Today, Lucasfilm and EW have given a plethora of announcements and the buck hasn't stopped with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In the last hour, Lucasfilm have publically shared a 'sneak peak' schedule for the 'Celebration Stage' at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016. The main events will include a disclosure of details on Star Wars: Rebels Season 3, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Behind the Scenes of 'The Force Awakens' and panels with special guests, including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Anthony Daniels. I have put synopsis for the main events down below. You can read further details on the Star Wars Celebration website. Take a look at the full schedule down below :

Friday, July 15:

11:30 - 12:30: An Hour With Mark Hamill

The panel will end with a live demo of one of the creature shop's amazing Star Wars characters. 

14:00 - 15:00: Anthony Daniels, Without Protocol

16:00 - 18:00: Star Wars Rebels Season 3

19:00 - 20:00: Meet the Creators: The Minds Behind EA's Star Wars Games

In a roundtable discussion, the creative leaders of Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes and Star Wars: The Old Republic and other future Star Wars video game projects from EA will disclose their behind-the-scenes stories of the future of Star Wars gaming at EA. 

21:00 - 23:30: Screening: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It seems like only yesterday that you watched this movie at cinemas. Well now, you can relive the film on the big screen, as you watch the theatrical version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the Celebration Stage.

Sunday, July 17:

11:00 - 12:00: Carrie Fisher: The Princess Diaries

Join Carrie Fisher, who portrays our favorite Princess from a Galaxy Far Far Away, as she provides an hour of on and off the screen insights into one of our most beloved Star Wars characters.

13:00 - 14:00: Ray Park Unleashed (Darth Maul)

Ray Park - the actor who portrayed the Sith Warrior in the Phantom Menace, Darth Maul - will take to the stage and interact with Celebration Host, and alleged Sith Apprentice, Warwick Davis. 

It seems like Lucasfilm have situated their big panels on Friday and Saturday late afternoon, with the Rogue One panel at 16:00 on Friday and the Star Wars: Rebels panel at 16:00 on Saturday. Will we see a new trailer for these two projects? I would hazard a guess that this is a very likely possibility. All in all, Saturday seems to be the day you won't want to miss. There is a heavy Force Awakens and gaming presence throughout the day on Saturday, including a screening of the Force Awakens movie.

Let us know what you're looking forward to most, in the comment section down below.
