Social Scanner – June 12, 2015

This week on social media, fans discussed San Diego Comic-Con, shared their thoughts on Christopher Lee's passing, and more.

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 everyday. Our fans are creative, passionate, funny, and very active across the Internet. Every Friday I like to share my favorite social media posts from the week in the Social Scanner, so show me what you’ve got!

If there was ever a time to use the Force, this would be it.

Logan just combined three of my favorite things: Star Wars, stop motion, and pasta. For that, I thank him.

Following the announcement that Star Wars will indeed be at San Diego Comic-Con, fans immediately started their preparations.

This kid is a boss. He wins Star Wars Weekends

We lost a true legend this week. Sir Christopher Lee not only inspired Star Wars fans, but fans of film all over the galaxy.

Reading comments and tributes from fans around the world was a touching reminder of the impact that talents like Lee have on people. He’ll be greatly missed.
