ENJOY THE BEST OF STAR WARS ALL WEEKEND COURTESY OF EMPIRE MAGAZINE
LIVE AT STAR WARS CELEBRATION Europe AT THE EXCEL 15 – 17 july
The Empire team brings you the best in talent and content from the Star Wars universe
Empire, the world’s biggest movie magazine, has today announced that it will be creating a pop up office onsite at the ExCeL at this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Europe event. The team will be working live on the next issue of the magazine of Empire and also hosting live Q&As and interviews with some of the stars from the films including Warwick Davis and Anthony Daniels. There will also be panel debates and quizzes featuring Star Wars Universe talent as well as Star Wars fans.
The event further bolsters Empire’s reputation as the only media brand that can bring fans closer to the films that they love and need to know about. It also cements the brand’s ability to bring the best in talent directly to its audience, across multiple platforms, meaning that even if you are not at the event, you still have plenty of chances to enjoy the experience and interact with the stars of the films.
Terri White, Editor In Chief of Empire magazine said: “Star Wars Celebration Europe is an annual global event which brings together the biggest names in the Star Wars universe and the fans that love the franchise. When we learned that this year’s event would be held in London, we knew we had to be part of it. So not only are we decamping the whole office down to the ExCeL to produce the magazine, but we will also be hosting a series of live events that truly brings the magic of Star Wars alive and that little bit closer to our readers.”
Some of the highlights across the weekend include:
- Ask the Staff: The Empire editorial team will discuss their favourite Star Wars moments and what Star Wars means to them. Questions supplied by an audience and streamed via Facebook Live
- Anthony Daniels time capsule/life in pictures interview. Streamed via Facebook Live
- Pint of Milk Live with Warwick Davis. Streamed via Facebook Live
- Live screening of a Star Wars movie (as voted for by readers/audience). Readers can get the chance to come and watch the film live with the Empire team.
