    Probably gonna be very similar to what they did with TFA last year. So if not a trailer at least a second teaser

    Carrie Fisher has been announced.

    But if you hover the mouse pointer over her picture on the web site, you will see that she is listed only for "Panels", not "Panels and autographing" like Mark Hamill.

    What are the chances that Daisy Ridley gets invited and added to "Panels & Autographing" like Mark Hamill! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!! My heart will explode with happiness if she;s invited and get a chance to meet her! Would love to shake her hand!

    Very good! Since she lives in the UK, London area, I wouldn't think it'd be too much trouble for her to come. She is the new face of the Star Wars franchise after all. I think for this year's Guest List, they MUST invite fresh faces from the Episode 7 film. Inviting Daisy would of course be an excellent choice! So many diehard Star Wars fans want to meet her, me included of course! :)

    Little disappointed if Carrie Fisher isn't autographing as I was really hoping to do photo ops with her and Mark Hamill. Still excited as her panel was so funny to watch in the live stream last year so I'll definitely be trying to get in to see her live!

    I'm guessing a lot of the legacy cast and new stars depend on the VIII shooting schedule, that might be why Carrie is (at the moment at least) panels only and we've not had as many announcements as we should have so far. Keeping my fingers crossed we can get at 1 panel with the new stars even if they can't all be there for signings. I know the big focus will be Rogue One but I'm still holding out hope that we'll get a little something from Episode VIII. Too early for a teaser trailer but maybe first images of the cast in (new) costumes or something like that.

    I argree with everything you just said! Yeah, Rogue One had a precense at the last celebration so Ep 8 will probably have something, albeit not much.

    Author Jason Fry has posted over in his Lit thread that he will be at CE. He hopes to be doing some signings but no details so far.

    Yeah totally!
    I mean they still haven't posted the Celebration Europe "OFFICAL" art on their OFFICAL celebration page or facebook. And the recently annonced Dave Filoni is also not on their official stuff

    Filoni was actually annonced earlier today. Celebration was realtivly late with that one.
    As we are in the mood for complaining. As I said earlier today. Celebration's official pages just plain SUCK on updates lately. They are late on everything and some annoncements they don't even have on their pages! You have to go to other sites like starwars.com to find it

    The quality of web site layout, navigation and ... ads on the site do not instil much confidence either. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought that it was a fake site - one of those that copy another site's content for quick ad revenue.

    Maybe Lucasfilm should drop ReedPOP and consider other organizers for future Celebrations.

    There's no excuse for the app not being up to date, but I guarantee we'll get a flurry of announcements in the final weeks before the event.

    Can't believe it's been over a year since I bought tickets. And I can't believe I actually forked out for the pins last week. Star Wars makes you do weird things - especially considering there's very few guests, nor any information on how best to collect autographs at the event. Nor any information on Photo Ops. It's June now, how much longer can they realistically make us wait?
