How to enjoy Star Wars Celebration at home
As a UK-based Star Wars fan, attending the event at ExCeL London in 2016 was an out of this world experience and I'm truly excited for all who get to experience the return of Star Wars Celebration after its hiatus.
But, if you're too busy going into Toshi Station to pick up some power converters, live in a galaxy far, far away, or you're simply unable to attend this year's Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, there are still many fun ways to enjoy the event at home and from around the globe. You can tune in to Star Wars Celebration LIVE! from 12:30pm (PT) onwards via the official Star Wars website and on YouTube to enjoy watching select panels, celebrities on the LIVE! stage and more.
You can also immerse yourself into the Star Wars universe at home by watching your favourite Star Wars movies and shows via Disney+, be it the original trilogy, the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series featuring Ewan McGregor or your favorite episodes of The Mandalorian featuring Pedro Pascal. Disney+ Originals are only available to watch via the magical streaming service and a $79.99 annual/ $7.99 monthly subscription means you can experience Star Wars whenever and whereever you like.
There's lots of Star Wars content to feast your eyes on here at Popverse too, like our post about the Star Wars roadmap, the best Star Wars Comics and our thoughts on the best Star Wars movies ranked from best to worst.
