Star Wars Celebration: Watch the live stream from the Anaheim fan convention

Posted in: Fans,Movies

This weekend’s Star Wars Celebration is the place to be for fans of all things related to the galaxy far, far away and a long, long time ago, but you don’t have to go to the Anaheim Convention Center to get an inside look at the fan expo.

The convention, which kicked off Thursday morning with a presentation from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy, is being live-streamed for the enjoyment of “Star Wars” fans across the globe.

So far, key moments at Star Wars Celebration include the unveiling of the first full-length trailer for “The Force Awakens”; a Q&A with “Star Wars” cast members, including newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac as well as veterans Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew; and a look at the film’s new droid, an adorable roller-ball robot called BB8.

For months, the studio has been carefully managing the marketing rollout of the new “Star Wars” film, which will bring together stars from the original trilogy with a new generation of actors, some of whom weren’t even born when those films were released.

Further stoking the buzz for “Episode VII,” the six previous “Star Wars” films were recently released for the first time on streaming services, such as iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

Lucasfilm mounted the first Star Wars Celebration in Denver in 1999, just three weeks before the release of “The Phantom Menace,” and has held eight of them since then in the U.S., Europe and Japan.

Watch a replay of the presentation’s live stream in the video above.
