Weekly Roundup: July 5, 2013

Wondering what’s been happening at Here’s a quick roundup of what you might have missed this week!


Two popular Celebration events are now confirmed to make a triumphant return: the Bounty Hunt and Cantina Crawl are on for Celebration Europe!

In the Bounty Hunt, attendees download the Celebration Europe mobile app and then use it to track down clues hidden throughout the show. Those who track down all the clues may win a special bounty…

The Cantina Crawl will take place the night of July 27, after the busiest day of Star Wars Celebration. Fans, exhibitors, and guests are welcome to eat, drink, and have fun up and down Rüttenscheider Straße — a street lined with restaurants, cafes, and pubs — just two blocks from Messe Essen. Select restaurants will act as Celebration’s official Cantinas!


The epic charity relay is almost here! Be sure to visit the official Course of the Force site for scheduling, media, and to register.

And in the latest installment of Nerdist’s lost-lightsaber series, we see how a dance off in a galaxy far, far away can be just as deadly as a lightsaber duel.


Arnd Riedel and Oliver Steeples of the R2 Builders give fans an inside look at the various astromech droids they can look forward to seeing and interacting with at Celebration Europe.

WeLoveFine debuts new Star Wars T-shirts!
