May 18, 2019. For this year’s Comic Con Revolution in Ontario, CA, Drew Seldin invited me to participate in a panel, “Creating the Star Wars Universe” in Ballroom C at 2:00 pm to Ontario’s Convention Center. The other panelists included Sam Witwer, musician and actor in live action (Once Upon a Time, Supergirl) and in voiceover (Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Star Wars artist William O’Neill. Joelle Monique moderated the panel.
Several people videotaped us and uploaded their footage to YouTube.
This is Rama’s Screen posting on May 18:
The footage cuts off before the Q&A, which Steven Alvarez includes in his coverage, uploaded May 23:
When Joelle asks us about our favorite Star Wars film, Sam Witwer provides a brilliant answer, agreeing with me and stating why the original Star Wars was the best. William O’Neill points out that while writers favor The Empire Strikes Back, you need the original Star Wars as foundational to the saga, and necessary for what happens in Empire.

My takeaway from this: Display only one book!
