Everything Happening at Star Wars Celebration 2017

By Tom Pritchard on at

Right now Orlando is playing host to one of the biggest events in the modern geek's calendar: Star Wars Celebration. With it comes the direction of the franchise for the next 12 months, and beyond, which is extra exciting these days given how much effort Disney and Lucasfilm are putting into expanding the franchise.

We're going to be covering all of the biggest news here on Giz UK, and this post is where we're going to collect everything that goes up on site between now and Sunday night. So that makes it completely effortless to stay on top of everything. Or, alternatively, you can watch everything as it happens thanks to the magic of livestreaming.

full schedule of everything going on in Florida can be found here, but these are the big news-packed panels we think you should watch out for:

  • The Last Jedi panel (which will, presumably have a trailer or some sort of footage included) - Friday 14th, 16:30 BST
  • Rebels Season 4 panel - Saturday 15th, 16:00 BST
  • Battlefront II Panel - Saturday 15th, 19:30 BST

  • Star Wars and Disney Parks: A Galaxy in the Making - Saturday 15th, 21:30 BST
  • Hasbro Star Wars - Saturday 15th, 22:00 BST

And here are the panels that aren't going to be full of exclusive reveals, but we think will be worth watching anyway:

  • Dave Filoni: Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates - Thursday 13th, 18:30 BST
  • Smooth Talkin’ With Billy Dee Williams - Thursday 13th, 18:30 BST
  • Ian McDiarmid: Tales from the Dark Side - Thursday 13th, 20:15 BST
