Comic-Con.org has released the program schedule for Thursday July 21, the opening day of Comic Con 2011 (excluding preview night on Wednesday). You can check out the full schedule here on their site. Some of the Star Wars highlights include a Kinect Star Wars Panel with Jorg Neumann (Kinect Publishing studio head), Craig Derrick (LucasArts lead producer), and Mike Snider (USA Today) to discuss new gameplay including the reveal of a new game mode and an undisclosed “exciting” announcement.

There will be a Spotlight of comic artist Jo Chen who worked on the covers for Star Wars: Invasion. That panel will be moderated by Scott Allie, Dark Horse comics editor, and writer for Star Wars: Jedi – The Dark Side.

Star Wars: The Old Republic : Join Us, It Is Your Destiny panel will have both BioWare and LucasArts showing off their big ticket item. BioWare developers will be discussing the development of Star Wars: The Old Republic, sharing new gameplay, reveals, and a questions and answer session.

Pablo Hidalgo will be hosting a Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season Four Preview, “The Clone Wars intensifies in the upcoming season, as new battle lines are drawn, new threats arise, and old enemies resurface.” Supervising director Dave Filoni, CG lighting/FX supervisor Joel Aron, and other members of the Lucasfilm Animation team will be there.

Mark Hamill will be on hand for the Batman: Arkham City panel.

The Her Universe: What Women Want in Their Female Sci-Fi Heroes panel will be hosted by Ashley Eckstein (the voice actress for Ahsoka in Star Wars: The Clone Wars). It will be “a dynamic panel of creative minds from television, film, and comics to explore this timely topic” and will also feature Dave Filoni, Chris Sanagustin (Universal Cable Productions), Bryan Q. Miller (Smallville/DC’s Batgirl), Betsy Mitchell (Del Rey Books), Melinda Hsu Taylor (Lost/Medium/Touch), and Gail Simone (DC’s Birds of Prey/Secret Six/Wonder Woman/Batgirl).

The first day will be capped off with the Star Wars Fan Movie Awards. The George Lucas Selects Award, selected by George Lucas himself, will be awarded as the grand prize and the event will be hosted by David Collins.
