With exactly two weeks to go, we are delighted to announce today our eighth and final guest for Echo Base Con 2023: Justin van der Lek!

We are still incredibly proud of Justin, who worked with us once as a member of the crew during Echo Base Charity Con 2003 and has since become an indispensable member of staff at Industrial Light + Magic and Lucasfilm. He was a guest with us for the first time in 2017 , having worked on the visual effects of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

In the nearly six years since his visit, he has not been idle: he has worked for ILM on several Marvel films such as Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame, and made a huge contribution to The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian as visual effects supervisor. He is currently working on the new series Ahsoka.

During Echo Base Con 2023, he will not only participate in the The Mandalorian-panel together with Brendan Wayne, but will also talk about his career in visual effects in a panel of his own. For fans, an absolutely unmissable and above all unique look behind the scenes. So don't miss this chance to meet Justin van der Lek in person and hear all about his experiences.
