What is Star Wars Celebration
On April 30th, 1999 the first Star Wars Celebration ( Star Wars Celebration I) kicked off just three weeks before the theatrical release of, "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace." For fans across the world it was the end of a sixteen year wait for another Star Wars theatrical release. The event kicked off a tradition of large scale events celebrating all things Star Wars. This year, Orlando will be kicking off the 12th Star Wars Celebration... and it won't be the last.
Star Wars Celebration has been called the ultimate fan experience focused on our favorite stories told in a galaxy far, far away. Star Wars Celebration calls the event "Lucasfilm's love letter to fans." The days are filled with cosplay, exhibits from the films, an interactive show floor, screenings, exclusive Star Wars Celebration merchandise, star studded guests, autograph opportunities, and must-see panels featuring cast members from the Original Trilogy, the Prequels, The Clone Wars TV show, and the Disney-era films and TV shows.
In just a few days, fans will get to see a new trailer for "Episode VIII: The Last Jedi" and be the first to hear exclusive news about upcoming Star Wars Anthology films (Obi-Wan? Boba Fett? Darth Vader?)
