Panels and interviews from the three-day event in London will be streamed at StarWars.com and on YouTube, Lucasfilm has announced.

Fans disappointed at not being able to attend this month's Star Wars Celebration Europe — likely all American fans, given that the event takes place in London — have reason to celebrate, it turns out. The three-day event, which begins July 15, will be live-streamed at StarWars.com and on YouTube.

The announcement of the live stream came via Lucasfilm's weekly YouTube series The Star Wars Show, with the program promising that the three-day broadcast will include celebrity guests, interviews with Star Wars fans and creators and panels from the convention, including a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel featuring director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

More information about the live stream, including a programming schedule, will be released soon, according to Lucasfilm. Watch the Star Wars Show episode — which also includes news on Hasbro's fan vote for future Star Wars action figures and the cover reveal for Star Wars: Aftermath — Empire's End, the third in the Aftermath trilogy by author Chuck Wendig that bridges Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens — below.
