    New Hope screening on Friday night will be cool, I was kind of hoping it might be on an outside screen, in the theatre not everyone will be able to get in I would guess. Plus outside would make for a more communal atmosphere.

    Just looking at the Floor Plan - am I missing something, or is there no sign of a list of exhibitors to go with it?

    It is 9PM here and I just got this email............

    Ken,

    Today we posted more guests and several new events on www.starwarscelebration.com, and in the next couple weeks there will be many more panels and guests announced, including the autograph hall schedule. I think you'll find that the event will be wonderful for Star Wars fans every day of the show.

    We thank you for your patience, and I'm very glad you'll be coming to Celebration. I hope to run into you there!

    "Many more" I like the sound of that!
    The guest annonced today are great! Don't read this comment as a negative one, they are awesome! However they are also regulars for Celebration. Besides, everyone wants a huge autograph hall!

    Yeah I appreciate the reply, but still "the next couple of weeks"? Kinda getting down to the wire. They obviously KNOW we are starving for info, wonder what the hold up is. Maybe shooting schedule for VIII and the reshoots for Rogue One are still very fluid in nature........

    I hope and pray they invite Daisy Ridley to Celebration this year! I am just dying to meet her! haha!!! I dunno what I'd do if they don't invite her! Want to meet her so bad and get my picture with her! Just to get to talk to her would be good enough for me! Hopefully they'll add some new actors/actresses to the Star Wars franchise from Episode 7 to Celebration this year. Of course, everyone should want Daisy to come. She's friggin' awesome!!! Such a wonderful woman!

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. Some new faces would be great. Hey would you dare to ask Ridley for a hug under your photo? Or would you freeze up?

    It does say everywhere except if you hover over her face on "guests" that she'll sign. So... Guess we can assume she will do autographs and the "guest" page just got it wrong for some reason?
    If you over over Anthony it only says "autographing" too. I mean if you got Daniels, you gotta give him the stage. He's fantastic on his panels

    I think the signup for exhibitors is still open. I'd imagine they'd post a list once that list is complete.

    Breaking news:
    On the Anthony Daniels annoncement + on Carrie Fisher's "card" (if you open it when you hover over her face on guests) it does say she will sign autographs.
    However as many as noted on the hover over her face bit, it only says "panels."

    Here is what customer service said:
    "At this time, she is only scheduled for a panel appearance. Please continue to check back on our website for the finalized autographing schedule if anything has changed.

    Thank you,

    Customer Service"
    Has she ever done a Celebration without signing autographs? If this is her first time not doing so:

    Of course, I would ask her for a hug. If not, a fist bump from Daisy Ridley would be fine! I have a gut feeling they're going to announce her as a guest at the very last minute. She will be the ultimate surprise on the guest list for Celebration Europe 2016! Since she lives in London, it only makes sense for her to make an appearance this year

    Given they're still in production on two movies, I'm guessing they have to be cautious about announcing Ep 8/Rogue One cast members. But given there's a Rogue One panel, I'd be surprised if some of the cast weren't there - Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed and Mads Mikkelsen in particular.

    At this stage I'm not sure I could see Daisy or John doing photos/autographs, though it would be amazing. I just really want an Episode 8 panel with them, Mark, Rian Johnson, Adam Driver etc.

    Mikkelsen is doing London film and comic-con two weeks after Celebration. So yeah he's defintivly in the area and willing to do cons.
    + As you say it would be wierd if the Rogue One stars weren't (at least) suprise guests at the Rogue One panel. As they are filming nearby.
    Correct me if I'm wrong. Weren't the stars suprises for the TFA panel last year too?

    Yeah they all came out for the opening panel. Hoping/expecting the same thing will happen here for Rogue One.

    I have a strong hunch that their last guest announcements will be Episode 7 cast members. I know they're saving Episode 7 guests for last and that'll be the greatest announcement of them all. I know I say this on every one of my post's, but seriously hoping and praying for Daisy Ridley to be invited. I want to get my picture with her! That would be my Facebook profile picture permanently. I love Daisy so much! <3 :)
