This Easter, the Excel Center in London, England, will host Star Wars Celebration Europe, which is the ultimate fan experience focused on the galaxy far, far away…

Fans of all ages from all over the world will come together to celebrate the cultural phenomenon, Star Wars. Star Wars Celebration revels in the excitement of new movies, television shows, books, art, and comics while also commemorating the vast history of the Star Wars universe. Star Wars Celebration has something special for every kind of Star Wars fan!

Star Wars Celebration is a four-day event filled with major announcements, immersive exhibits, an interactive show floor, screenings, exclusive merchandise, celebrity guests, panels, autograph sessions, fan-inspired activities, costumes, and other surprises celebrating all things Star Wars! Star Wars Celebration is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience where memories are made, families are brought together, old friends are reunited, and new friendships forged — all in the setting of the ever-evolving Star Wars universe.


In a recent article on the official Star Wars website, about the five reasons to visit the event, there was a little note confirming that there won’t be an event in 2024 and that it will will be returning in 2025.

(And if you can’t join us this year, with the next Star Wars Celebration not taking place until 2025, you’ll have plenty of time to work on your cosplay, refine your Wookiee roar, and sharpen your lightsaber skills.)

The event began in 1999, when Lucasfilm held the Star Wars Celebration in Denver, Colorado, to celebrate the upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Since then, it has held fifteen events, in many locations around the world, including in Chicago (US), Orlando (US), Anaheim (US), London (UK), Chiba (Japan) and Essen (Germany).

It’s not the first time that Star Wars Celebration has skipped a year; it has been done so many times before. Unfortunately, no location for the 2025 event has yet been announced, but hopefully, this will be made during the London event in April.

With no major new film from Star Wars set to arrive in 2024, as currently, the next scheduled Star Wars film isn’t due to arrive until Christmas 2025, plus a slowdown in the number of Disney+ series, it might make sense for Disney to skip a year, so they can focus on giving fans more information at a potential D23 Expo in 2024.

In the mean time, at the London event in April, we should expect to see plenty of news about the upcoming Disney+ shows, “The Mandalorian”, “Young Jedi Adventures”, “Visions”, “Ahsoka”, and beyond.  And hopefully, some announcements about other upcoming unknown projects.
