The ceaselessly expanding list of celebs appearing at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando is growing more appetizing with every day that passes, but the recent addition of a tribute to Princess Leah hosted by Mark Hamill might be difficult to top.

The man we all know and love as Luke Skywalker will host what is sure to be a powerful and heart-wrenching memorial on Friday, April 14, for his on-screen sibling, Carrie Fisher.

Another panel called "Hamill Himself" will happen Sunday, April 16, and will consist of an hourlong question-and-answer session with the audience.

With a guest list already stacked with the likes of Bohdi Rook, Anthony Daniels, Felicity Jones and too many others to mention, the April 13-16 convention is shaping up to be unmissable.

Tickets can still be purchased and start at $65 for adults.
