Outside of a new film release, the biggest thing to happen for a Star Wars fan is happening now. That thing, is Star Wars Celebration. A semi-annual 3-day convention that, well, celebrates Star Wars. But it’s more than just haven for autographs and photo ops (and the occasional naked guy that runs through your hotel room wearing nothing but a Stormtrooper helmet. Yes, that happened to us). The event, which starts today in Orlando and runs through Sunday, is also a prime source for new footage of upcoming movies and, television series, as well other Star Wars related announcements.

Missing out on the excitement? Disney has got you covered. The house of mouse will be live-streaming the biggest panels! 

Beginning Thurs at 11:00 am EST, there will be a live-stream of select Celebration events available on StarWars.com and Star Wars Youtube. Both will run until Sunday at 5:00pm

Here is a You Tube embed video below:

The stream will feature coverage of both Thursday’s “40 Years of Star Wars” panel, which opens the convention at 11:00 a.m. and Friday’s The Last Jedi panel at 11:00 a.m. — during which it’s rumored a new trailer for the upcoming film will debut.

The first two days are packed with panels and new releases, including more information on the Forces of Destiny female-led toy and animation line on Thursday, a look into the making of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and a tribute from Mark Hamill to the late Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia Organa.
