For those that still care about Star Wars, the 2020 edition of the Star Wars Celebration has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event was scheduled to run from August 27 through 30 in the Anaheim Convention Center.
It has been noted that it will come back to the same location August 18 to 21 2022. There will not be an event for 2021 either.
Fans who purchased tickets can receive a refund or have their tickets transferred to the next Star Wars Celebration, which is set to take place in Anaheim Aug. 18-21, 2022. The refund date opens June 22 and must be completed by Aug. 26. Hotels booked through Star Wars Celebration’s portal will automatically be canceled.
There will be an opportunity to purchase merchandise that is exclusive to this show and will be available online in the “not so distant future”.
Finally, here is one more attempt for them to keep your money:
As a token of our appreciation and to say thanks to all Star Wars Celebration 2020 fans who choose to transfer their tickets to the 2022 show, we are excited to offer a free exclusive Star Wars Celebration stormtrooper character pin! This limited-edition collector’s pin is only available to fans who opt to transfer their current 2020 tickets to the new 2022 event dates, and will not be offered anywhere else!
This exclusive stormtrooper pin is the first of over 50 unique Star Wars Celebration pins that will be revealed soon. Fans will receive one (1) stormtrooper pin for each 2020 ticket within their order that is transferred to the new 2022 event dates. If you opt to transfer your tickets to 2022 in lieu of requesting a refund, the pin will be automatically shipped to you before the end of the year, and no further action is required.
So far, there is no word on the fate of the D23 show scheduled for 2021.
Was anyone planning to go this year?
