Star Wars Celebration 2017 badge art revealed
Rogue One may have already landed in theaters, but Lucasfilm is already gearing up for the next Star Wars Celebration, which takes place in Orlando, Florida from April 13-16, 2017, at the Orange County Convention Center. Today, the company has revealed the twelve different badges that can be found at the event, as created by artist Paul Shipper, and featuring some of your favorite Star Wars characters!
“The main thing for me was pleasing everybody at Lucasfilm,” Shipper tells StarWars.com. “And then in turn, because they would like them, then hopefully the fans will enjoy them, as well. It’s a case of trying to do something that would be very different from anything that’s maybe been done before, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars.”
In additional Star Wars Celebration 2017 news, Lucasfilm has also confirmed that Warwick Davis will return to panel-hosting duties for the event! Check out all of the badges below and secure your tickets for the event by clicking here!
With 2017’s event coming just months after the release of Rogue One, we can likely expect announcements about Star Wars: Episode VIII and plenty of exclusive merchandise to reflect the 40th anniversary of the original film’s release.
