Star Wars Celebration Orlando panel schedule released — Maul and Sidious reunite


The full Star Wars Celebration Orlando panel schedule has been released and it features a reunion between Darth Sidious and his apprentice Darth Maul, as well as the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel….

Star Wars Celebration Orlando is just around the corner (April 13 – 16) and has just released some dates, times, and locations for parts of the panel schedule. This schedule holds information for three stages at the event: The Celebration, the Behind the Scenes stage, and the Galaxy stage.

Iconic Star Wars actor Warwick Davis will play host at the Celebration stage, which is located on the 3rd floor of the Chapin Theater. At the 2016 Star Wars Celebration, Davis had one of the most memorable interviews ever held, with our dearly departed Princess, Carrie Fisher. Here’s that:
