swcelebrationvLucasfilm has chosen the Orange County Convention Center as the official site for Star Wars Celebration V in August 2010. Tickets go on sale Dec. 10, 2009.

Star Wars Celebration is the official Lucasfilm event celebrating all things Star Wars and it is produced by fans for fans. They are the largest Star Wars parties, featuring cast and crew celebrities, fans, costumes, music, live entertainment, autographs, collectibles, and panels — but primarily friends who gather to have fun and celebrate their love for the saga.

The first Celebration took place in 1999, and this fifth Celebration will honor the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back.
