Star Wars fans have two dates circled on their 2015 calendar. Of course, there’s December 18, when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters. Then there’s April 16, when Star Wars Celebration comes to Anaheim, CA.

Celebration is basically Comic-Con but only for Star Wars stuff, with plenty of vendors, panels and opportunities for fans to talk to and engage with the people who make Star Wars, Star Wars. This year, everyone assumes there will be some huge revelations and presentations about The Force Awakens. That remains unconfirmed, but Lucasfilm wants to remind fans the event is coming and released a super cool poster to do so.
