Star Wars Celebration Returns to Orlando in 2017

After a three-year absence, Star Wars Celebration will return to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando April 13-16, 2017.

The event is the official Star Wars fan convention, featuring actors from the films and TV shows, book authors, and many more Star Wars-related guests.

No guests have been announced yet, but when Celebration was last held in Orlando, in 2012, guests included Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and even George Lucas.

The film Star Wars VIII is also set to be released later that year on December 15, so it’s possible there may be a first trailer for the film shown.

There will also be plenty of merchandise to buy and cosplay to enjoy. If you are a Star Wars fan, you won’t want to miss this! Fans will be coming from all over the world to this.

“Star Wars Celebration has always been about the fans,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “It allows Lucasfilm to connect directly with the thousands of fans who have given their dedication and support to the world of Star Wars over the years, and is the perfect opportunity for us to give something back.”

Tickets, including 4-day, single-day, and VIP, are scheduled to go on sale Wednesday, May 25, at 12pm PT/3pm ET/9pm GMT at starwarscelebration.com.
