Star Wars Celebration Europe
This year, Celebration, the ultimate “Star Wars” fan experience takes place in Messe Essen, Germany, July 26-28, when thousands of Jedis, Siths, and Rebel spies will congregate over their love for a galaxy far, far away. Guests at this year’s convention include Carrie Fisher, who portrayed Princess Leia Organa in the original trilogy (and rumored to be returning for the forthcoming film in 2015).
The three-day event boasts costume workshops, behind-the-scenes insights from those who helped create the films, and special sneak peeks at what’s next in the “Star Wars” universe. This is the second time Celebration has taken place in Europe. It has also been held in Tokyo, Orlando, Denver, Indianapolis, and London.
