We are thrilled to report that the upcoming Disney+ streaming service Star Wars spinoff series The Mandalorian is heading to Star Wars Celebration in Chicago for a panel!

From Star Wars.com:

Learn about the perilous world of The Mandalorian with Jon Favreau (executive producer and writer) and Dave Filoni (executive producer and director) in a special panel discussion on Sunday, April 14, at 11 a.m., live on the Celebration Stage and presented simultaneously at the Galaxy and Twin Suns Stages.

The Mandalorian, set to debut on Disney+, stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) in the title role as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter, alongside Gina Carano (Deadpool), Carl Weathers (Predator), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Warrior).

Also this week- a bit of upheaval about the changes to previous practices at Celebration, which include new rules for lines, queuing, badge activation, and the panel lottery. You can read about those here.

Star Wars Celebration Chicago will take place April 11-15 at McCormick Place.
