The hosts of Star Wars Celebration Europe in 2016 will all return to their positions for 2017's convention, StarWars.com announced Wednesday morning. The 2017 show is Star Wars Celebration Orlando, hitting April 13-16, 2017 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
Warwick Davis is one of only two actors, along with Anthony Daniels, who has appeared in all three Star Wars trilogies and also in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Davis made his Star Wars debut as the lovable young Ewok, Wicket in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, and has since played a "W"-named character in movies like Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Rogue One. The actor will host the Celebration Stage (the main stage of the program), which will undoubtedly feature a major panel for Star Wars: Episode VIII and likely some other future Star Wars films.
David Collins has been in the Star Wars family for years, working for LucasArts in audio, writing, and performance, and moving into voice-over work in Star Wars series and films. Collins has hosted the Digital Stage at Star Wars Celebration for five shows in a row, and won't end his streak next year, continuing on. In previous years, the Digital Stage has been used for inside looks with ILM, special panels featuring cast and crew of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, and peeks at Star Wars video games. Both Rebels and the games world should have plenty of news next year (though the latter may wind up on the Celebration stage, as it did at Europe 2016).
Amy Ratcliffe has written and talked about Star Wars for StarWars.com, Star Wars Insider magazine, and a host of websites, as well as the podcasts Full of Sith and Lattes with Leia. Coming off a successful hosting gig at Celebration Europe, she'll host the Behind-the-Scenes Stage again, full of making-of conversations across all mediums.
