Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022 Is Coming 3 Months Sooner

Maybe Star Wars Celebration Anaheim will have weather less like Tatooine and more like Endor with these new dates.


With vaccines rolling out across the country, in-person gatherings are finding calendar dates again. Star Wars fans can look forward to their next event even sooner than planned, as Lucasfilm has moved the next Star Wars Celebration date up by three months, from August 2022 to May 2022.

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim was initially scheduled for August 18-21, 2022. Instead, Lucasfilm announced today that the event will run from May 26-29, 2022.

"These new dates will provide fans with more incredible offerings to enjoy at Star Wars Celebration," the organizers wrote in the official announcement.

Star Wars Celebration is the one-stop shop for Star Wars announcements. Celebration 2019 revealed the title of Episode IX, The Rise of Skywalker, along with a trailer for the film. The event also featured the first event-only Mandalorian footage, along with character reveals for the show, and tons of Clone Wars reveals. Gamers, meanwhile, got an early look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Disney has a big batch of Star Wars movies and shows planned. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron and Taika Waititi's untitled project are headed to the big screen. For television, Disney has announced shows for Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, Cassian Andor, Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett, and more. While the Book of Boba Fett is releasing this year, many of these projects are further out, and we can likely look forward to reveals for some of them come next May.

According to the official announcement, fans who want to keep their tickets don't have to do anything. If those new dates don't work, though, you can request a refund through the Star Wars Celebration website.
