A month from now, a major fan event for the epic space opera franchise “Star Wars” will happen in Chicago. Fans are looking forward to “Star Wars Celebration” because a major Lucasfilm panel there might possibly finally reveal the subtitle for this December’s “Episode IX.” A teaser’s also a possibility.
On a less epic but still-related scale, there’s also going to be a panel featuring the creative teams behind the animated “LEGO Star Wars” productions: “LEGO Stars Wars All-Stars” and “The Freemaker Adventures.” This is also significant since this is the 20th Star Wars Celebration event, synching with the 20th Anniversary launch of LEGO Star Wars line which came out in the same year as “Episode I – The Phantom Menace.”
Bill Motz and Bob Roth, the executive producers behind the two animated LEGO Star Wars series above, will lead the panel for the same at University Stage during Star Wars Celebration. Also joining them at the table will be LEGO producer Jason Cosler and Lucasfilm Senior Creative Executive Leland Chee.
The LEGO Star Wars animation panel is described by host Steve Dunk (from TheForce.net) as going to be “a fun-filled look back at what made [‘Freemaker Adventures’ and ‘All-Stars’] so special and why fans of all-ages love LEGO Star Wars.”
Star Wars Celebration Chicago will take place from April 11 to 15. The LEGO Star Wars animation panel is on Saturday, April 13 at 11:45 AM local time. “The Freemaker Adventures” and “LEGO Star Wars All-Stars” aired on Disney XD.
