“Star Wars” Fans Treated to Surprise Concert at Comic-Con

“Star Wars” fans at San Diego Comic-Con were treated to a major surprise on July 10, 2015, after the panel: a special concert offsite. After the panel ended, the “Star Wars” crew asked everyone in Hall H – all 6,500 attendees – to follow costumed Stormtroopers out to the Embarcadero Marina next to the Convention Center. There was a stage set up and J.J. Abrams and the cast went up there holding lightsabers. Then, the San Diego Symphony played legendary songs from the beloved “Star Wars” series. The Comic-Con magic culminated with fireworks. Not bad, “Star Wars,” not bad at all.
