Hayden Christensen returning to Celebration for Star Wars’ 40th Anniversary

Hayden Christensen will be returning to Celebration for the first time since 2002 as part of the 40th Anniversary panel, joining Mark Hamill, Ian McDiarmid, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Dave Filoni and Kathleen Kennedy. “Many galactic-sized surprises” are still being promised, but this is a fairly big one. (And yes, he’s signing.)

In other Celebration news, there’s now more previews up for the Store, mostly t-shirts.

Today in The Last Jedi: Force for Change merch, Cinemacon peek, and the latest rumors

A first look at some of the first products for The Last Jedi, which will support the Force for Change charitable initiative and launch at Celebration Orlando. Bonus: A new outfit for Rey!

→ There was some footage shown yesterday at CinemaCon as part of a Disney sizzle reel. They were brief shots of Rey on Ahch-To with the blue lightsaber. Unfortunately, there’s also some faked footage floating around that contains none of this. So don’t be fooled. (Seriously, other than a fairly well done photoshop of Adam Driver with a scar, it’s super fake.)

→ Now, rumors! Making Star Wars has two since we last checked in. The first is regarding a piece of scenery that hasn’t yet been officially revealed, and the second says that The Leftovers’ Justin Theroux has a role.
