Star Wars Celebration will be skipping 2024

The event will skip 2024 entirely before returning in 2025

As if there weren’t enough reasons to look forward to April’s Star Wars Celebration Europe, Lucasfilm has offered one more: it’ll be the last SWC event until 2025.

The news that Celebration will not take place in 2024 was revealed on the official Star Wars website Tuesday morning, in a post looking forward to the April event in London. (Note: Star Wars Celebration is organized for Lucasfilm by ReedPop, which owns Popverse.)

That the event is skipping a 2024 event might not come as a surprise to long time fans; Star Wars Celebration has never officially been an annual event. Although this year’s Celebration Europe comes 11 months after 2022’s Anaheim event, the previous SWC was in 2019, and before that, 2017. The lack of Star Wars Celebration in 2024 does free up both attention and dollars for Disney and Star Wars fans looking to attend the next D23 Expo, which is scheduled to take place at some point that year, following its bi-annual schedule and skipping 2023. Whether this means that Star Wars Celebration and D23 Expo will settle into a new schedule of alternating years is unclear at this point.

The upcoming London event has a packed guest-list of attendees, including Hayden Christensen, Mads Mikkelsen, Anthony Daniels, The Mandalorian’s Katee Sackhoff, and many more. The event — which is sold out of 4-day passes for adults, although single-day passes remain available after additional tickets were released last month — will take place at ExCel London April 7-10.

Popverse will, of course, be in London for the entire weekend, bringing the latest news and best experiences from Star Wars Celebration to you.
