16 Apr – Living on the wrong side of the world from where the biggest "Star Wars" fan convention is about to take place this weekend is not fun. But, if you have a fast and stable internet connection, this year's your chance to (sort of) take part.
According to an update on StarWars.com, "Star Wars" Celebration Anaheim 2015 will be live-streamed worldwide on the website itself.
The live-stream of the four-day event, taking place from 16 to 19 April at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, can be watched on StarWars.com as well as Verizon.
Both will also be live streaming the Star Wars Fan Film Awards, the Smuggler's Bounty radio drama, EA's new Battlefront videogame, and several exclusive Celebration events.
30-plus hours will be delivered during the stream, which will be launched with the highly-anticipated kickoff panel featuring "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy.
There will also be discussion with the likes of actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Ian McDiarmid, and more. The official "Star Wars" website will be live-streaming interviews with celebrity guests between the live, onstage events.
The live interviews will be done within the "Star Wars" Cantina set, built especially to reflect the atmosphere of Mos Eisley's watering hole from 1977's "A New Hope".
Also, word has it that the new trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" may be revealed during the fan convention. That's definitely reason enough for fans to keep their eyes glued on the first ever "Star Wars" fan convention live-stream.
"Star Wars" fans in Southeast Asia can catch the live-stream when it starts at 12am tonight on StarWars.com
