I will admit that I never saw this one coming. The next Star Wars Celebration has been moved forward. The new dates are May 26-29, 2022. It was supposed to be held August 18-21 of next year. The convention that will cover all things Star Wars will still take place at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Moving the convention forward is a very good sign. Star Wars Celebration brings tens of thousands of fans under one roof. It was supposed to take place last summer, but obviously that didn’t happen.
What confused me with the original dates was the timing. The next D23 Expo is scheduled to take place at the Anaheim Convention Center September 9-11, 2022. That meant that people like me who hope to attend both would have been spending a lot of time in California! Of course that wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, but it would be expensive.
There is no word on when tickets for Star Wars Celebration will go on sale. Many people held onto their tickets from the convention that didn’t take place last summer, and those tickets will still be honored. Anyone with tickets that they can’t use can request a refund.
There is sure to be much more information released in the coming weeks. I’ll keep you posted.
