Star Wars Celebration VII is going to be held in Anaheim, California from April 16-19, 2015. Tickets go on sale August 7, 2013 at 7:00 AM Pacific!  That’s right, tickets for the event will go on sale almost 2 years in advance.   Lucasfilm Events Lead Mary Franklin made the announcement at the Closing Ceremonies of Celebration Europe II in Essen, Germany.

The announcement was also released on the official Star Wars twitter;

The last two Celebrations have taken place in Florida, so it could have been the left coast’s turn, but more than likely this is Disney’s decision.  This will allow the event to take place closer to Los Angeles where a lot of the post production work will take place.  Anaheim is also ground zero for Disney, and the Anaheim Convention Center is larger than the one in Florida.

Since I live 10 minutes from the convention center this is great news for me, but I will miss going away for Celebration.  I went to Celebration 1-4 in Denver, Indianapolis x2, and Los Angeles.  Celebration 3 was my favorite, I got hypothermia waiting in line, in the snow overnight to see George Lucas.  Randy also dislocated his shoulder on the same trip.  Fun times!

What do you think?  Who’s going to be in Anaheim, and going to this great event?  If you’re a Star Wars fan, there is nothing like Star Wars Celebration.  It’s by far my favorite convention to attend.
