Star Wars Celebration, the convention completely dedicated to all things in a galaxy far, far away, is one of the biggest and best ways to appreciate the toys, droids, and characters of Star Wars. And now we know when it's all going down.

As announced today on The Star Wars Show, next year's 2019 Star Wars Celebration will launch into hyperdrive from April 11-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago. And the Celebration will continue the tradition with a little boost from Solo: A Star Wars Story and The Last Jedi.

The official Star Wars Twitter account explained in a video, which you can watch below:

Basically, The Star Wars Show explained that the Celebration’s 20th anniversary will be held at the same place C2E2 was this year. Alas, no details on panels or speakers have been solidified yet.

The show then goes on to document the Solo red carpet behind-the-scenes (including the building of various stages and the set-up of cameras) before delivering a few snippets of Chewbacca, director Ron Howard, and the human cast members. Plus, plenty of fans doing their best Wookiee howl. Then there's a brief tour through the Millennium Falcon, but only enough of a tease to whet fans' appetite for a full film experience inside the ship -- you'll just have to wait till May 25, when Solo opens wide.

As far as Star Wars Celebration 2019, according to the official site, tickets will go on sale at noon CST on June 5.
