Star Wars Celebration 2017 Wish List


From a news perspective, last year’s Star Wars Celebration was rather lackluster, but the 2017 SW Celebration looks to be a bigger and better show. Could all of us hardcore SW fans be setting ourselves up for disappointment with all of the potential reveals we have built up in our heads? Possibly, but I have a feeling we are going to get some big news and see some very cool trailers/featurettes this year. So, without further adieu, here’s my personal wish list for this year’s event.

  1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer- I think this goes without saying.
  1. New Star Wars Stand-Alone Film Announcement(s)- There’s a chance this doesn’t happen at all, but I have a sneaking suspicion we will get news of an Obi-Wan or bounty hunter film (or both).
  1. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Video Game Reveal- Will there be a campaign? Will there be more non-DLC levels included with the disc? Will there be more offline content? So many questions that will hopefully be answered.
  1. New Star Wars Video Game- We know a new game is in development from Visceral but it remains to be seen if we will get any details on it at Celebration or even E3.
  1. Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Trailer- After the explosive season 3 finale, I can’t wait to get a glimpse of what could be the final season of Rebels. On an added note, will there be any news regarding the in development animated series?
  1. Original Films On Blu-ray- This is pure speculation and may never happen, but I’m still holding out hope that fans will be able to own the original cuts of 4, 5 and 6 on Blu-ray.
  1. New Star Wars Book Announcements- It will be hard to top last year’s surprise announcement of a “Thrawn” novel, but I think Del Rey and Lucasfilm Publishing have some big titles waiting in the wings.
  1. Star Wars Re-Release- Given that this is the 40th anniversary of the original “Star Wars,” it seems possible that fans will have the chance to see “Star Wars” on the big screen again in some form.
  1. New Marvel Comic Series- Will we get any new comic series announcements? We’ll soon find out.
  1. Smuggler’s Revenge- Not so much a wish as something I want to see/hear. As a fan of the first two live Han Solo centric audio dramas, I am eagerly awaiting the third installment that features an all-star cast of voice talent.
