The galaxy far, far away is coming to Anaheim, and you’ll be able to meet some of your Star Wars favorites this May!

The Star Wars Celebration officially announced its first round of guests today. And fans can look forward to plenty of big names making an appearance at the event.

Leading the lineup is Anthony Daniels, aka everyone’s favorite neurotic golden droid C-3PO. Daniels has the distinction of being the only actor to work on all eleven Star Wars feature films, appearing as C-3PO in all three trilogies, plus Rogue One. He also made a cameo in Solo as Tak.

Also attending the Star Wars Celebration? Ian McDiarmid, Emperor Palpatine himself. Plus, Clone Wars fan favorite Ashley Eckstein, voice of Ahsoka Tano, will also attend.

Daniels, McDiarmid, and Eckstein will join a huge array of Star Wars creatives at the celebration. Look out for Lucasfilm VP and executive creative director Doug Chiang; longtime Star Wars Celebration stage host and author Amy Ratcliffe; stage host and sound designer David W. Collins; Star Wars author Dan Zehr; and the owner of Rancho Obi-Wan Steve Sansweet.

Official Pix will again manage autographs for the show. Expect reservation details and mail-in options to be revealed soon as other guests are announced.

The Star Wars Celebration will be held May 26 – 29 at the Anaheim Convention Center. To learn more about the event and grab tickets, visit
