Back in London for the second time, the third Celebration Europe, while a smaller affair than its North American counterparts, still had a great deal to offer. Along with the excitement surrounding the release of Rogue One at the end of the year, the convention also provided fans with the chance to see the season three premiere of Star Wars Rebels, hear directly from the directors of not one, not two, but three future Star Wars movies, and also experience Lucasfilm's VR experience. With a much stripped-down crew this time, here are the galleries from the exhibitors and panels that the Rebelscum team were able to cover.
