Hey “Star Wars” fans! You know this year’s fan convention, Celebration V, is in Florida at the Orange County Convention Center, right? Here’s something you didn’t know though: Mark Hamill is going to be in attendance. That’s right, Luke Skywalker himself. Lucasfilm exclusively confirmed to MTV that the celebrated actor will be on hand to meet fans and sign autographs. He’ll also put in an appearance on the Celebration Stage. None of the specific scheduling has been announced just yet, but the convention runs from August 12 to August 15, so count on all of this happening sometime during that timeframe. This is in addition to the already announced Jon Stewart interview with George Lucas, not to mention all of the other “Star Wars” fan-fulfilling craziness that’s planned.
Although he previously appeared at Celebration Europe and Celebration Japan, Celebration V marks Hamill’s first appearance at one of the U.S.-based conventions. Hopefully things will go better for him than they did when he appeared at BiMonSciFiCon on “The Simpsons.” Tickets are still available, so head over to the Celebration website to get yours now.
