Social Scanner – January 16, 2015

Check out this week's Star Wars social media highlights!

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!

Reading @Marvel @StarWars #1 using @comixology on my iPad. It's all about the experience.

Definitely one of the biggest topics of the week was the release of John Cassaday and Jason Aaron’s Star Wars #1. From reviews (yes, we read them) to release party photos, the tail end of the week was dominated by comic talk.

Some scenes from today’s big Star Wars release party at the comic shop. Great day(very busy, non-stop traffic all day. Was barely off register, lol), got a very cool Obi Wan sketch, & the book is awesome. -

Hi, Dak!

The last two posts confirm: growing up is overrated.

The runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend starts today! Check back in the next Social Scanner for more highlights.

This week, we’ll wrap things up with some creative costuming. I must say. I see a lot of interesting costumes on my feeds, but definitely a first, this was.
