Filmmaker J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy will take part in a “Star Wars: Episode IX” panel at this year’s Star Wars Celebration convention in Chicago.
The panel will take place on Friday, April 12th on the Celebration Stage. It’s hoped the film’s title and first trailer will be released online during or immediately after the panel so now we have a date. A specific time however has not yet been set.
The event, celebrating its 20th anniversary, will take place from April 11-15th 2019 at McCormick Place. Other guests attending the convention include Donald Faison, Sam Witwer, Jason Isaacs, Temuera Morrison, Peter Mayhew, Joonas Suotamo and Greg Grunberg.
