Today saw a wrap on Star Wars Celebration Europe, which has been taking place at the Excel Center in London, England over the Easter weekend. During the weekend, we’ve learned about three new Star Wars films in development and seen trailers for “Star Wars: Visions: Volume 2” and “Star Wars:Ahsoka”.

Last month, it was revealed in an official Star Wars blog post that there wouldn’t be Star Wars Celebration in 2024 and that the event would return in 2025, leading many to speculate that the biggest Star Wars event in the world would return to the United States, likey in Orlando or Chicago.

During the closing ceremony, it was officially revealed that the next Star Wars Celebration event will be taking place in Japan over the Easter Weekend of April 18th through to the 20th, 2025.

As you might expect, the reaction to the show heading to Japan, hasn’t gone down well with fans in the US, who had expected the show to return to the US after this year’s event in Europe, but no doubt fans in Japan will be over the moon of this new announcement, since the last Star Wars Celebration event to take place in Japan was in 2008. And it will be the first time a Star Wars Celebration has been held in Japan since Disney took over Lucasfilm in 2012.

With multiple Star Wars films and shows set to be released over the coming years, with the new films likely years away, Disney must have felt like it was a good time for the event to return to Japan. But it also is likely to mean we are much less likely to see as many announcements for Disney+ at the event as we’ve seen in the last few years.
