Celebration Anaheim will be a big event—it’s the first Celebration event with the Disney era in full swing, with novels, comics and a TV series season already produced and one film in post-production with another in pre-production. This is the event where Lucasfilm will get to wow the fans in a way they’ve never been able to before.
With solid rumours that the second teaser for The Force Awakens will debut during the opening panel as well as hints that not one but two new Marvel comics will be announced at the event, Lucasfilm have good reason to get as many people virtually “attending” as possible… which is why they’re streaming the event live and archiving it on Youtube.
That last point is crucial. The opening panel will take place at 3am this Friday Sydney time, for example, so those of us Down Under will still get a chance to see the panel without having to get up in the middle of the night.
Here are the highlights:
- 30+ hours of the event streamed live
- Over a dozen panels and events will be featured
- Star Wars Fan Film Awards
- Smuggler’s Bounty radio drama
- Battlefront presentation
- Variety show-style interviews on a mock-up of the Mos Eisley Cantina set
Are you ready? I sure am.
