During the closing ceremony of Star Wars Celebration Chicago, something very special took place. The hosts of the Emmy nominated Star Wars Show, Andi Gutierrez and Anthony Carboni were made honorary members of the 501st Legion.
‘We have one last surprise here…and this one is for Andi and Anthony so please welcome members of the 501st Legion.’ A group of costumed 501st members comes out onto the stage, including Vader, The Emperor, and a pair of Stormtroopers.
‘We’re here today in the name of the 501st Legion to honour the contributions of Andi Gutierrez and Anthony Carboni’
‘Their contributions to the legacy of Star Wars began in 2015 as hosts of the Anaheim Star Wars Celebration, and then becoming hosts of The Star Wars Show the following May.
They bring us behind the scenes of a galaxy far far away every week, and pull overtime duty working here at Star Wars Celebration so fans that can’t join us can watch us at home on their screens. On Behalf of the 501st Legion and all Star Wars fans, we are pleased to make you both honorary members. Congratulations’
Well deserved guys, congratulations Andi and Anthony.
