As a member of the (very small) social media team here at Lucasfilm, I have the honor of reading, responding to, laughing at, loving, and sharing all of your Star Wars conversations every day. Our fans are creative, passionate, funny, and very active across the Internet; every Friday, I’ll share my favorite social media posts from the week in the Social Scanner, so show me what you’ve got!
Welcome to the Star Wars Social Scanner: Star Wars Celebration Special Edition! Thank the Force for your social media sharing last week, because it was impossible to catch all of the amazing panels, announcements, and fan excitement inside the halls. Honestly, I’m still catching up!
I have been home from #SWCA for two days, and, uh, my suitcases and costumes are still not yet unpacked. I'm not the only one, right?

One thing I’m definitely sad to have missed was John Boyega roaming the floor in a clone trooper helmet. I’d like to say that the disguise wouldn’t have fooled me.
There was some “most impressive” costuming on the floor.

Plus, an endless elevator full of Mandos! A Mando-lator!
Trailers were watched.
The new @starwars trailer …wow! It made the 7 year old me geek out. I’ve watched it 5 times. I’m as excited as I was in 1977! Can’t wait.

I, for one, welcome our fuzzy new overlords.

In all, Star Wars Celebration Anaheim was one for the books. I feel so honored to have been there with all of the excitement and fun…and fans! Let’s do it again sometime. Say, next year? London?
