Held at Anaheim’s Convention Center, the event has been a major gathering for fans since it began in Denver in 1999 to celebrate the then-upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. Subsequent events were held to celebrate the releases of upcoming films or anniversaries of past projects, as well as first-time celebrations outside of the United States with 2007’s Celebration Europe in London and Celebration Japan in 2008.
