I just wanted to drop a line at this very sad time with the news of Peter Mayhew’s passing. We have new plans now for this years Empire Con after talking to Peter’s family. As they posted in the family’s official statement on his passing, they want to share with you all a celebration of Peter Mayhew’s life at Empire Con. His family and close friends will be joining us at the event as well as some of the talented cast that Peter worked with over the years. Some of his personal collection will be on display with stories he loved to share. We have lots we have talked about and more information will come soon, i just wanted to keep everyone up to date as things move forward, our thoughts are with Peter's family at this time.
