Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is right around the corner! The excitement is building as we learn more and more about what will surely be the biggest Celebration yet. Today the official Celebration site release a flurry of news today about the convention, which included an interesting development for the very first event taking place in Anaheim. The Force Awakens co-writer and director J.J. Abrams, along with producer and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, will be hosting a special panel at 10:00am(Pacific) on Thursday, April 16th to kick off Celebration. While we don't know for sure what will be revealed at the panel, Lucasfilm has now confirmed that Abrams and Kennedy will be "joined by special guests." Who could those guests be?
I think at least a portion of The Force Awakens' cast will be on the panel. Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker have all been confirmed as guests for Celebration. And it's certainly possible that some of their co-stars, such as Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, or maybe even Harrison Ford, could make an appearance. It would make the most sense, and would certainly be incredible to even see a portion of the cast on stage together!
Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is happening at the Anaheim Convention Center April 16th - 19th in Anaheim, California. If you haven't gotten your tickets yet.... what are you waiting for?!
