Star Wars: 'Big' 40th Anniversary Announcement Coming Tomorrow

Star Wars Celebration 2017

Star Wars fans will want to tune into Good Morning America on ABC tomorrow, as the program will feature a major announcement in honor of the franchise's 40th anniversary. Many moviegoers are looking ahead to this week's Star Wars Celebration, which includes the first trailer for The Last Jedi. The convention kicks off on Thursday, April 13 with the Star Wars 40th Anniversary panel that sees a variety of faces (including maligned prequel star Hayden Christensen) from the different eras come together on stage and reflect on what has helped the galaxy far, far away endure for four decades. It's the perfect lead-in for what should be a memorable weekend.

But apparently, the festivities are going to get started a little earlier than originally expected. Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm, the studio has taken advantage of that partnership to promote their upcoming Star Wars films. Viewers may recall that ESPN's Monday Night Football was the site of the final trailer unveiling for The Force Awakens, and last year, Good Morning America debuted a preview for Rogue One. Now, with Star Wars's big 4-0 fast approaching, there's something new in store.

Good Morning America took to Twitter to tease a "big announcement" that's "40 years in the making." Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley will be together on the show to share it with the world, only adding to the hype and anticipation:
