We’ve been stuck for a while now with a teaser trailer and news of Harrison Ford’s on-set injury and plane crash, so it’s safe to say that news on the Star Wars front has been a little dry. Well the wait is almost over, as a new trailer is rumoured to be revealed shortly.
Star Wars is hosting a Celebration live streaming event in Anaheim, California later today at 10am PST (6pm UK). This is going to be a truly epic event. It’s not just a live panel discussion, it is a four day live streaming event, which includes over 30 hours of content. There will be a kick-off panel with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy, followed by further panels, discussions with actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Ian McDiarmid and various other performers associated with the saga.
The streaming will come from a special Cantina set at the Anahiem Celebration convention. Star Wars is literally big enough for its own convention, who needs Comic Con?!
Those going to the event will also find out more about the new Battlefront video game and Star Wars Film Fan Awards. Those that want to watch the live streaming can head to the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, London, or various cinemas across the US. It will also be streamed live at starwars.com, which is where I will be tuning in.
Stay tuned for more info…
