This weekend, Orlando is about to be transported to a galaxy far far away
when Star Wars Celebration arrives to ring in the saga’s 40th Anniversary.
Fans from all over the world are gearing up for the event which will no
doubt bring about several announcements for the future of the hit
franchise. One of the more anticipated panels “40 Years of Star Wars” is
scheduled to feature Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, Warwick Davis
(Wicket), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Hayden Christensen (Anakin
Skywalker), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Ian
McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine), and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) as they all look
back on their experiences with the Star Wars saga and how it has helped
mold the lives of people today.
Other panels include Star Wars Collectibles and Toys, Hasbro, Star Wars
Origami, Droid Racing, The Growing Galaxy of Women’s Star Wars Fashion, as
well as sneak peak screenings from the upcoming season of Star Wars Rebels.
The most anticipated panel of all, however is that of Star Wars: The Last
Jedi. The eighth film in the Skywalker saga, “The Last Jedi” promises to be
the greatest chapter of the story to date. Rumor has it that this panel
will feature the unveiling of the first official trailer for the film.
Without the public having seen any footage or even images from the film
save for a few toy promos, The Last Jedi panel is not to be missed.
