The Ultimate Star Wars Fan Experience is Coming to London!
Star Wars Celebration to take place at London’s Excel Centre,
15 – 17th July
Star Wars Celebration Europe is the biggest Star Wars fan experience in the galaxy and this summer it will be taking place right here in London. From 15th to 17th July at ExCeL London Exhibition Centre, fans from across the globe will gather together to celebrate the phenomenon that is Star Wars. Over the past 40 years, since filming took place at Elstree Studios for Star Wars: A New Hope in 1976, London has played an incredibly important role in its history which makes it all the more exciting that Celebration Europe 2016 will be here next month.
Looking ahead, while celebrating all that has come before, Star Wars Celebration Europe will be three fun-filled days of exciting panels, exhibits, a vibrant interactive show floor, special merchandise, autograph sessions, costumes, screenings, fan-inspired activities, celebrity guests, as well as many more surprises perfect for fans and families of all ages.
The main stage, hosted by Warwick Davis, will be home to many of the biggest shows and brightest stars of the weekend. Fans will get to spend separate hours with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Anthony Daniels as well as other special guests, get a sneak-peek at the third season of the hit series Star Wars Rebels, grab some super-secret glimpses of the upcoming feature film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, as well as attend special screenings of Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fans will also get the opportunity to hear from the storytellers at Lucasfilm, see actual costumes and props from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for the first time and hear from the filmmakers themselves. To close Celebration, fans will get the chance to hear from the future Star Wars filmmakers Rian Johnson (Star Wars: Episode VIII) and directing duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord (the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story). Additional to the main stage, a whole host of interesting panel sessions will take place throughout the venue over the three day event.
