Star Wars Celebration 2023: London Excel Center Tickets

The franchise’s official convention will be held April 7-10 next year at the Excel Center in town.

Here’s everything you need to know about it.

What is Star Wars Celebration?

Star Wars Celebration is an annual fan event dedicated to the Star Wars franchise.

It started in 1999 in Denver, Colorado to commemorate the upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

Celebrations were then held to celebrate the 30th and 40th anniversaries of the original film’s premiere and to welcome new films.

There have been a total of 14 celebrations since the event began. Organizers prefer to space out events so that they don’t happen every year, although there are exceptions.

This year’s event, which included special discussions, screenings and glimpses of upcoming spin-off shows, attracted thousands of fans, many in extravagant cosplay costumes.

Star Wars’ Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Pedro Pascal, Temuera Morrison and Jon Favreau were among the celebrities who gave presentations, interviews and autographs.

A special exhibit featuring props and costumes from The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett was also set up exclusively for those attending the ceremony.

A life-size spacecraft, a life-size N1 Naboo Starfighter with an animatronic Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) waving from within, was the centerpiece of the one-of-a-kind show.

A giant Bantha was accompanied by a horde of Tusken Raiders against a backdrop of their desert camp and other moving models.

The installation was unveiled on day one of the convention after a new trailer for The Mandelorian season 3 was shown.

The short clip showed the title character and Grogu reuniting and traveling to Mandalore to have “my wrongdoings forgiven” – the series will launch on Disney+ in February next year.

When is Star Wars Celebration Europe?

Officials have said the 2023 event will be held at London’s ExCel Exhibition Center for the third time and will take place in less than a year.

The London Excel Center is in the Docklands area of ​​London’s East End, but the opening of London’s Elizabeth Line now offers a direct tube connection from Heathrow Airport to Custom House station, which connects to the Center and nearby hotels and bars is connected.

This means the exhibition will be significantly more accessible to guests, dealers and visitors than the last time it was held in London.

How do I get tickets?

“Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about 2023, merch updates and more Star Wars goodies,” the event’s official website reads.

Tickets for the 2022 event went on sale just a few months before the actual festival, so expect tickets to be available from around February 2023.
