New guests for the upcoming fan convention Star Wars Celebration, set to take place in Anaheim, California, from May 26-29, have been revealed.
Giancarlo Esposito, who plays the villainous Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian, will be appearing at his first ever Celebration. Esposito is also famous for his iconic role in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. Joining Esposito is Omid Abtahi, aka Moff Gideon’s employee Doctor Pershing in the Jon Favreau created series. This will also be the first Celebration for Abtahi.
Joining these two is the Wookiee himself, Joonas Suotamo, who played Chewbacca in the sequel trilogy as well as Solo: A Star Wars Story. Suotamo is not the only Wookiee who will appear, as Black Krrsantan actor Carey Jones is also set to appear. Jones played Krrsantan in The Book of Boba Fett, now streaming exclusively on Disney+.
Daniel Logan also comes to Celebration, a fitting return for the actor after his character, Boba Fett, got his own solo show earlier this year. Logan is credited in two episodes of The Book of Boba Fett, once again reprising the young version of the role that he played in Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars.
The High Republic authors Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel José Older, Cavan Scott, and Charles Soule were also announced to be attending.
Jett Lucas (Zett Jukassa, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith), Margo Apostolos (Ewok Tokkat, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi), Orli Shoshan (Shaak Ti, Star Wars prequels), Kevin Thomspon (Ewok Chubbray, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi), and Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar puppeteer) are also confirmed to appear.
Last week, Ian McDiarmid, Anthony Daniels, and Ashley Eckstein were part of the first slew of guests confirmed to attend the event.
