With Star Wars Celebration heading to Chicago this April, a poster has arrived online for this year’s convention which features the heroes and villains of the Prequel, Original and Sequel Trilogies. Check it out here…
Star Wars Celebration 2019 will run between April 11th and April 15th at McCormick Place. Details on the specifics of the event are being kept under wraps, but the organisers have announced the first details on the guest line-up, whcih will include Joonas Suotamo (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Sam Witwer (Star Wars Rebels), Greg Grunberg (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Greg Proops (Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace), Paul Kasey (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Ian McElhinney (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Orli Shoshan (Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith).
So, no big names from the galaxy far, far away announced just yet, but one would have to assume that Disney and Lucasfilm will be showcasing Star Wars: Episode IX at the convention, and so it would seem a pretty safe bet that J.J. Abrams and his cast will make an appearance at some point over the weekend.
Star Wars: Episode IX is set for release on December 20th 2019 with J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) directing a cast that includes Star Wars veterans Daisy Ridley (Rey), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Greg Grunberg (Snap Wexley), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa) as well as new additions Naomi Ackie (Lady Mabeth), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), Matt Smith (Doctor Who) and Keri Russell (The Americans).
