Rey in the force awakens ending

I’m headed to London for Star Wars Celebration 2016, which runs from July 15th to July 17th 2016 at the ExCeL London Exhibition Centre. Some big Star Wars announcements and reveals are expected to come out of the weekend, and we’ll be covering it live from the U.K. So stay tuned for our coverage beginning Friday and going throughout the weekend.

When Disney Animation Studios announced they were making a big announcement a couple weeks back, I listed a few possible predictions and was able to nail it exactly: Wreck-It Ralph 2 was announced, pushing back Gigantic which still needs some work. And this weekend Finding Dory overtook Captain America: Civil War to become the highest grossing film of the summer so far, nailing my #1 spot prediction for this year’s Summer Movie Wager. So while I’m on a roll, I thought I’d try to guess what we might discover from Star Wars Celebration 2016.

Rowling‘s two-part West End stage play is currently in preview performances at the Palace Theatre in London, England. The grand opening happens at the end of the month, which coincides with the release of the script book. Touted as the eighth official installment in the Harry Potter series, the story is set 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and follows an older Harry Potter, now a Ministry of Magic employee, and his younger son Albus Severus Potter.
