Celebration Japan was held at the Makuhari-Messe Convention Center near Tokyo from July 19 to July 21, 2008. It was the first Celebration to be held in Japan. Its purpose was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of A New Hope, the original Star Wars film, which debuted in Japan on June 24, 1978.
On April 15, 2019, Lucasfilm announced Celebration 2020, which would have taken place once again in Anaheim, California, in 2020, but was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and rescheduled for the same location in 2022.
