Today, Lucasfilm kicked off Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Flordia and while the Celebration is always an exciting to-do, the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope gave the event just that extra bit of shine. In honor of the anniversary, the panel brought out a team of Star Wars powerhouses, both the stars of the franchise and the behind-the-scenes creatives that turned the Star Wars into the international powerhouse we know and love.

Warwick Davis hosted the kickoff event for Star Wars Celebration 2017, and brought out a slew of important and notable Star Wars personalities: George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, Dave Filoni, Ian McDiarmid, Hayden Christensen, Billy Dee Williams, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Billie Lourd and John Williams were all there in person, with Liam Neeson and Samuel L. Jackson making appearances via video message. Check out more than 45 images from the event below.
