Fans of Star Wars from across the galaxy can now be part of the franchise’s biggest annual convention without risking in-person humiliation at the hands of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Star Wars Celebration, the enormous fan gathering in Anaheim that runs April 16-19, will be live-streamed on StarWars.com. More than 30 hours of video content will be streamed live, including the panel discussion featuring The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy. 

Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Ian McDiarmid are just some of the Star Wars actors who are expected to participate in the more than a dozen discussions during the four-day event, which will also include new details about the new Battlefront video game as well as the Star Wars Fan Film Awards.

The live-stream begins at 1 p.m. ET on April 16 and will include exclusive access until 6:30 p.m. on April 19. Highlights and on-demand video clips will be made available @VerizonWireless and Verizon’s Facebook page.
