We think it’s safe to say that Star Wars has become a huge part of the Disney Universe.

Star Wars has become so big in fact that Disney Parks gave the film series its own super immersive Resort experience – the Galactic Starcruiser Hotel – as well as its own land. Guests and Star Wars superfans can find Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and in Disneyland Park. Even Space Mountain in Hong Kong Disneyland and Disneyland Paris have been themed to classic sci-fi series.

Now, an announcement has been made to honor the legendary Star Wars film series. From May 26 through May 29, 2022, there will be a Star Wars Celebration, in a galaxy far, far away…, or it could just be at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, it’s definitely one of the two.

Tickets have been on sale since mid-March, and they have been announcing that quite a few big names in the Star Wars community will be attending. It has recently been announced on the Star Wars Celebration Twitter account, that even Obi-Wan Kenobi, himself will be there. That’s right, Ewan McGregor will be at the Anaheim Convention Center for photos and to sign autographs on May 26 and May 27, 2022.

We’re sure that we could all agree that Ewan McGregor alone is a huge draw, but he is only one of the many stars in the Star Wars Universe that will be at this special event. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni will be on hand to talk about everything to do with their Disney+ television series The Mandalorian – and that’s just the beginning.

Some of the other big Lucasfilm names that you may come across while at the Star Wars Celebration will be Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Katee Sackhoff (Bo-Katan Kryze), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), and many, many more.
