While it’s very very safe to assume that all of the major players from a galaxy far far away will be at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago this April, the guest announcements are still super exciting!

The two big announcement highlights start with the man who has brought some new agility and spirit to everyone’s favorite Wookie. Joonas Suotamo will be heading to Chicago to meet fans and (hopefully) chat about how he’s approached taking over the walking carpet we all know as Chewbacca!

We also know who will (again) be taking over hosting duties from the Celebration Stage…Warwick Davis! Warwick was amazing at the Orlando event in 2017. If you’d like a taste of Wicket’s panel hosting skills, you can catch him with Ray Park (Darth Maul) from 2017’s Star Wars Celebration on the Chasing Geekdom YouTube channel.

We’re less than 3 months away from the Chicago event! I can’t wait to see more of the guest announcements roll in!
