Star Wars Celebration 2020: The Return to Anaheim

Star Wars Celebration 2020: The Return to Anaheim. Lucasfilm has officially announced that the Star Wars Celebration in 2020 will take place in the home of Disneyland itself, Anaheim, California!

This strategic placement of the location for the event next year largely has to do with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort, which is located in Anaheim as well. Though the convention will more than likely take place at a convention center in the city, guests will be in close proximity to the park and can visit either before or after the celebration. The official announcement was made by Lucasfilm representatives at the end of the closing ceremony of the 2019 Star Wars Celebration.

“We can’t wait to see you again in Anaheim in 2020!,” read a tweet from the official Star Wars Celebration account on Twitter.

The last time the Star Wars Celebration was held in Anaheim, California was in 2015.

For those who don’t know, the Star Wars Celebration is a gathering of fans, filmmakers, actors, producers, and a huge list of anyone involved with the creation, production, and love of the Star Wars franchise. Fans can get a sneak peek at the latest and greatest releases by Lucasfilm and affiliated companies involving featured films, television series, previous productions, gaming, novels, comic books, and more, just by attending this event and especially at the highly sought after panels during the celebration.

This year the spoils included a first preview of the trailer and a name reveal for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,”  the 9th Episode in the “Skywalker series” of Star Wars featured films. A look at new merchandise that will be exclusively found at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opening on May 31st in Disneyland and August 29th at Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. They even got a first look at what is to come to the new Disney+ series “The Mandalorian.”

This is a great opportunity for any Star Wars fan to become one with the force and be immersed into the Star Wars Universe. Will we see you at  Star Wars Celebration 2020?
