Recap of Lucasfilm Publishing Panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019

Friday was one hell of a day (to say the very least) at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 with one of the main highlights being the Lucasfilm Publishing panel. The team over at provides a review from the panel in their latest Celebration update.

On the same day we got our first look at the teaser trailer for Episode IX and an official title for the film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Lucasfilm Publishing confirmed a galaxy of new stories being prepped ahead of the film’s release this December.

Lucasfilm Publishing’s Creative Director Michael Siglain announced plans for a Journey to Episode IX program similar to the books that have preceded Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

And although he was mum on other details, there were plenty of other announcements and insights during the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago.
