At the conclusion of Celebration Europe II, Lucasfilm revealed that the next Star Wars Celebration convention will be held in Anaheim, California, on April 16-19, 2015. As of this morning, tickets for the convention are now available for purchase on the convention’s official website. Details and pricing on the general-admission tickets are posted, as well. Intrepid travelers can even book a hotel reservation now through ReedPop’s official vendor at a discounted convention rate. Last week, Tricia and Teresa shared their initial thoughts about Celebration Anaheim in Episode 3 of Fangirl Chat.
By the time April of 2015 rolls around, Star Wars Rebels will have begun airing on Disney XD and Episode VII will be close enough to taste. Celebration III in Indianapolis was the last convention to experience the fervor of pre-movie anticipation with the Prequel Trilogy reaching its conclusion, and Celebration Anaheim’s is sure to be even greater as the Sequel Trilogy begins. This convention will be one not to be missed.
If you’re curious what might be store besides the showcase events involving Episode VII, check out our coverage of last year’s Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida. The convention offered a wide range of panels and events over the course of the weekend. Some highlighted The Clone Wars, while others explored the books and comics of the Expanded Universe. Individual authors and creators shared their perspectives on Star Wars and storytelling. And with so many Star Wars notables in attendance, you never know who you might see roaming the floor.
