The news that “Star Wars” animation fans have been dying to know about regarding Celebration Chicago has finally been announced, as it was revealed today at StarWars.com and on The Star Wars Show that not one, but three different animation panels will be held at Celebration this year! One for “Star Wars Resistance,” one for “Star Wars Rebels,” and I think the one most fans are anxious for, one for “The Clone Wars”!
Here are all the details announced for the three panels so far from StarWars,com:
On Saturday, April 13, join Dave Filoni, Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Gray for the Star Wars Rebels Remembered panel. The Ghost crew went from a single scrappy crew of rebels to a vital part of the larger cause over four seasons. Although the series is over (and there won’t be a surprise announcement of a new series during this panel), we’ll never forget the characters who deepened our knowledge of the Force, made us laugh and cry, and gave us hope.
On Sunday, April 14, get together with Dave Filoni and special guests to celebrate the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and share an exclusive sneak peek at things to come.
And on Monday, April 15, it’s time to join the Resistance for a look back at the shocking season one finale and a preview of the second season of Star Wars Resistance with Executive Producers Justin Ridge, Athena Portillo, Brandon Auman, and members of the cast including Christopher Sean, Suzie McGrath, Scott Lawrence, Myrna Velasco, and Donald Faison.
This is really some exciting news. We knew that “Star Wars” animation would have a presence at Celebration like it always does, but the fact that we’re getting three different panels on all three series is great to hear, and one focusing on “Star Wars Rebels” is s real nice surprise.
