When the Salt Lake City Comic Con FanXperience made its inaugural debut last year, it broke national records for a first-time convention, according to Forbes Magazine. On Jan. 29, more than 100 fans showed up in costume to participate in this year’s marketing material.
Amongst the cosplayers was non-other than Daniel Logan, who in his usual fashion, took time to meet fans and pose with them for photos and video. Logan recently moved from California to Salt Lake City, according to Deseret News, and will be a featured guest at the convention which is April 17-19.
Jeremy Bulloch is also slated to be a guest at the convention, so if you’re in the area, this is an event you’ll be sure not to miss!
A few months ago we reported that Daniel Logan and Matt Wood were featured at a Star Wars panel at DragonCon. The podcast, Full of Sith, just released a special episode with co-host Bryan Young interviewing the actors for a question and answer session during the convention.
The episode is about an hour long and is a great listen to not only fans of Logan and Wood, but to fans of The Clone Wars in general. Most interesting, Logan answers some questions I’ve not heard repeated from the number of other interviews he’s given over the last few months.
They discuss how the landed their roles in The Clone Wars, comment about the future of Star Wars and share fun stories from the production of the show.
You can download the podcast episode for free on iTunes.
If you haven’t listened to this week’s RebelForce Radio, then download it now to check out an exclusive interview with Daniel Logan and Tom Kane at last weekend’s Marigold Festival in Illinois.
Logan and Kane take a stroll down memory lane, recounting stories from the set of Attack of the Clones and production for The Clone Wars.
Normally, I’d give a rundown of everything talked about, but this podcast is so informative and entertaining – you really need to listen to it for yourself.
However, if that’s not enough to intrigue you – here are some items addressed:
Some of the most comprehensive coverage from DragonCon came from none other than The Star Wars Report Podcast Network. A number of its hosts were in attendance, including Aaron Goins, who reported the happenings from the Daniel Logan and Matt Wood panel.
The Official StarWars.com Blog posted an article by Goins earlier this week, where he relayed to us what Logan and Woods had to say during their panel, which was moderated by Bryan Young. You can read the entire post by clicking here, but these were the highlights:

Jeremy Bulloch strapped into his Mandalorian armor on multiple occasions last week, as he joined JediNews.com staff for Caravan of the Force – a tour leading up to Celebration Europe II benfiting Make-A-Wish Foundation. Bulloch even appeared on stage of Celebration’s Boba Fett reunion panel, alongside Daniel Logan, John Morton and Dickey Beer.
When the panel was announced last year, I was hoping for a Boba Fett-oriented reveal. There were no news items shared, although there was a surprise appearance by Temuera Morrison, who participated in a re-creation of an Attack of the Clones scene with Logan.
The performers shared nostalgic memories of their experiences portraying Boba Fett, ranging from Bulloch being a proponent of Boba Fett surviving the Sarlacc, to Logan’s audition for the prequel films and Morton’s memory of receiving direction when standing in during Empire.
Even though there were no project announcements, I believe Lucasfilm officials held this panel to gauge the attendance and reactions from fans.
RebelForce Radio broadcasted live from C2E2 over the weekend, where they caught up with actor Daniel Logan. His interview can be found 36 minutes into the episode.
