Star Wars Episode VII panel

Postby Anna_erishkigal » Thu Jul 30, 2015 9:49 am

Since the movie hasn't come out yet, but WILL be out by A'16, our members will EXPECT us to have a variety of Star Wars themed panels and events. I'm hoping (fingers crossed) it will be good like IV-VI and not bleh like I-III, but unfortunately we won't know until mid-December when our programming is already set.

What kind of Star Wars panels can we suggest that sound like we're up on the latest events? That are interesting to run-of-the-mill FANS of these films and not just the usual 5-talking-heads?

One possible idea:

Weapons of Star Wars

Have our weapons-masters, gunsmiths and swordsmen run a panel where they describe how realistic some of the light sabre dueling is, will that wierd sith-cross-saber thingy work without cutting off your own fingers, and also the laser weapons. And WHY can't the stormtroopers ever hit a target?

Would be great if they could put together some film-clips from past Star Wars films + some real-life swordplay / shooting footage to compare. Athena School of Arms did a video show last year in events about Game of Thrones that I have in mind as I'm speaking of 'film clips.' A hybrid of this would fit great into a panel-room with some discussion between real-life experts.

I'm envisioning this as more of an intellectual discussion. Though Events will likely entice our weapons experts to do some hands-on light saber dueling or bokun classes as well.
