Star Wars: The Last Jedi will not be having a panel at San Diego Comic Con this year, according to io9’s Germain Lussier and backed by the San Diego Comic Con Unofficial Blog. The latter reached out to Lucasfilm recently and they were told that Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s “presence at SDCC 2017 will be focused on our booth on the convention floor, so there will be no press events or interview opportunities this year.” This likely extends to Han Solo not having a panel as well.
It makes sense since the movie will be having presentations at D23 this year, along with Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther. Disney and Lucasfilm might not want to put in their efforts for another event happening the week immediately after.
