    the biggest reveal will more likely be on Saturday when the largest audience is present.
    most conventions use Friday for secondary teasers (things like the animated shows maybe).
    Saturday will be for the huge IX news and anything startlingly new.

    the weird thing about this convention is that they are rolling over into Monday, which means they will likely have additional announcements on Sunday as well.
    Monday will not be any big news as most people will be there on the weekend and that's the audience they will target with the splashiest info.

    But that's not how they've worked things in the past. TFA was on Thursday (1st day), Rogue One was on Friday (1st day), 40th was on Thursday (1st day) with TLJ on Friday (2nd day).

    Not saying things can't/won't change. After all, we've no idea how making Thursday a preview day and adding Monday will affect things. The biggest panel has, traditionally, always been on opening day. Plus Celebration is pretty much sold out (barring Monday), so Friday/Saturday should have the same number of people attending.

    it's entirely possible they will run a different show, but the Monday spillover may have implications. seems unlikely they will put out big news on that last day.
    people who bought full weekend passes also may not actually attend Friday and Monday all-day due to work schedules, travel, etc. so even though those tickets are technically sold, it's likely that attendance will ebb and flow or could be lower before and after the weekend.
    you could be right about Friday? i'm just basing my predictions on SDCC and other similar events.

    With a new movie, multiple new series, Disney+, and new theme parks, this Celebration should be one of the most impactful. Wish I could make it to Chicago, but I will have to miss it. I'll be glued to the live streams though. May the Force be with everyone who is going.

    Detailed information about how the lines will work at Celebration.

    @KeithF1138 Thanks so much for this schedule, I have looked everywhere and knew someone on the Cantina would be all over it.....question....do they normally record the panels/etc so they can be viewable later?
