G4 AND LUCASFILM PRESENT THE FIRST-EVER TELEVISED PANEL IN SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON HISTORY

Star Wars� Comic-Con Spectacular Will Feature Exclusive Footage and Exciting Announcements from the LIVE Lucasfilm Presentation

Hosted by G4's Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira, the Two-Hour Special Will Premiere on G4 Saturday, July 25 at 2pm ET/PT

LOS ANGELES � June 24, 2009 � Lucasfilm Ltd. and G4 are joining forces for a milestone in San Diego Comic-Con International's 40-year history � the first-ever, exclusive television broadcast of a presentation from the massive pop culture convention. The Star Wars Spectacular! will air Saturday July 25th at 2:00pm ET/PT only on G4, and will feature never-before-seen footage, breaking news, surprise announcements, guest stars and more. In addition, G4 will present three hours of live coverage from the Comic-Con floor, beginning at 4:00pm ET/PT.

Traditionally, details surrounding Lucasfilm's primary panel presentation are closely guarded secrets, with only 6,500 lucky on-site fans allowed access to the wealth of coveted information from a galaxy far, far away. But this year, G4 � the network that delivers all of the latest and greatest news on comic books, games, technology and pop culture � is offering TV viewers the one-of-a-kind opportunity to share the excitement with an exclusive broadcast of the panel. G4's Attack of the Show hosts Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn will join Lucasfilm's Steve Sansweet and a galaxy of guests from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and beyond � including supervising director Dave Filoni, and voice talent from the show � to provide an insider look at the Star Wars universe, with never-before-seen footage and a LIVE table read of an exclusive new Clone Wars script.

In addition, fans are invited to participate in the panel itself by submitting Clone Wars questions through a special G4 micro-site. Questions will be answered during the live presentation by Dave Filoni and other Clone Wars creatives!

2009's Comic-Con International also marks another Lucasfilm milestone � the launch of the all-new Star Wars Stories Project. Fans of the Saga will have the unique opportunity to become a part of the Star Wars universe by contributing to Lucasfilm's own historical archive. Soliciting movie memories and nostalgia, the Star Wars Stories Project invites fans to share their own tales of fandom through video testimonials. In addition to online submissions, fans will have the opportunity to record their stories at Lucasfilm's pavilion on the Comic-Con floor.

Fans are invited to upload their fan stories at http://g4tv.com/comiccon
