Star Wars Celebration – what announcements can we expect from this year’s convention?


It’s only a month until this year’s Star Wars Celebration, a four-day celebration of everything Star Wars. It’s also the place that Lucasfilm have historically chosen to announce new projects and to premiere never-before-seen footage.

These are just some of the things that may – just MAY – be revealed at this year’s event...

A Last Jedi trailer?

Given that the first Force Awakens trailer dropped a whole year before the movie hit cinemas, then it means we’re well overdue a teaser for its follow-up, The Last Jedi. We know that a trailer has been shown for Disney shareholders, so we’re hoping that we can get our first glimpse of Rian Johnson’s space sequel this April (maybe with a bit of Luke Skywalker action!).

Anything on the new Han Solo movie

Given that the Han Solo movie is currently shooting (for a 25 May 2018 release date), then surely we’ll get our first glimpse of the hotly anticipated movie at the Celebration. A Making Of featurette maybe? A shot of Alden Ehrenreich in character perhaps? Dare we dream of some finished footage? We’ve got our fingers and toes crossed for this one.

More spin-off movie news? 

With Rogue One having been released last Christmas and Han Solo currently in production, fans’ eyes are looking to the NEXT spin-off film out of the Lucasfilm stable. We do know that Fantastic Four director Josh Trank was once involved in a third spin-off movie (rumoured to have been about fan favourite Boba Fett), but he left that project nearly two years ago, with no news of a replacement.

Will news of a Boba Fett movie be revealed or will we see an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie announced (Ewan McGregor has been tight-lipped recently regarding his possible involvement)? Or maybe even a third, as-yet-unrumoured option? A Jar-Jar Binks biopic, anyone?

A new TV show? 

Could Lucasfilm be eyeing up a live-action Star Wars TV series, to air alongside their animated hit Star Wars Rebels? Before Lucasfilm was bought by Disney, George Lucas was working on his own live-action (though heavily CGI-ed) series, entitled Star Wars: Underworld. Maybe this iteration of Lucasfilm be cooking up their own TV venture…? We hope so!

Star Wars Celebration takes place in Orlando, Florida, between 13–16 April.
