Lucasfilm has released a best of Celebration Orlando video highlighting the biggest moments from this year’s ultimate Star Wars fan event.
Star Wars Celebration Orlando brought together fans of all ages from all over the world to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film franchise that revolutionized the entertainment industry and remember Hollywood’s most iconic heroine — the glue that held the rebellion together — Carrie Fisher.
The 40th Anniversary Panel featured Star Wars creator George Lucas, President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy, Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni as well as cast members Mark Hamill, Ian McDiarmid, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, and Peter Mayhugh along with a heartfelt tribute to Carrie Fisher from her daughter Billie Lourd as well as a tribute video. The panel also featured a surprise appearance from Harrison Ford and a surprise performance from legendary composer John Williams.
The panel for the upcoming eighth installment of the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi featured Kennedy along with director Rian Johnson and much of the cast including Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran — who was introduced as a new character, a maintenance worker in the resistance named Rose — as they debuted the teaser poster as well as the teaser trailer for the upcoming film.
On Saturday, Rebels exec producer Filoni announced the fourth season of the series would be the final season moments before the trailer was released. Fans in attendance at the panel were also treated to a screening of the first episode of season four.
