If you are going to the San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, be aware that it is Star Wars Day.  And if you are going to the San Diego Comic-Con and you want to participate in only Star Wars events, take the jump for some of the highlights.

Lucasfilm will once again dominate Comic-Con International with the biggest pavilion on the Exhibit Hall Floor, featuring Lucasfilm’s signature video walls, collectibles, LucasArts video games, a wealth of Star Wars licensed product and more. Highlights include:

  • Lucasfilm and G4 join forces for a milestone in Comic-Con’s 40-year history – the first-ever, exclusive televised broadcast of a presentation from the massive pop culture convention. The Star Wars Spectacular will be hosted by Lucasfilm’s Steve Sansweet and G4’s Olivia Munn and Kevin Periera.
  • Soliciting movie memories and nostalgia, the Star Wars Stories Project invites fans to share their own tales of fandom through video testimonials recorded at Lucasfilm’s pavilion. The pilot presentation during the Star Wars Spectacular will feature memories and reminiscences from Saga luminaries and Star Wars celebrity fans.
  • Fierce battles, expanded storylines, and elaborate animation raise the stakes higher than ever in the second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, scheduled to premiere this fall. Fans will have the chance to go behind-the-scenes and learn about the making of the show, and get an exclusive sneak peek at what’s to come in the ongoing battle for galactic freedom.
  • The Star Wars Spectacular will also feature a first look at the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars The Complete Season One DVD and Blu-ray. Containing all 22 episodes from the groundbreaking first season, fans will get a glimpse at the many special features included in the exciting box set.
  • For the first time ever fans can get their hands on Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroesâ„¢ for the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii at the Star Wars pavilion! Save the Republic and play as both Jedi and clone troopers in a storyline that bridges the gap between seasons one and two of the television series.

Don’t be surprised if you see Matt Lanter (voice of Anakin Skywalker), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Catherine Taber (Padme Amidala), Dee Bradley Baker (Captain Rex) and Tom Kane (Yoda) wondering around the area. Plus, there are going to be plenty of photo opportunities including plenty of Slave Leias, stormtroopers, clone troopers, and I bet a Darth Vader or two wondering around.
