Entry banner to the London ExCeL Centre for STAR WARS CELEBRATION 2016. 

"Will any Skywalkers, Han Solos and Princess Leias alighting this train please make sure that they take their lightsabers with them. Thank you."

And so said a droll and very British Docklands Light Railway transport officer, as fans from across the world gathered for the latest CELEBRATION pilgrimage in London. As AFICIONADO prepares its continued coverage from the lively and ultimately very well organised three-day event, which truly had something for every generation of fan, here's a selection of Scott Weller's photos captured from some of its best panels and areas of interest.
