June 2013 Preview

Before summer convention season kicks off in earnest next month, June is a great time to catch up on stories you might have missed or take a short vacation before the next round of fandom fun and madness.

Star Wars Weekends – Look for more posts about this year’s event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

Star Wars Insider – This month’s issue of Star Wars Insider magazine, issue #142, features my cover story article about Padmé Amidala’s role in the Prequel Trilogy. I’ll have more thoughts to share here at the blog, too.
