June 15, 2016 – Star Wars Celebration Europe today announced some additional big-name guests who will be attending the London convention.
The Celebration website lists the following nine as “Spotlight Guests” (whatever that means). We assume that most, if not all, of them will be available at some point in the Autograph Hall to meet with fans and sign autographs:
With Star Wars Celebration Europe scheduled to open in less than 30 days, additional guests are expected to be announced in the coming days and weeks. The number of celebrity guests available for meet-and-greets in the Autograph Hall is typically at least triple the number announced so far.
In addition to the “Spotlight Guests”, three hosts have been announced for the main stage: Warwick Davis, David Collins, and Amy Ratcliffe.
The floor plan (4 pages) is now available as well, which you can view by clicking below or download here: SWC-Floor-Plan
Will any of the new stars from The Force Awakens be in attendance? With rumors circulating that Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn) or Oscar Isaacson (Poe Dameron) might be spotted at Celebration Europe, nothing is confirmed yet. Stay tuned for further announcements in the days and weeks ahead as additional guests are announced.
The first six panels of the Star Wars Collecting Track (seminars) have been announced. They include:
● The Effect and Influence of the Palitoy Company on Star Wars Toys
● Star Wars Original Props and Costumes
● One-of-a-Kind Star Wars Collectibles
● Star Wars LEGO
● Vintage Star Wars Coins
● Food Premiums from France – 3 Decades of Eating with Star Wars
Expect many more panels to be announced in the weeks ahead. For attendees at the Collector Track panels, here are the Celebration Europe 2016 Collector Track Medallions that will be given away – one free collectible medallion unique to each panel:
The pewter medallions are 2″ (5cm) and are baked with colored enamel. Each medallion shows a detailed view of a vintage Kenner Star Wars toy. They make great companion pieces to your vintage Star Wars vehicles or as a complement to the Star Tots and Celebration Medallion giveaways of the past. Best of luck collecting all 12!
As space is limited at each panel presentation, you will want to line up early to ensure a seat.
Previous Celebrations panels have provided lucky attendees with limited edition collectible coins, medallions, Star Tots metallic figurines, and even single-serving Star Wars cereal boxes.
