ReedPOP is Launching an Online ‘Star Wars’ Convention on May 4-5


Conventions are being cancelled right and left over the Coronavirus pandemic. We already saw SDCC get cancelled and many wonder if Star Wars Celebration, scheduled for August 27-30, could get cancelled due to the California Stage guidelines. Now the organizers of Star Wars Celebration, ReedPOP are going ot hold a virtual Star Wars convention.

This event will take place on May 4th and May 5th. It’s being called An Online Revelry: May the 4th Be With You for the 4th and Online Revelry: Revenge of the 5th for the 5th.

According to the Hollywood Reporter fans can expect a lot of virtual events:

The two-day An Online Revelry: May the 4th Be With You and Revenge of the 5th celebration features multiple virtual events, including live-tweeting movies and episodes of both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, as well as Q&A sessions and discussions with writers and voice actors associated with the franchise. (A full schedule can be seen in the two graphics below.)

Additionally, fans will be able to take part in trivia quizzes and prize giveaways across the May 4-5 period, with ReedPop encouraging usage of the hashtags #Maythe4th and #Revengeofthe5th for those participating. Events will take place across social media accounts associated with multiple ReedPop properties, including New York Comic Con, C2E2, BookCon, Emerald City Comic Con and Florida SuperCon, on both Twitter and Facebook.

At least this way you don’t have to pay for expensive event tickets!

Here’s a list of the virtual events coming:
