The Force is buzzing in Florida as today marks the beginning of the 3 day ‘Star Wars’ Celebration con! And while many of us are unable to attend this haven of ‘Star Wars’ geekdom, Disney has thankfully taken upon themselves to expand the con to those who can’t be there physically. Starting today and running through Sunday, select panels at the ‘Star Wars’ Celebration con will be live streamed so that you, too, won’t miss out!
Some of the news and panels we are anticipating is a new trailer for ‘The Last Jedi’ and the tribute from Mark Hamill to the late Carrie Fisher. Here’s a rundown of some of what will be covered for Thursday, April 13, and Friday, April 14:
