ACCEPTANCE SPEECH – STAR WARS FAN AWARDS 2018

Lucasfilm requested winners for the Star Wars Fan Awards to each submit a short acceptance video for possible inclusion in the Star Wars Show – Star Wars Fan Awards Special episode. The folks at the Star Wars Show ended up using several clips from our video, but we would like to share the entire two-minute video because there are so many people that we would like to thank for helping us make Star Wars: The Toys Awaken.
