When Star Wars Celebration 2015 lands in Anaheim April 16-19, it will become the hottest place in the Galaxy for Star Wars fans. As things start to gear up for this event, announcements have begun to be made regarding featured guests. Today, we are pleased to announce that Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3P0), and Kenny Baker (R2-D2) will be appearing at Star Wars Celebration 2015.
Fisher will appear on stage during the event and then sign autographs in the Official Pix Autograph Hall. She is set to reprise her role of Princess Leia in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Anthony Daniels, the man behind perhaps the Galaxy’s most famous droid, will be on hand on the Celebration Stage as well and will also be meeting fans and signing autographs. Finally, the other man behind perhaps the other most famous droid, will be on hand in Autograph Hall as well.
This will be just some of many announcements that will be made leading up to Star Wars Celebration. Continue to check back to DAPs Magic for future updates. Also, keep your eyes open for the trilby and bow tie while at Star Wars Celebration as I, your humble correspondent, will be on hand to cover the events!
