Set to take place this July at the ExCeL London Exhibition Centre, Star Wars Celebration 2016 is Lucasfilm’s love letter to fans. Beginning July 15, the event will feature three fun filled days of costumes, exhibits, a vibrant, interactive show floor, screenings, exclusive merchandise, celebrity guests, panels, autograph sessions, fan-inspired activities, and other surprises celebrating all things Star Wars. Star Wars Celebration 2016 aims to deliver a landmark experience where memories are made, families brought together, old friends reunited, and new friendships formed — all in the setting of the ever-evolving Star Wars universe.
Last year’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim had an estimated 50,000 fans in attendance. Much of the event was live streamed on StarWars.com where a number of trailers made their debut, including the second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, an official reveal of Star Wars Battlefront, and the first look at Rogue One. CS will be in London for Star Wars Celebration 2016, so check back for updates!
