While everyone currently has their focus set on this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, ReedPOP has revealed Lucasfilm will soon announce the date and location for the next Star Wars Celebration. The ultimate fan gathering event will skip 2018 and return sometime during 2019.
ReedPOP wrote the following on the official site for Star Wars Celebration:
“Celebration is the official, definitive Star Wars event, with entertainment, interactive experiences and exclusives that can only be found at this Lucasfilm production. They are the ultimate community fan gathering as well, and friends will want to start planning to be together again to commemorate everyone’s favorite saga. The next official Celebration is slated for a location and date soon-to-be announced, in 2019.”
The news itself comes as a bit of a shock as fans were expecting for a Han Solo heavy Celebration as 2018 will see the release of the Untitled Han Solo Story starring Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover which is currently slated for May 25, 2018.
Instead, the next Celebration should fall in time to kick off the marketing campaign for the ninth installment of the Skywalker saga and the final episode in the sequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX directed by Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World). Trevorrow is also writing the script with his Jurassic World writing partner Derek Connoly based on a treatment from The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson.

Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best
Star Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.
Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and now Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
In honor of Rogue One being released in theaters, Heroic Hollywood is ranking every Star Wars film from worst to best. It should be noted that this countdown doesn’t include any of the animated series or the Holiday Special. Check out our rankings by clicking next!
