trust us.
Also, some stills from the trailer courtesy of LucasFilm.
And seriously, does it get any better than this poster?
Scott also created a couple of phone wallpapers of the poster, feel free to download them.
I did score a Lightspeed Lane pass for the store later.
Josh Gad is hosting the Last Jedi panel.
Rian Johnson talking about Carrie Fisher.

Missed out on the Jabba tiki set yet again.

Good thing I got a ticket this morning. Lightspeed!
Some of the shirts available at the Celebration store.
And more shirts.

Death Trooper costume hoodie. Pants optional.
Lots of room to walk around in the store.
Really cool set of pint glasses.
The Last Jedi shirts appear to among one of the most popular items.
Also inside the store is Salacious Crumb's Bakeshop. All but one variety is sold out for today.
Of course I had to get one of the cupcakes.
Storm Troopers need vacations too.
Really creative Disney/Star Wars cosplay.
These guys were taking photos forever! Great job!
Droid racing was a lot of fun to watch.
Lego storm trooper!
I never get tired of awesomely creative cosplay!
Droid parade going through the show floor.
I caught the Running of the Hoods at #SWCO . Hilarious!
So some back story on this courtesy of Wookieepedia, this is apparently in tribute to Willrow Hood, a background character in The Empire Strikes Back and is a Star Wars Celebration tradition.
Too funny when this Slave Leia met another one. (What is the dude Slave Leia looking at? Lol)
The variety of cosplay is amazing. You'll see a little bit of everything here.
A very popular photo op spot throughout the Celebration.
When it comes to sleeping during #StarWarsCelebration , sometimes you just need a quick nap on the sidewalk.
And so ends our day 2 coverage of #StarWarsCelebration . We'll be taking a break tomorrow but should be back for the final day.
