Disney has announced some of the guests which will be attending the upcoming Star Wars Celebration event, which is taking place in April this Easter. The guests attending the event include some of the cast of many Disney+ Original shows including, “The Mandalorian”, “The Clone Wars”, and “Obi-Wan Kenobi”.

Attending the event will be Hayden Christensen, who played the pivotal role of Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005), as the noble Jedi Knight turned to the dark side and became Darth Vader. In 2022, Christensen made a long-awaited return to the role in Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+, starring opposite Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi.

From “The Mandalorian”, Katee Sackhoff, the actor behind Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze, will make her second Celebration appearance in London. Sackhoff portrayed Bo-Katan in the animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels”, before bringing the character to life in live-action in “The Mandalorian”.

Also attending the event, will be James Arnold Taylor, who plays the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, is also heading to London. Taylor has long been an integral part of the saga, giving voice to stormtroopers, aliens, Imperials, and more in films including “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”.

In addition, Mads Mikkelsen, who played scientist Galen Erso in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, is set to attend.

Finally, Denis Lawson will also land at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023. Lawson portrayed the fan-favorite rebel pilot Wedge Antilles in the original Star Wars trilogy, making a welcome return to the role in 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”.

Other actors attending Star Wars Celebration will be Anthony Daniels, who plays C3-PO, along with Ashley Eckstein, who is the voice of Ahsoka in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, “Star Wars Rebels”, and “Tales of the Jedi”, will reunite with fellow Clone Wars alum and Sky Guy Matt Lanter, the voice of Anakin Skywalker, as well as Dee Bradley Baker, the longtime voice of clone troopers in Star Wars animation and most recently the majority of Clone Force 99 in “Star Wars: The Bad Batch”, performing as Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Echo, and Crosshair.

And from live action, they’ll be joined by Giancarlo Esposito, whose nefarious Moff Gideon challenged Din Djarin and hunted Grogu in The Mandalorian, and newcomers from the Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series Vivien Lyra Blair, who brought the spark of rebellion to young Leia Organa, and Indira Varma, who played double-agent Tala Durith.

These actors will be available for a limited number of photograph and autograph sessions during the weekend, which can be booked through Official Pix.  And I’d expect these actors to also be involved in some panels during the weekend.

Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023 will be held from April 7th to April 10th, 2023, at the ExCeL London in England.
