The STAR WARS equivalent of Woodstock- CELEBRATION- is back for another gargantuan four-day experience, starting from tomorrow at Anaheim, California, and surely highlighted by an all-new, eagerly-anticipated teaser trailer/preview for THE FORCE AWAKENS, alongside a talk with Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams that will kick things off in grand pop culture history-making style, enhanced by key special guests appearances and an attractive exhibition of props and costumes from the December-can't-come-soon-enough release. Plus so much more, across all the movies, animated series and other media to keep fans equally surprised, delighted and thoroughly entertained whilst parting with their merchandise buying savings...
Not able to go this year? Don't worry, those thoughtful people at STARWARS.COM have a splendid answer to that problem. From tomorrow, with the kind symbiosis of VERIZON, it'll be live-streaming the four-day show's key talks, including that THE FORCE AWAKENS launcher, starting from 6pm UK time.
