Exclusive: A love letter from Lynda Carter to fandom for Wonder Woman Day!

Watch The Force Awakens Panel From The Star Wars Celebration Live Right Here At 1pm EDT

DUN DUN DUN DUUUUUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUN DUN DUN DUN DUUUUUUUN DUN

The Star Wars Celebration is in full force in Anaheim today – but don’t worry if you can’t make it out there, because they’re live streaming the Force Awakens kick-off panel with JJ Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy at 1pmE/10amP. And it’s not like SDCC – any exclusive footage shown during the panel will also be simulcast!

The livestream will continue for over thirty hours this weekend, including panels with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Ian McDiarmid, EA’s Battlefront game, the Star Wars fan film awards and more. You can even check out the Force Awakens page in the program for the weekend, with some cool photos.

People have been lining up in droves since doors opened yesterday at 6pm, but JJ did right by his fans. According to ScreenCrush, he had pizza delivered for every single person in line:

Around 9:30pm, when the line had swelled to over 1,500, pizzas began arriving 25 at a time, with an announcement from the staff. You can say what you want about J.J. Abrams (and many of you have), but you can’t say he doesn’t respect and appreciate the fans of both his and Star Wars, many of whom traveled across the globe to be here.
