Keeping to the tradition of being the final fan stage panel of the convention, The Force Among Us
creators Cristian and Cortney Macht captivated the audience with details on their soon-to-be-released documentary.
I had the honor of being asked to introduce the panel, which showed clips from the film that stars fans from all over the world, and although there are many differences among fans, they found there is a unifying connection between everyone who loves Star Wars
, no matter how each person expresses it, we are all bonded together by our love of the films. When you think about it...that's really what the Force is, isn't it?
Everything went smoothly until the battery on the microphone when dead! Cristian, being the master of improvisation, handled it quite well and told the audience he would do what drives his wife crazy, talk real loud. Still, I was able to lend a hand by getting one of the convention staff to dig up a replacement battery so Cristian didn't have to yell over the crowd the whole time. What a trooper!
At the end of the panel, the Machts took time to talk to the fans individually and sign autographs. The film was very well perceived by the European audience and they are looking forward to going back to Europe someday soon.
