'Rogue One' Director, Lucasfilm President to Join 'Star Wars' Europe Event
Appropriately enough for a movie about a heist to steal plans for a secret military base, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and director Gareth Edwards are up to something mysterious relating to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at this year's Star Wars Celebration Europe event.
Lucasfilm is keeping details about just what is going to happen at the Rogue One panel to itself for now, but the opening-day presentation — described by the studio as a "can't miss event" — is being teased to include unnamed special guests.
Given the appearance of the entire cast of The Force Awakens at last year's Celebration Anaheim, don't be surprised to see Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen et al show up on stage this time around.
Celebration Europe is set to run July 15-17 at the ExCel London Exhibition Center. Other guests announced for the three-day show include Mark Hamill and Warwick Davis.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to be released Dec. 16.
