    I definitely want a movie or series that gives us Jedi and acrobatic action ala the prequels.

    Good for Newsom. And the UFC should be renamed the Ultimate Fools Club after this. Ba dum tish!

    It's for the best: even if they still do it online (and I think they will as people slowly recover from the pandemic) they'll have to wait till next year at the very least.

    People come first.

    Definitely for the best. I couldn't imagine them being able to even get the talent to go to an event like that for at least a year. Seriously. Imagine being told "Hi yes, this weekend you're going to take photos in close proximity to four thousand fans from all over the world, please be friendly and accommodating to everyone."

    It'd be a potential death sentence for someone like Mark Hamill. Just... take some time off. Come back when it's time.

    Doing it online is essentially releasing trailers and interviews on YouTube.

    "... and now I am personally thrilled to bring out the legend himself... Anthony Daniels. As soon as he can get his webcam working. We'll get back to him. Here's a YouTube video."

    As we sit alone, waving our plastic lightsaber in the air, exhaling a breathless "Yay" comparable to the rejoicing in Monty Python's Holy Grail.

    I think we would have gotten high republic news and a Mando season 2 trailer.

    Comic-Con have announced they’re doing a virtual convention this year. We can probably expect something similar with Celebration.

    An online Celebration could still be really fun. I just can't imagine they'd be able to do half the fan activities that make an in-person con so much fun. No autographs, photos, etc, and seating for panels would be incredibly difficult given cdc guidelines. They won't announce the cancellation until their forced to for insurance reasons, but I just don't see it going ahead at this point.

    Celebration for me has always been reading the Forum and Twitter posts by people raving about going to a panel, then looking at YouTube to see terrible illegal phone videos before they are taken down, then watching the official trailer.

    I wonder if we will get anything on the new films at all. With Taika's Thor coming in 2022 and his SW movie arriving not earlier than 2024, it does not look likely we are going to get any details this year.

    Yeah, so a "virtual" con wouldn't actually be that great a change for me. In fact, it would be an improvement.

    I mean they already live stream basically all the panels on YouTube doing it over zoom or whatever isn’t going to change much.

    Since I hate in-person cons, this is a dream. I can go to Celebration without interacting with swarms of people! Perfect.

    I am of the two minds of liking Celebration in person because I want to see friends, and being OK with their postponing because I have no intention of getting on an airplane until there is a vaccine. I may be more paranoid than the average person about catching anything that affects my lungs. And airplanes are germ tubes in the best of times.

    So...disappointed but I hope there are some virtual panels.

    This is what made the first year of Disney taking over so much fun! They live streamed a lot of those panels and the You-tuber's and Pod-caster's between panels. That was FUN for me, and I am guessing a lot of other people that don't get to go to Celebration in person.

    I would love it if they streamed panels, and specials.
