Charles Soule will also be a part of the “Wonderful World of Wookiees” panel:
WONDERFUL WORLD OF WOOKIEES
SUN, MAY 29, 2022
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
THE GALAXY STAGE
Loyal allies, gifted pilots, skilled mechanics and fierce warriors, Wookiees have come to be many things in the Star Wars galaxy. Join host Amy Ratcliffe and special guests Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca – Episodes 7, 8, 9, and Solo: A Star Wars Story), Carey Jones (Krrsantan – The Book of Boba Fett), and Charles Soule (author behind The High Republic’s Burryaga Agaburry) for a Wookiee-focused discussion that will include a tribute to the iconic Peter Mayhew.
Star Wars Celebration also saw the accidental reveal that a Tales of the Jedi animated anthology series is in development at Lucasfilm, which shares the same name as a comic book series from the ’90s, but it remains to be seen what the new animated series is specifically about.
Rumors also offer a Mandalorian MMO video game is in the works from the developer behind The Elder Scrolls, so there might be a lot of big announcements to come out of the Star Wars Celebration next month.
The convention will also feature the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, Andor, The Mandalorian, and lots more.
Star Wars Celebration takes place May 26-29, 2022 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California with guest stars including Giancarlo Esposito, Anthony Daniels, Tim Rose, Daniel Logan, Ian McDiarmid, and more.
