March 29th, 2013 by Marc Comments

If you are to be in attendance at Celebration Europe this year then you are in for a big treat. released a statement today saying that Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher, will be in attendance at the Star Wars festival this year. Celebration takes place in Essen, Germany this year and will run from July 26-28. Fisher will be there to greet fans and sign autographs in the Celebration Autograph Hall in addition to her on stage interview and question and answer session alongside Celebration host Warick Davis.

When asked about her appearance Fisher joked, “I’m always excited to do anything that has to do with Star Wars. It’s an opportunity to travel with my metal bikini and not take the opportunity to wear my metal bikini. Especially for Germans, the last group of people I’d want to offend, metal-bikini-wise.” Um, yeah, thank you for that Carrie.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
