    Well, now we officially have our dates! August 27th-30th 2020! One of my favorite things to do at celebration is meet my favorite actors and crew members of the multitude of films, tv shows, games, etc. So let's get this started! Who are your TOP FIVE "I really hope they're there" people for celebration 2020?

    For me, in no order:

    -Emilia Clarke
    -Mark Hamill
    -Pedro Pascal
    -Cameron Monaghan
    -Daisy Ridley

    I'd shell out easily to meet any of the above! Of course I'd also be excited to meet with people I've already met before, like Hayden Christensen, as well! How about you?

    Honestly I hope my "must meets" stay away as autographs/photo ops would likely break my budget. But I'd find it almost impossible to resist;

    John Boyega (he just seems like an awesome guy)
    Harrison Ford (WAY out of my price range but I'd seriously consider it anyway)
    Ewan McGregor (same)
    Double photo with Ray Park and Emilia Clarke
    Group photo with Pedro, Gina, and Carl

    Yeah, I can't afford that [face_laugh]

    Realistically I expect the ST (maybe not Adam Driver) and Mandalorian cast to be there as this will be the first time they can sign at Celebration.

    I spent a lot of time at the Star Wars Show Live stage in Chicago and saw most everyone I would be interested in seeing there (although, obviously, I didn't really meet them). I plan on probably breaking out and trying more panels and stuff in Anaheim, though, so I might try to pick up a signing or photo if someone really appeals to me.

    Not sure who I would go for, though.

    I didn't list people like Ford or Mcgregor cause I know I wouldn't be able to afford them! Lol. This year will be a LOT lighter as far as getting basically anything.

    We were the opposite! Planned to spend time at the Live Stage but ended up seeing way more panels than we expected. Hopefully get to the Live Stage more next year.

    I’m going to be so pissed if Emilia goes and I’m not there

    I just assume there's a room like this in your house for Hayden.

    There would be if I wasn’t married. Unfortunately I have to keep it under control

    Emilia is probably my number one. There's so many things I'd want her to sign!

    I'm guessing the main draws will be the ST actors, since they haven't signed before. Emilia would probably depend on how her post-GOT career will take off.

    There's going to be a lot of pressure on Hamill to attend Anaheim.

    I could see Ford attending and doing a tribute to Peter Mayhew alongside Mark, and maybe George. That would certainly be something. But I doubt Ford or George would do any signings.

    I think his days of signing at cons are over. Maybe he shows up for a panel.

    Yeah, it’s looking more and more like that NYCC was his last after all.

    There's no way Hamill skips the empire panel. Signing... yeah that's a different story.

    If Harrison Ford and George showed up, they would probably say "hi" and "bye" on the stage. then Harrison would charge a fortune to sign or just sign for VIPs! or not at all. George-no sign, just, "hey, you see and hear me,"but no sign. but.... there could be a miracle!

    Yeah, I can't see either signing. It will be like at the 40th - main panel, Live Stage, then leave. And I'd be more than happy with that.

    Or... you can be like the very luck people who accidenty run into Harrison or George as they are coming out of a restaurant or other business, timing in those cases is tricky and that is the best way to see or meet them!

    I heard that at previous Celebrations people would stalk all the entry and exit ways to hotels George might be staying at to ensure they see him.

    Yes! this happened at Cele. 3 in Indianapolis, this went on in the Marriott hotel, I was staying there too, I heard he and his staff had taken up the 17th floor. I was waiting in line in the rain, wind, snow flurries and tornado alarms in front of the hotel! we were looking up to the floor they were at, they could see us below. That was my first camping out and I do not regret it! What a time to be a fan!

    Yeah, no. They are people too, no need to stalk them...

    When I heard about fans staking the hotel out, I wondered if that was risky! that was the first time George had attended a convention, that was probably why fans were so over excited, they would do that! When we got out of the elements and into the back of the convention center, our group was located by a set of unlocked doors that led the guests into the con. center. we were part of the much larger group and just happened to get parked(on the floor and against some walls by those doors) why they were unlocked? don't know, but someone in the group ,who knew the building,said George and his group would be coming down that hall in the morning for the panel. most fell asleep in the group, but one person would wake up and check the door! at 7:30 that morning, someone came in and yelled, "Everybody up", we checked the door, it was locked! and all of us,who waited so long overnight, were the last to get in the panel room! ugh.

    It would be great to see Ewan McGregor, especially if Disney+ goes for any Obi-Wan related medium.

    I'm guessing the Empire 40th anniversary panel will open the convention and I absolutely think Hamill will show up. Doubt he'll do anything else though.
