Star Wars Celebration: where, how and what to watch

By Tribute on April 11, 2019 | 1 Comment


The 20th annual Star Wars Celebration takes place this weekend in Chicago from April 12-15 and it is a jam-packed weekend of highly anticipated news for the blockbuster franchise.

The four-day event will cover all mediums the Star Wars universe inhabits, with a few notable pieces of news highlighting the festivities.

The much-anticipated release of the Star Wars Episode IX trailer tops the list of what fans are most excited about, as very little information on the conclusion to the sequel trilogy has been revealed.

There have been a few snippets here and there, but nothing has been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm other than the end of principal photography and the few set photos that have been released to the public. Needless to say, after the divisive release of The Last Jedi, many are curious to see how The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams will handle the third installment of Disney’s new trilogy.

Though Episode IX is the crown jewel of this fan event, there are many other projects of interest worth keeping note of, including the Disney+ series The Mandalorian from showrunner Jon Favreau. The Mandalorian marks the first live-action Star Wars TV series and has assembled notable talent for it with Pedro Pascal as the series lead.

Fans will also be treated to updates on the new season of the Clone Wars animated series, Season 2 of Disney XD’s Star Wars Resistance, the reveal of EA and Respawn Entertainment’s Jedi: Fallen Order video game, the VR experience Vader Immortal, and lastly new details on Disneyland’s new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge attraction.

For those of us not lucky to attend the event, both StarWars.com and their official YouTube channel  will be live-streaming the event. If you are unable to view the streams, live videos from each panel should be making their way to YouTube by the next day. For the full breakdown of the day-by-day schedule and which panels are taking place each day, check below. ~Paolo Maquiraya
