The force is clearly with the annual Star Wars Celebration, now that Bodhi Rook and C-3PO have been added to their already impressive lineup of guests.

Rogue One's Riz Ahmed and Star Wars legend Anthony Daniels will be in attendance at this year's convention, which spans April 13-16, at the Orange County Convention Center.

The star-studded weekend will also host Ian McDiarmid (Darth Sidious), Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso from Rogue One), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Rian Johnson (Director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Kathleen Kennedy (President of Lucasfilm) and more.

Beyond ogling at celebrities, writers and leaders of the Lucas Empire, a vast lineup of events will is also on deck.

Rancho Obi-Wan, the California-based Star Wars Museum and holder of Earth's largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia, will be celebrating their 40-year anniversary at Celebration. They will be displaying parts of their collection from both the new films and the older ones in their 900-square-foot space.

Tickets can still be purchased for $70 (4-day pass) and those attending are encouraged to download The Official Star Wars Celebration Mobile App, which has show floor layouts, and schedule updates.
