Celebration’s The Last Jedi panel will be Friday, April 14

To the surprise of no one, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and director Rian Johnson will be on a Celebration Orlando panel on Friday, April 14. The Last Jedi panel is expected debut the film’s first trailer, or at the very least a behind-the-scenes feature, as the con is expected to launch the movie’s first wave of publicity. Expect some other “special guests” to appear as well.

For the past few Celebrations, the first big movie panel has featured the upcoming release, while a second on Sunday focuses on the other upcoming films.

The new Star Wars Show also features more Rogue One behind-the-scenes and a visit to Sideshow.


UPDATE: Johnson took the occasion to post a new behind-the-scenes shot on Tumblr:

Celebration 2017 is only months away, and StarWars.com our first look at the badge art. We also learn who’s hosting the three major stages, and it’s returnees Warwick Davis, David Collins and our pal Amy Ratcliffe, who made her debut on the Behind-The-Scenes Stage at Celebration Europe.

Tickets for 2017’s Celebration Orlando now on sale

Tickets for next year’s Celebration Orlando (April 13-16) went on sale today at noon Pacific, 3 p.m. Eastern. A standard 4-Day Adult pass is $150, while the VIP is going for $700. Here’s a direct link to the ‘virtual queue,’ because waiting in line is a long Star Wars tradition that needs to go virtual!

Remember that while regular tickets for the forthcoming Celebration Europe have sold out more quickly than usual, we’re still not quite at SDCC levels yet. The server is having some issues (of course) but if you wait a day or so (or even a few weeks) chances are there will still be plenty.

This will be the eighth domestic Celebration, and the third at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. 2015’s Celebration Anaheim saw a record 60K fans attend.

Meanwhile, Celebration Europe has annouced their podcast stage lineup.

Star Wars Celebration is returning to Orlando a third time for 2017 – this time in April, thankfully. Celebration Orlando will be held April 13-16 at the Orange County Convention Center, with tickets going on sale May 25 at noon.

The two previous Orlando Celebrations, in 2010 and 2012, were held in August, when Florida is at its most insufferable.
