Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker to Appear at Celebration
When you can hide stolen Death Star plans, talk back to Grand Moff Tarkin, and win the heart of Han Solo, you’re kind of a big deal. So, StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that the sharp-shooting princess of a galaxy far, far away — Carrie Fisher — will return to Star Wars Celebration!
The legendary actress and author, who will reprise her role of Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will appear on stage and sign autographs in the Official Pix Autograph Hall (learn more about Official Pix below). Fisher’s participation leads a slate of exciting new announcements for Star Wars Celebration, April 16-19 in Anaheim, California — including the attendance droids you’re definitely looking for.
Anthony Daniels, who has portrayed C-3PO in all seven Star Wars movies, as well as the Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels animated series, will meet fans, sign autographs, and appear on the Celebration stage. Kenny Baker, who played R2-D2 in the original trilogy, will also appear in the Autograph Hall. Whether they are carrying stolen Death Star plans is unconfirmed at this time. But StarWars.com can confirm that even more attendees and events are coming to Star Wars Celebration.
