Fangirl Chat: Episode 1: Kathleen Kennedy at SWCE2

With all the news this weekend coming from Star Wars Celebration Europe II, Teresa Delgado of Fangirl Next Door and I found we had a lot we wanted to chat about. We went to some of the most prominent sources of fandom news, then discussed what we saw. Both Teresa and I decided it would be best to break each topic into segments, so fans who are interested can easily find the area of their interest.

First up, we chatted about Kathleen Kennedy’s panel from Saturday morning. Our sources included the live blog from and the Twitter roundup from ClubJade. Kennedy also sat down with host Warwick Davis after the panel to record a short video.

You can follow Teresa on Twitter at @icecoldpenguin and Tricia at @fangirlcantina. On Episode 2, we will discuss John Williams’ return to Star Wars!
