1:30pm - 4:00pm PDT

On May 25, 1977, Star Wars exploded across the big screen and changed our lives forever. The impact of Star Wars is not just limited to pop culture or even world politics. As science and technology advance, the world is little by little growing more and more like that galaxy far, far away. Join us May 27 as we celebrate forty years of the legacy, that is Star Wars.

A 12-year-old Hal Hickel was there in 1977, and he became determined to be a part of Star Wars. Twenty years later, Hickel would be the lead animator on Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. This past year, Hickel was nominated for the Academy Award for his role as Supervising Animator for Rogue One.

Join us as Hal Hickel goes from fanboy to Supervisor, sharing his love of animation and the challenges his team faced on creating Rogue One’s K-2SO, Grand Moff Tarkin, the At-Acts walkers, and loads of space battle stuff.
