Hayden Christensen has been announced as one of the guests at Star Wars Celebration to attend the 40th Anniversary Panel. This will mark Hayden's first appearance at Celebration in fifteen years. His last appearance was also his first in 2002.

Hayden is known to Star Wars fans for playing Anakin Skywalker as he ascends to the dark side to become Darth Vader in prequel films, Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002) and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005).

And here's the official announcement from

On Thursday, April 13, Star Wars Celebration Orlando will feature " 40 Years of Star Wars," a special panel gathering Star Wars creators and stars from across the saga's history. Although many galactic-sized surprises are still being saved for the event, Lucasfilm is excited to announce some new panelists that are among the biggest names in Star Wars.

Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker), star of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, returns to Celebration for the first time since 2002. Christensen will also meet fans and sign autographs at the show.

He joins an impressive list of Star Wars greats at the panel, including: Kathleen Kennedy (Lucasfilm president), Dave Filoni (executive producer, Star Wars Rebels), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Ian McDiarmid (the Emperor/Darth Sidious), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian).

His appearance at such conventions is somewhat of a rarity. It comes at no surprise then that Hayden's autograph and photo ops sessions were sold out in record time.

Star Wars Celebration takes place April 13-16 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fl.
