Star Wars Celebration announces return to Orlando on Star Wars Day

Happy Star Wars Day, May the Fourth Be With You or whatever you want to call it. While you scroll through bad puns about Star Wars and dust off your replica Poe Dameron/Finn love-jacket for a party or whatever, note that Star Wars Celebration, the largest convention for all things Star Wars, announced this morning that it's returning to the Orange County Convention Center April 13-16, 2017. This will mark the third time that Celebration has taken place in Orlando, making it the most popular location (ahead of London and L.A./Anaheim's two iterations a piece), and will be the first Celebration hosted in the U.S. since the release of giant commercial success Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 25, at 3 p.m., which is awfully soon for an event a long, long time in the future, but we have no doubt that fans will be all over them faster than a mynock on a fresh power cable.
