Sure, sure, Star Wars just had Celebration, and there was plenty to celebrate there. But even then the galaxy far, far away has rocked Comic-Con before with big reveals or lavish booths, except this time around the galaxy far, far away felt… well, far far away. A highlight Star Wars‘ presence was the ever reliable publishing panel, at least giving us a little taste of books and comics to come—but it was mostly books and comics we already knew about. and all Star Wars had to show on the show floor were a couple of costumes and a droid for Andora show out in just over a month… which then played host to the completely subdued confirmation of six-month-old news that The Acolyte would be lead by Amandla Stenberg. A strange, scattershot con for one of the biggest franchises in the world.
