Celebration VI: Suvudu Jaina Solo Art Brought to Life

In June, Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare co-author Paul Urquhart shared with Suvudu readers his best star-pilots in the Galaxy Far Far Away.

Celebration VI: Secrets of the Chiss Jedi

Nuru Observes

For all the high-profile events a Celebration convention can bring – Mark Hamill or Carrie Fisher, Last Tour to Endor or The Clone Wars Red Carpet Premiere, even The Maker himself – there is always great fun and insight to be had at the smaller, less prominent panels. One of this year’s true highlights for me was a Thursday evening panel in the Star Wars University room: Ryder Windham’s “Secrets of the Chiss Jedi,” discussing the Secret Missions young-readers series and its starring character, Nuru Kungurama. . . . → Read More: Celebration VI: Secrets of the Chiss Jedi
