Star Wars: Uprising at Pax Prime – Meet and Greet with Billy Dee Williams


Pax Prime — the annual gaming convention held in Seattle, Washington — begins next week, and Kabam plans on making a big splash with their new mobile video game, Star Wars: Uprising. And, as part of their everyday booth operations at the convention, Kabam will host actor Billy Dee Williams in a meet and greet opportunity for fans in attendance.

From the official Kabam Press Release:

Kabam will be located at Booth 111 in the Washington State Convention Center. Throughout each day, Kabam’s booth will offer exclusive Star Wars: Uprising swag for fans. Giveaways include:

  • A PAX “Pinny Arcade” Pin for those who pre-register and demo Star Wars: Uprising
  • Star Wars: Uprising character art lanyards for pre-registrants
  • Limited Edition Star Wars: Uprising T-Shirts for fans who:
  • Stream Star Wars: Uprising and get more than 3000 concurrent viewers (at any given time, starting Day 1 of PAX. Must provide proof that viewership numbers were achieved.)
  • YouTubers who showcase the game and receive more than 100,000 views on a single video with Star Wars:Uprising content.
  • Cosplayers who come to the booth in Star Wars cosplay — bonus if it is Star Wars: Uprising cosplay are randomly selected among PAX attendees wearing Star Wars: Uprising lanyards and PAX Pins.

Fans who come by the booth will also have the opportunity to participate in special Star Wars: Uprising events:

  • Meet and play the game with Kabam’s game developers.
  • Photo area to pose with one of the key characters in the new storyline
  • Fan meet and greet with actor Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian, Star Wars™: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back™) on Saturday(8/29) from 1pm to 3pm. Official Star Wars: Uprising posters available for autograph signing.

So, if you live in or around the Seattle area, get over to the Washington State Convention Center, for an opportunity to meet a Star Wars legend — the man who is Lando Calrissian — Billy Dee Williams. Also, you’ll be on hand for a really great Star Wars mobile video game that will help connect the story from the end of Return of the Jedi to the beginning of The Force Awakens.
