RIAN JOHNSON, director of Star Wars: Episode VIII, will join Han Solo Star Wars Story directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord at a three day Star Wars fan event in London.

Taking place at ExCel London Exhibition Centre between July 15 and 17, 2016, Star Wars Celebration Europe will also see appearances from Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, regular stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, as well as Gareth Edwards, director of spin-off movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The trio of directors will join Lucasfilm president Kennedy, SVP Development Kiri Hart and Star Wars Story Group executive Pablo Hidalgo for a Future Filmmakers Panel on the Sunday.

Billed, tantalisingly, as “an informal conversation”, the panel was teased by host Peter Townley as potentially containing “a glimpse of what the future of the Star Wars galaxy holds”.

The news was revealed during the weekly Star Wars Show YouTube series.
