I personally am MEGA THRILLED for the Star Wars guests this year. The ever charming Lando himself, Billy Dee Williams, is sure to delight fans, as well as Ray Park (Darth Maul), Author Michael Stackpole, Bryan Young from the Full of Sith Podcast, and one I’m particular excited for — BB-8 & porg puppeteer Brian Herring!!

PHXFF boasts 31 media guests, 72 comic guests, 18 authors, and 6 cosplayers that entail 22 fandoms. Phoenix Fan Fusion really does have something for everyone! On their website they’ve made it easy to sort the programming by fandoms so you’re able to get the most out of the con.
