Every Star Wars fan with a ticket to Celebration 2019 has been waiting to see if and when the Episode IX panel was going to be announced. Well today is the day for the announcement, but we didn’t get all of the info we were looking for.

We know that the Episode IX panel will happen on Friday, April 12th on the Celebration Stage, but we do not know what time it will happen nor what can be expected from the panel. This info came out via the official Celebration email list and from a tweet from the Star Wars Celebration Twitter account.

JJ Abrams will definitely be in attendance, but no other cast members or guests have been announced yet.

Other news from this email included a new batch of Star Wars stars that will be attending the convention. These new guests include Forest Whitaker (Saw Gurrera), Hugh Quarshie (Captain Panaka), and Katee Sackhoff (Bo-Katan).

We also got an announcement of the 3rd pin set for Celebration goers.
