Reedpop Events who produces Star Wars Celebration among other pop culture conventions has released a statement regarding the next Star Wars Celebration. The next celebration will take place in 2019, not 2018.
We've had a SW Celebration yearly since 2015. Next Year's SW Celebration would have taken place in Anaheim, CA. This is a little odd as well considering that we usually get the next show's announcement during the current SW Celebration. This news dropped 34 days before SW Celebration 2017 in Orlando.
Reedpop Events statement
"While we might be in the thick of getting ready for Star Wars Celebration Orlando, it's never too early to start thinking about when the next Celebration will be.
Celebration is the official, definitive Star Wars event, with entertainment, interactive experiences and exclusives that can only be found at this Lucasfilm production. They are the ultimate community fan gathering as well, and friends will want to start planning to be together again to commemorate everyone's favorite saga. The next official Celebration is slated for a location and date soon-to-be announced, in 2019.
Stay tuned to www.starwarscelebration.com for the latest news on Celebration Orlando programming, and for news on the next Celebration!
With this news it does appear that we will be getting Star Wars Celebration in 2019 to coincide with the release of Episode IX and the opening of Star Wars Lands at both US Disney Parks. I believe now more than ever that SW Celebration will take place at Star Wars Land.
