Star Wars Episode 8: Rian Johnson, Chris Miller and Phil Lord will be at Star Wars Celebration

Written by

This year's Star Wars Celebration in London will feature Star Wars: Episode 8's director Rian Johnson and Han Solo's standalone movie directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord.

Star Wars Celebration has us all very excited in the melty office. We have big hopes and dreams for the event. Will we see some footage from Star Wars: Episode 8 at the show? Will we see a new Rogue One trailer? Will Mark Hamill let something else slip? We just can't wait for this year's Star Wars Celebration which will take place in London. We now have another reason to be looking forward to the Star Wars-centric event. Rian Johnson, Chris Miller and Phil Lord will all be attending. We still haven't heard whether John Boyega, Daisy Ridley or Oscar Isaac will turn up, but it sounds like everybody involved in making the upcoming Star Wars films will be taking part and that's more than enough for us. Rian Johnson confirmed that he'll be at Star Wars Celebration on his Twitter account.

According to the Star Wars website, Star Wars Celebration will feature a panel with the main directors involved in the upcoming slate of 'wars in space' movies. Pablo Hidalgo will host a discussion panel with Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, Star Wars: Episode 8's director Rian Johnson, and Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who are helming the the untitled Han Solo movie. Rogue One's director, Gareth Edwards, will also be part of Star Wars Celebration and will most likely get us even more excited about his upcoming movie, which will be the first ever Star Wars spinoff film. Hopefully we'll get to see a little teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode 8, and maybe another trailer for Rogue One. We've also heard rumors that Ewan McGregor might turn up and announce a solo Obi Wan Kenobi movie at the event. Wouldn't that be so cool! Are you excited for Star Wars Celebration?
