With dozens of panels coming to Star Wars Celebration, we give you a list of six you won’t want to miss.
Star Wars Celebration is a time to meet up with friends, get cool swag and get all the greatest and latest news on Star Wars. This year’s SWCC will be extra special as Star Wars has plenty of new content on the way.
Between panels for movies, live-action TV series, animated series, books, comics and more, there will be a slew of information for fans.

But with so many panels, which ones should you check out? We have a list of six must-see panels for Star Wars Celebration.
Star Wars: Episode IX
Time: Friday, April 12 11 a.m.-Noon CT
It’s the first panel of the convention, and the one that everyone will be watching whether in the convention center or at home. Fans will be glued to their seats, phone, tablets or anything else that will get them the information from this panel.
The only two confirmed guests are Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams, but there are bounds to be many others. Rumors have swirled that the Episode IX cast members are going to be at Star Wars Celebration, but considering they’re not assigned to any panels or in the autograph pavilion that really leaves for one big surprise for the Episode IX panel.
Also, we’re sure that a trailer for Episode IX is coming during this panel. That is worth the price of admission alone because Star Wars fans have been waiting not-so-patiently for a trailer.
And with all of the false alarms, Star Wars Celebration is finally the moment it arrives.
Maybe even a title too.
Of all the panels at Celebration, this will be one that Star Wars are not going to want to miss.
