How to watch Star Wars Celebration panels this weekend

New, 1 comment

There are a couple of methods this year

Star Wars Celebration is finally getting ready to kickoff and one of the biggest questions fans not able to attend may have is how to watch some of the most important panels.

This year, Lucasfilm and Disney are streaming the entire weekend — including the majority of its panels — on two sites. Star Wars fans can either spend their weekend camped out on YouTube watching coverage from the official Star Wars show and being given access to the biggest panels or they can head over to the official Star Wars site.

The only difference between the two is that watching the livestream on Star Wars’ site makes it a little easier to have the schedule up at the same time. Other than that, it comes down to preference. There will be coverage all weekend from official Lucasfilm and Disney shows, which includes a stream of the entire panel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

If the trailer for The Last Jedi does drop this weekend — and there’s no reason it shouldn’t — we may not actually see it on stream. Instead, you may have to circle back to the videos page on Star Wars’ YouTube account. Polygon will of course also have it the minute it goes live.

Star Wars Celebration kicks off today and runs through April 16.
