If you needed more proof that something huge is going to go down at the JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy panel at Star Wars Celebration, here it is! Disney France has revealed that the panel, which will be previewing Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, will be live broadcast to 53 locations in 23 different countries around the globe so that fans everywhere can experience whatever it is Lucasfilm has in store (a new trailer? Clips? Something else?). So far we only know of six locations in France and one location in the UK, but I think we can expect to learn the remainder very soon.
The locations in France are,
- In Paris at the cinéma Gaumont Champs Elysées
- In Marseille at the cinéma Pathé Plan de Campagne
- In Lyon at the cinéma UGC Ciné Cité Confluence
- In Lille at the cinéma Kinepolis de Lomme
- In Bordeaux at the cinéma CGR Le Français Bordeaux
- In Strasbourg at the cinéma UGC Ciné Cité Strasbourg
The UK location, announced earlier today, is Leicester square in London.
As stated above, this seems to indicate that something big is happening. What that is still unknown (though a new trailer sounds like a safe bet), but if Disney and Lucasfilm are pulling out all the stops like this then you know we are in for a treat
