Not sure if I should call it trooping report... because for me it's not an ordinary in costume trooping.
The Rise of Skywalker had its China Premiere on Dec 18, the members of 501st Legion Chinese Garrison and Rebel Legion China Base have attend the event. We have trooped in the Walt Disney Grand Theatre in Shanghai Disneytown. After the movie, we entered the Shanghai Disney Land and took some amazing photo in costume in front of the castle.
I wasn't in my TD costume, because Disney China had an special arrangement. Approved by Lucas Film, my sandtrooper armor will be displayed in Star Wars Launch Bay in Disney Land for a week, along with the offical movie props.
Also I was honored to be invited as a guest speaker at the premiere with Mr.Liang Yang, our new Honorary Member, who played FN-2199 in TFA and Praetorian Guards in TLJ. I talked about the stories of 501st and MEPD's armor making. And Mr Yang shared a lot of behind scenes details of the Star Wars moives he has participated.
I was so proud and I wanna share my excitement with my MEPD brothers and sisters. Hope you all enjoy the new movie and may the force be with you!
