The panel schedule for the 2023 Star Wars Celebration has been revealed, confirming panels and celebrity appearances throughout the event.
There will be three stages in total, the Celebration Stage, the Star Wars Galaxy Stage, and the Twin Suns stage. Some events held on the Celebration Stage will also be live-streamed to the Galaxy and Twin Suns stages to reach a wider live audience.
The panels will kick off at 11am on Friday, April 7 with an event with Star Wars’ current roster of filmmakers to discuss the future of the franchise, touching on The Mandalorian, Andor, and a cryptic “more”. This could well be when to expect an announcement on a future Star Wars film, after silence from the studio after since the resoundedly unpopular sequel trilogy.
Later on during the first day will see ‘London Calling: Designing Star Wars Productions in the UK’, a panel focused on the set design work for Solo and Rogue one, and ‘The Making of Andor Season One’, which is self-explanatory and will include Tony Gilroy and Diego Luna.
