The final day of Star Wars Celebration Chicago was on a Monday, which was a bit odd. Usually Sunday is the last day and you’re either in a mad rush to leave at the end of the day or you wait till Monday and leave at your leisure. The big panel that day was the 20th anniversary of The Phantom Menace. I didn’t win the lottery for it, and instead of heading to the live stream stage to catch it, I opted to go to the Lucasfilm Publishing Writers Roundtable.

The head for the six-eyed alien in Solo‘s sabacc scene used this technology so just looking down, left or right would cause all of the eyes to move in that direction. They would also blink and twitch on their own to make the whole thing appear more life like. A puppeteer could override the motions as needed to pull off certain scenes.
