Star Wars Celebration Anaheim promises to be the best Star Wars celebration to date! The following are my personal “can’t miss” panels and event going on over the celebration weekend.
Check it out!
1. Writer/Director/Producer J.J. Abrams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy
Don’t miss the big kickoff for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. Star Wars: The Force AwakensWriter/Director/Producer J.J. Abrams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy will be on the Celebration Stage, joined by special guests. This panel is scheduled to be simulcast to the Digital Stage from the Celebration Stage.
2. The Music of John Williams with David Collins
David’s work on the Star Wars Oxygen podcast is unparalleled. He is – in my view – the expert on John Williams work and if you love the scores to the Star Wars films as much as I do, you can’t miss this event.
3. Premiere! Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith in 3D Introduced by Ian McDiarmid
Ian McDiarmid, the actor behind Emperor Palpatine, introduces the world premiere of Revenge of the Sith in 3D. You’ll receive souvenir 3D glasses from RealD, but be sure to take them off for the screening of A New Hope in 2D, immediately following Sith.
4. Global Premiere: Star Wars Rebels Season Two
Witness the global premiere of Star Wars Rebels season two, which continues the epic adventures of the crew of the Ghost and further reveals the early days of the rebellion against the Empire. Attendees will be the first to see the opening two episodes of season two following an encore screening of the series’ season one finale.
5. Conversations with Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank
Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart and Pablo Hidalgo will be joined by directors Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank, who will share their experiences as the newest members of the Lucasfilm creative family. Learn how the teams came together and are collaborating to conceive and create the upcoming stand-alone films in the galaxy far, far away.
That’s my top 5! There’s so much more going on Celebration weekend, but these are my weekend bucket list items. I hope to see you in Anaheim!
