While the virtual con isn’t replacing Star Wars Celebration, it is certainly a fun way to connect with other fans on May 4th.
While San Diego Comic Con has been canceled, there is no word yet if Celebration is still on. Although, California governor Gavin Newsom has said convention centers will be one of the last things to open in California. Celebration is scheduled for late August in Anaheim.
This virtual convention might also be a way for Reed Pop to do a smaller test run in preparation for a canceled Celebration.
Will you be joining in the fun for May the Fourth?
