For those wondering the exact times of all the biggest panels of Star Wars Celebration 2023, this is the perfect place to find all that information in one location.

Last year's Celebration took place in Anaheim, California at the end of May. The event featured the first footage from The Mandalorian and Ahsoka, gave audiences a full trailer for The Bad Batch's second season, announced Tales of the Jedi, and more. 

This year's event, which is taking place in London, England, promises to be even more spectacular.

At the very least, fans should expect footage from Ahsoka, some intel on The Mandalorian's last couple of episodes, confirmation of a new movie (or two), and perhaps a first look at the highly anticipated High Republic live-action show, The Acolyte.

What Announcements to Expect at Star Wars

Lucasfilm, and Star Wars as a whole, has never had this insane amount of new content to announce and share with fans all at once. Hopefully, fans won't be disappointed.

The studio does occasionally host disappointing presentations (just look at what they had for D23). Still, hopefully, this year's Celebration will manage to blow expectations out of the water.

At the very least, there's a lot of expectation and pressure for the studio to finally announce a new film in the franchise. After all, there hasn't been a single one since 2019's The Rise of Skywalker.

The journey regarding a new Star Wars movie has been tumultuous at best. While Damon Lindelof's pitch seemed to be the one furthest along in development, the writer himself was actually recently taken off the project, which doesn't exactly scream confidence.

As for Star Wars' current offerings, The Mandalorian is now streaming on Disney+, while Ahsoka is expected to air on the platform by the end of the year.
