More Star Wars celebrity guests have just been announced for Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019. If you have ever wanted to meet Billy Dee Williams, Alan Tudyk, Taylor Gray, Anthony Forrest, John Morton, Michael Culver or Julian Glover, then now is the time. Even more guest celebrities will be announced in the coming weeks.
You can secure your opportunity for an autograph/photo op now via the official Star Wars Celebration website. Presales for Celebration autographs/photo-ops started back on February 13. You can snag these opportunities until Monday, April 9 at 9:00pm CT, in which the pre-sale will end.
Before he reprises the role of Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: Episode IX later this year, you’ll have the chance to see actor Billy Dee Williams at Star Wars Celebration Chicago.
The original cape-wearing, smooth-talking, business man from the city in the clouds will join fans alongside Alan Tudyk, who played the wise-cracking K-2SO, the Imperial droid-turned-rebel hero in Rogue One.
During the event, you’ll also have the chance to see Kanan and Ezra reunite at a Celebration for the first time since we said goodbye to Star Wars Rebels, when Freddie Prinze Jr. and Taylor Gray make an appearance.
Other newly-announced stars include: Anthony Forrest, who donned a stormtrooper bucket on Tatooine and was “Jedi mind tricked” by Obi-Wan Kenobi; John Morton, best known as Dak, the other half of Luke Skywalker’s snowspeeder team in the Battle of Hoth; and two of the Empire’s finest officers, Julian Glover, who played General Veers, and Michael Culver, who was the ill-fated Captain Needa.
