Lucasfilm has put out the official list of Star Wars themed panels for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but I wouldn’t get too excited if you’re going to be at the show.

The revealed panels are pretty basic at best, and none of them cover any of the Disney+ shows, or The Rise of Skywalker. Outside of the Lucasfilm Pavilion, which will house a new Stormtrooper exhibit featuring the new Sith Trooper, it doesn’t appear that any Star Wars event or panel will touch on projects that haven’t release yet.

The panel list is mostly full of the lesser panels from Celebration, and for third party retailers. There’s a chance you may get some good insights into one of the new projects if fans can ask questions, but most of the panels listed below seem pretty light on new content.
