Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019: Three Lucasfilm Animation Panels Announced

If you love what Lucasfilm has been doing in their animation department over the past several years when it comes to the topic of new Star Wars content, then this update is tailor made for you. Attendees of Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 in April will be able to experience three Lucasfilm animation panels focusing on The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and Star Wars Resistance scheduled to be held on different days throughout the duration of the convention. Check out the what, when, and where for each panel copied below!

Monday tickets for Celebration (priced at $75 each) are still available 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.

When fans first learned that Star Wars: The Clone Wars was saved during a special panel at San Diego Comic Con last summer, the room erupted in cheers and tears.

Now, nearly a year later, attendees at Star Wars Celebration Chicago will be the first to get a closer look at what’s to come for Anakin, Ahsoka, and the rest of the beloved characters from the original series when new episodes premiere exclusively on Disney+.

On Sunday, April 14, get together with Dave Filoni and special guests to celebrate the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and share an exclusive sneak peek at things to come.

But first, on Saturday, April 13, join Filoni, Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Gray for the Star Wars Rebels Remembered panel. The Ghost crew went from a single scrappy crew of rebels to a vital part of the larger cause over four seasons. Although the series is over (and there won’t be a surprise announcement of a new series during this panel), we’ll never forget the characters who deepened our knowledge of the Force, made us laugh and cry, and gave us hope.

And on Monday, April 15, it’s time to join the Resistance for a look back at the shocking season one finale and a preview of the second season of Star Wars Resistance with Executive Producers Justin Ridge, Athena Portillo, Brandon Auman, and members of the cast including Christopher Sean, Suzie McGrath, Scott Lawrence, Myrna Velasco, and Donald Faison.
