While this news is disappointing, we are happy to announce that Star Wars Celebration will return to the Anaheim Convention Center on August 18-21, 2020.
Transfers and Refunds
The press release goes on to detail how you can either get a refund of transfer your 2020 tickets to the 2022 event. Thankfully fans have the option of transferring.
