Star Wars Celebration 2017 is just two months away! And this year’s Orlando-hosted event just made things even more interesting by announcing that “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson (“Brick”, “Looper”) will be joining Lucasfilm president and “The Last Jedi” producer Kathleen Kennedy on stage for a panel about the highly-anticipated “Episode VIII”.
Celebration has also revealed that the “Last Jedi” panel, to be held Friday, April 14th on the main stage at the convention, will include a lineup of surprise special guests — more than likely including cast members from the movie, which is due out this December.
