I'm surprised at how quickly it's selling...especially considering that other major conventions are stagnating or even taking longer than before to sell out.
Tickets for Celebration have lasted for months in the past, but since Saturday sold out it shows the demand is real regardless on whether or not they reduced the amount of full weekend passes.
People who don't get tickets will always find a reason to complain--yes, it sold out more quickly, but the last Celebration was in 2017 and everyone knows it's happening in 2019. They've had over a year since Celebration Orlando to save up.
This is also the biggest convention center in the country, although I don't know how much space they plan to use.

i'm shocked by the lack of tickets on ebay at this point! there were a few badge trading/selling groups but they seem to have shut down; especially once RP people got into the groups

Media Registration for Star Wars Celebration is now open!

Star Wars Celebration media applications will be accepted until 11:59 PM CST on February 22, 2019 unless we reach maximum capacity at an earlier date. We strongly recommend you apply early as once all media badges are allocated, no more will be released. There will be no onsite media registration at Star Wars Celebration.

Due to demand, Lucasfilm is limiting the number of media badges they are allocating for 2019. Because you have been granted a media badge in the past, does not guarantee your approval for one for 2019. Please allow time to receive your confirmation while they evaluate all applications.

Who Qualifies

Star Wars Celebration media registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions. Editorial media includes writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, videographers, etc. who are attending specifically to write about Star Wars Celebration and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.


Media Badge Access

Star Wars Celebration Media badges provide complimentary access to Star Wars Celebration and corresponding venues (that don't include a separate ticket) for all days of the event. Media badges are extended as a courtesy of Star Wars Celebration. Star Wars Celebration is a fans first event which means your media badge allows access to panels as long as space is available.


Your press badge DOES NOT allow:

    Early or special access into Star Wars Celebration
    Guaranteed seating at panels and events
    The ability to cut lines
    Free access into any events requiring an additional ticket
    Entry into pre-show lotteries for exhibitor exclusives or private autographing (sorry, but these are reserved for
    Star Wars Celebration fans who purchased tickets)

Any additional access, under certain situations, must be arranged through the Lucasfilm Media team.


Media Guidelines

Submitting an application does not guarantee approval. All media applications will be reviewed by Lucasfilm and you will be notified if you have been approved or denied by February 28, 2019. If approved, additional information will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt. Every individual applying for a Star Wars Celebration press badge may only apply once.


Multiple Badges

Each media badge is issued individually. If you're applying with a team, each person on your team needs to apply and be approved separately. Lucasfilm reserves the right to approve or deny any application and limit the number of Media Badges provided to each organization. If you're approved and then email us saying you only received one badge and need more for your team, you will be directed to have the rest of your team submit an application and they may or may not be approved for badges. You may also be force choked for not reading these guidelines before applying as directed.

Media badges are non-transferable and non-resellable

Any individuals caught selling their media badge will be disqualified from attending future Star Wars Celebrations. This is non-negotiable.


Decisions are Final

Lucasfilm reserves the right to approve or deny any application. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. Include any and all information in your application that will allow the Lucasfilm Media team to make an informed decision, as you will not be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved.

Hello everyone – As you can see, the cat is out of the bag !!!
.
It is with GREAT EXCITEMENT that I reveal the theme today for our 8th Star Wars Celebration Diorama Builders workshop : THE BATTLE OF SCARIF as seen in one of my fave Star Wars films ROGUE ONE.
.
I want to thank Lucasfilm and Mary at ReedPop for allowing me to let you all know what we have planed for 2019. It was a tight race, as last year we were planing a huge POD RACE diorama to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Star Wars EPISODE I The Phantom Menace. Along the way, circumstances beyond our control that arose in the past months, made it clear to us we unfortunately would have to abandon this concept for this time and re-think what else would be a really exciting and fun build never attempted before. First thing that came to mind was that I wanted it to be our very FIRST DISNEY ERA construction and the one I love the most, a scene from ROGUE ONE.
.
My crew and I were debating between 2 choices then LIGHTNING STRUCK, in the form of something I cannot discuss YET 🙂 I know I know, It’s Christmas, why am I being such a grinch and spoiling your day 🙂 It was going so well, I was spilling the beans LOL – But this LIGHTBULB MOMENT that magically fell in our lap,  just happens to be the COOLEST THING to happen to Diorama Builders booth in a long time – It will be a REAL GAME CHANGER for the Diorama Workshop experience. You will ALL be SOOO HAPPY when I can spill the beans about this final “SECRET” from the show (I am hoping mid-end January 2019) and then the FULL FLOODGATES will begin.
.
Until then, I can still show you some fun stuff like, How I make the Artwork, Logo Variations for Pins and other SWAG to be given at the show. Keep coming to visit often between now and the convention. You will learn just how much work and preparation and planing it takes to organize and produce a convention booth for Star Wars Celebration.
.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS – Enjoy your day with friends and family !!!
.
Cheers, Ciao for now…
.
Frank

OH, if you want to see me talk about the reveal, I uploaded the FIRST CELEBRATION IX CREW VIDEO HERE

I like the juxtaposition and how it says "Star Wars... through the years."  Thanks for sharing it with us, [member=1732]SamTurtledove[/member].  (If only it were being held closer location-wise... XD)

I also opted not to go this year, however I did buy a one-day ticket so I can get the early pin/shirt sets.
