The list of reasons to attend Star Wars Celebration Europe just keeps getting longer, now with a list stars from the Star Wars saga who will be appearing on stage and meeting fans in the autograph hall.

Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian, The The Empire Strikes Back & Return of the Jedi) is set to appear at Celebration Europe, the huge fan festival that is scheduled for July 13-15 at London’s ExCeL center. Star Wars fans might know him best as Lando, but Williams’ acting career has been busy, long, and varied with starring film roles that include Louis McKay in Lady Sings the Blues, Gayle Sayers in Brian’s Song, Harvey Dent in Batman. In September he is traveling to Alabama to shoot a new project called Constellation. Williams will appear in a cameo in the upcoming Star Wars-themed comedy, Fanboys.

Celebration Europe looks to provide the biggest selection of Star Wars stars at a single European convention to date. This is just a start of a long list of celebrities, whose careers span the entire 30 years of the saga. Stars will be signing autographs and appearing on stage and/or in meet and greet sessions.

Not only will guests be available for autographs and greeting fans in the Celebration Europe Autograph Hall, many will also appear on stage for Q&A sessions, and some could chat with members of the Official Star Wars Fan Club during exclusive “Meet & Greet” sessions in the Fan Club Lounge.
