Panasonic CES 2011 Live Blog – Possible Star Wars Announcement

We’re attempting to bring you a lot of the news from CES 2011 and just some of our recent posts include the keynote speech times, and news on products such as a Vizio phone, a Toshiba 10-inch Android tablet and a new iPad 2 case with mockup iPad. Now though, we have some news for you about a Panasonic event taking place today (Wednesday).

It takes place at the Venetian hotel and kicks off at 3:00 pm PT and you can see a live blog from the event over on Cnet by Tom Krazit along with a trio of Cnet’s TV experts. There’s a lot of speculation about a Star Wars announcement being made at the Panasonic event as we have learned that characters from Star Wars will be appearing according to Stuart Miles over on Pocket-Lint.

Apparently Starwars.com has reported, “The Empire is headed to Vegas, baby. Darth Vader, accompanied by a legion of his finest Imperial troops, will address emissaries from ‘a galaxy far, far away’ for a most impressive announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show.” It also teases us further by saying, “Be Prepared…The Force is strong with this one.” Of course that’s led to a frenzy about what might be coming with suggestions ranging from Star Wars 3D re-makes to some kind of TV featuring the ‘Force’.

You can be sure that we’ll be waiting to hear the news but meanwhile we’d be interested to know your predictions for what may be announced at the Panasonic event so please do send us your comments.
