One of the best things about conventions is the work that fans put into their costumes. One group of die hard Star Wars fans took things one step further and used their costumes to recreate the ending of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. From pulling the plans off of the “computer” all the way to getting them in the hands of Princess Leia, the entire sequence is recreated in a convention center hallway. Check it out.
The highlight of the clip, which was created at Star Wars Celebration Orlando this weekend, has to be the opening when they pull the “plans” out of an ATM machine. The ending is also well done as they have to make the door appear to be stuck, even though such a thing would be a serious fire code violation. We never get a good look at their Princess Leia, but because she loses her hood while walking away we can see that she’s ever got her hair right for the performance.
The clip was published by the UK’s Star Wars Twitter feed and while it’s not confirmed, it would seem that this crew of Rebel soldiers came to Star Wars Celebration together, likely with plans to perform this. Their costumes are all a little too identical to have been put together at the show itself. This is the kind of dedication that we love to see in fans, a large group who gets the idea to do something like this in the hallway as a sort of performance art piece, in the middle of the massive crowd. Half the crowd doesn’t even appear to really notice what’s going on because at conventions this sort of thing is fairly normal.
While Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the newest entry in the franchise, there’s a pretty good chance that we could see this scene reenacted at conventions for a long time to come. Considering the fact that it shows Darth Vader looking more badass than we’ve ever seen him before, it’s likely that this will be the part of Rogue One that people really remember after it’s become a part of Star Wars history.
In addition to the fun had by fans, Star Wars Celebration Orlando has also been a major event for news of all things Star Wars. Whether you’re interested in the next film, the animated TV series, the next video game, or all of the above, there has been plenty of information about what’s next in the galaxy far, far away. CinemaBlend has got all the Star Wars details you could possibly need.
Unfortunately, we now have to keep this excitement going for several more months, as most events, like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, won’t actually be here until the end of the year. Are you sufficiently hyped to have it last until December?
