Want to watch Star Wars Celebration from the comfort of your home anywhere in the world? Well, you can – here’s how. This weekend, April 13-16 2017, is Lucasfilm’s official convention for that galaxy far, far away, this year taking place in Orlando, Florida. As with anything Star Wars, there’s a lot of excitement, with the long-weekend set to see the unveiling of a Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, an announcement of what to expect from Star Wars: Battlefront II, a reveal for Rebels Season 4 and potentially even more.
Tens of thousands of fans will be at the Orange County Convention Center for the event itself, but that’s not the only way to get a Celebration experience thanks to live-streams and other coverage.
The best way to actually watch Celebration is through StarWars.com or the official Star Wars YouTube channel, which will have a live stream of the convention running throughout the four-day weekend (above). Hosted by The Star Wars Show’s Andi Gutierrez and Anthony Carboni, the stream will feature all the major panels (you can check out a list of what to watch and when here) including “40 Years of Star Wars” (Thursday 11 a.m. EST) and “The Last Jedi” (Friday 11 a.m. EST). All the panels are usually made available on the Star Wars YouTube a day-or-so after the stream (as well as panels on smaller stages that don’t get a stream), so if you miss any and want to experience the full thing, keep an eye out for those.
Beyond streams, Screen Rant will be covering all the big news out of Orlando throughout the weekend with breaking stories, in-depth editorials and more Star Wars goodness. Our own Rob Keyes is going to be on the floor of the convention, so for up to the minute updates be sure to follow him on Twitter:

Celebration isn’t just about panels and news, though. There’s a host of stalls on the convention floor ranging from the usual exclusive merchandise all the way to the unveiling of props (last year saw the reveal of models from Rogue One). We’ll be sure to bring you the big details, and some manufacturers are providing their own coverage feeds, like Funko:
We’ll update any more feeds as they become available. It’s going to be a very exciting, Star Wars-packed weekend. Stick with Screen Rant for the fastest and best coverage.
