Back in March, the full schedule for Star Wars celebration was unveiled, revealing that the opening kick-off panel on Thursday, April 16 at 10 AM PT will feature Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy and "special guests." Since then, there have been several reports that the first full-length trailer will debut during this panel, and we also reported earlier this week that the entire panel will stream live online on StarWars.com. Now that the big day is here, we have the live stream for you right here, so you can watch all of the events in this one-hour panel unfold live from the Anaheim Convention Center.
There have also been reports that the first full-length trailer will debut in theaters attached to prints of Avengers: Age of Ultron, arriving in theaters May 1, but that has not been confirmed at this time. Fans have been eagerly awaiting any new footage since the brief 88-second teaser took the Internet by storm back in late November. It isn't known what exactly will be shown in the full trailer, but there have been rumors that some of the original Star Wars cast members such as Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) may make their first appearances in this trailer.
John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow lead a new cast of characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which hits theaters nationwide December 18.
