Watch the Chicago PD Get into the Star Wars Celebration Spirit [VIDEO]

Today is the day, Star Wars fans- Star Wars Celebration is set to kick off at 1pm (CMT) in Chicago. Fans from all over the galaxy are here (just last night, we met fans from Italy, Japan, and Australia), and even the local public safety officials got into the spirit.

The Chicago Police Department released a pretty great video this morning, and we love it:

The big Star Wars: Episode IX panel happens at 11am (CMT) on Friday April 12th, and it’ll be live-streamed via Star Wars.com for everyone who couldn’t make it to Chicago. We’ll have multiple reporters on the ground at McCormick Place, and we’ll do our best to get you all the news as it comes.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.



Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 



Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 



Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
