Star Wars Celebration will return to Anaheim in late May after an extended hiatus. The galaxy’s grandest convention was originally slated for August 2020 but was postponed until August 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event’s timetable has been adjusted to bring it closer to previous Celebration dates, giving fans much to look forward to in the next year.
Like past Celebration, this one will feature a variety of different panels that aim to cover a vast variety of projects from films, TV series, books, games, and more! What makes these panels so breathtaking is when fans have the chance to get up and personal with some of their favorite Star Wars actors and celebrities.
The event arranges picture sessions and autograph signings with a small group of guests, many of whom have drawn long lines for the chance to meet them. As the day of Celebration approaches, the first wave of celebrities confirmed for the event has been released.
