In this week’s Star Wars Show, Andi and Peter announce that ILMxLAB will be at Celebration Europe and interview Finding Dory co-director Angus MacLane.
Dave Filoni will debut the first two episodes of Star Wars Rebels season 3 at Celebration Europe, StarWars.com announced today.
Andi and Peter also reveal the key art from Celebration Europe, and they’re also asking for questions for Dennis Muren next week.
And it even starts off with a pair of very special guest appearances…
Celebration Europe has added Carrie Fisher as a spotlight guest, and reporter/podcaster Amy Ratcliffe as host of the Behind-the-Scenes Stage. She joins returning stage hosts Warwick Davis and David Collins.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Rogue One director Gareth Edwards will present a special panel at Celebration Europe along with “special guests.”
The Friday event could be similar to The Force Awakens reveal at last year’s Celebration Anaheim, which featured several stars (John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, among others) as well as a second teaser trailer.
We’re just under a year away from the start of the third Celebration Europe, and 3-Day Adult tickets for the convention are already sold out. It will be held at London’s ExCeL Center on July 15-17 in 2016.
Celebration Anaheim in April, the first Celebration to sell out most badges, was attended by about 60K fans.
The convention is expected to return to the U.S. for 2017.
Celebration is winding down here in Anaheim, and it was just announced at the Closing Ceremonies that the next one will return us to London’s ExCel, the site of the first Celebration Europe back in 2007. It’ll be July 15-17, 2016, and tickets will go sale tomorrow.
We’re also seeing the return of Fan Relations, with Lucasfilm vet Pete Vilmur at the helm.
Big thanks go out to Mary Franklin and all the folks at Lucasfilm and Reed for bringing all this to us!
