We need a minute after the reminder that Star Wars: The Phantom Menace turns 20 this year, but, it does, and Star Wars Celebration in Chicago is marking the occasion with an anniversary panel.
The two new guests announced this morning for Star Wars Celebration in Chicago are the original smooth-talkin-cape-wearin Lando Calrissian actor Billie Dee Williams, and perhaps the most sassy droid of them all, Rogue One's K-2S0 actor Alan Tudyk.
We've also learned The Emperor himself will attend- Ian McDiarmid, as well as BOTH Chewbacca actors Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo. Sam Witer, Greg Grunberg, Greg Proops, Dave Chapman, Ian McElhinney, Orli Shoshan, and Paul Kasey. Star Wars: Rebels voice actors Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Gray, Jason Isaacs, and Vanessa Marshall will also be on hand, as well as Star Wars Resistance's Donald Faison.
There was also the reveal of who you can stop by and see in Artist Alley: Malcom Tween, Darren Tan, Jason Christman, Zoltan Simon, Joey Spiotto, Brian Miller, Matt Busch, Chris Trevas, Karen Hallion, Adrianna Vanderstelt, Danny Haas, Jason Palmer, Spencer Brinkerhoff, Kaela Croft, Brandon Kenney, Russel Walks, Dianne Harrop, Kayla Woodside, Alex Buechel, Cryssy Cheung, Steve Anderson, Brian DeGuire, Chris Dee, Michael Pasquale, Cat Staggs, Jerry Vanderstelt, and Brian Rood.
