The final day of Star Wars Celebration is underway in London. After lots of news from a galaxy far, far away over the past few days, there are only a few panels left on Monday's schedule. Today, we're focused on the animated shows The Bad Batch and Visions. 

So far at Celebration, there has been so much announced. We learned that more Tales of the Jedi episodes are on the way, Vernestra Rwoh is making her entry into live action, and that Lars Mikkelsen will be playing Grand Admiral Thrawn in live action. On Sunday, we also got to hear from the cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi about their favorite moments and if they'll come back for more episodes.

These follow the huge announcements on Friday at the official Lucasfilm Studio Showcase. We learned we were getting three new feature films, including the major revelation that Daisy Ridley is back as Rey. We also got some exclusive first looks at major new Disney Plus series, including The Acolyte, Skeleton Crew, and Ahsoka. If that wasn't enough, we also got some exciting insight into Andor season 2, as well as taking a look back at how the first season was made.

While it's unlikely you'll be able to watch from home (more on that below), it's worth knowing when you should be around for all the excitement. Otherwise you might sense a disturbance in the Force and then get a serious case of FOMO. And no one wants that.

So, below, we've laid out the main Star Wars Celebration 2023 schedule, including what time each major panel starts in both US and UK time zones. Plus, be sure to catch up on all the upcoming Star Wars movies in development and relive the Skywalker Saga with our guide on how to watch Star Wars in order.

Can I watch Star Wars Celebration panels?

Yes and no. It's unlikely that the major headline panels (see: the majority of those listed above) will be streaming. However, some panels will be available on the Star Wars YouTube channel during the event.

Of course, the place to be is social media: Star Wars' Twitter page will have all the latest. GamesRadar+ and Total Film will also be on the ground, providing the latest updates from Star Wars Celebration via social media and on-site. If you don't want to miss out, stick with us. 

The Mandalorian is currently streaming Wednesdays on Disney Plus. For more on the show, check out where The Mandalorian sits on the Star Wars timeline and our full The Mandalorian season 3 release schedule.
