One of the main reasons to attend any comic book convention with celebrity guests is the fans' ability to directly ask their favorite stars some of their burning questions. With Star Wars: Episode VII on the horizon, many of those burning questions revolve around the future of their favorite characters from the original trilogy.
This past weekend, the 2013 Emerald City Comic-Con was held in Seattle, Washington, and I attended. Originally, Carrie Fisher was on the guest list until a last minute illness made her cancel her appearance. This made the major draw for Star Wars fans another original trilogy star, Billy Dee Williams. At his panel on March 2, WIlliams was asked by fans whether or not he would be included in the upcoming sequel film.
