Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019: Billy Dee Williams, Alan Tudyk & More Attending

Today (and every other Wednesday from now till the convention arrives) saw the release of the next round of attending guests for Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019. This latest batch includes Billy Dee Williams, Alan Tudyk, Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Gray, Anthony Forrest, John Morton, Julian Glover, and Michael Culver. Additional guests are still expected to be announced for the show, so keep checking back at the supplied link for more guest updates and their associated autograph pricing/photo op availability.

Clicking on the name of each listed guest will take you to the store website where you can see their respective autograph/photo op availability. Presales for Celebration autographs/photo-ops began back on February 13. The presales window will remain open till Monday, April 9 at 9:00pm CT.

Monday tickets for Celebration (priced at $75 each) still remain as of the time of this posting. The 5-day event, which is a first for Celebration, will be held April 11-15 at the McCormick Place convention center.

Before he reprises the role of Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: Episode IX later this year, you’ll have the chance to see actor Billy Dee Williams at Star Wars Celebration Chicago.

The original cape-wearing, smooth-talking, business man from the city in the clouds will join fans alongside Alan Tudyk, who played the wise-cracking K-2SO, the Imperial droid-turned-rebel hero in Rogue One.

During the event, you’ll also have the chance to see Kanan and Ezra reunite at a Celebration for the first time since we said goodbye to Star Wars Rebels, when Freddie Prinze Jr. and Taylor Gray make an appearance.

Other newly-announced stars include: Anthony Forrest, who donned a stormtrooper bucket on Tatooine and was “Jedi mind tricked” by Obi-Wan Kenobi; John Morton, best known as Dak, the other half of Luke Skywalker’s snowspeeder team in the Battle of Hoth; and two of the Empire’s finest officers, Julian Glover, who played General Veers, and Michael Culver, who was the ill-fated Captain Needa.
