Get the celebration started by visiting

Next month, Star Wars fans from across the globe will be heading to Germany to converge for Star Wars Celebration Europe in Essen. Always at one with the force, we’ve teamed up with Disney and Lucasfilm for an amazing prize draw that will see one lucky Forbidden Planet blog reader win a return flight, accommodation, spending money and tickets for themselves and a friend to attend all three days of the festival on July 26, 27 and 28th!

With a list of confirmed guests so far including Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Ian McDiarmid (Darth Sidious), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), Kathleen Kennedy (President of Lucasfilm) and many, many more; attendees can expect three force-filled days of panels, signings, fan-activities and all things Star Wars. The most recent Star Wars Celebration saw 30,000 fans descend on Orlando, so fans can expect an amazing party atmosphere with like-minded Jedi/Sith in Essen.
