Easter isn't the biggest thing happening this weekend for Star Wars fans.

Star Wars Celebration is taking place from Thursday, April 13 through to Sunday, April 16 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, featuring a whole host of panels.

Most importantly, it looks like the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be unveiled during the film's panel on Friday at 11am ET (4pm UK time), hosted by Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson.

Alongside the trailer, we can expect to learn a lot more about the film with the help of a lot of special guests.

But if you're not in Florida, fear not. Star Wars Celebration will be streamed live on Star Wars' official website and YouTube, but expect the trailer and other footage to be missing until it appears officially online.

The convention kicks off on Thursday at 11am ET (4pm UK time) with 40 Years of Star Wars, a retrospective panel hosted by Warwick Davis and featuring the likes of Mark Hamill, Hayden Christensen and Anthony Daniels.

As well as the Last Jedi panel, Friday will also feature a likely heartbreaking panel with Hamill's tribute to the late Carrie Fisher from 5.30-6.30pm ET (10.30-11.30pm UK time).

Of potential interest will be The Life & Times of Han Solo on Friday from 7.30-8.30pm (12.30-1.30am Saturday UK time), a fan perspective of the loveable rogue that could – but probably won't – feature information about the young Han Solo spin-off.

Star Wars Celebration isn't just about the films though, as Saturday sees a Star Wars Rebels panel from 11am-12.30pm (4-5.30pm UK time) and a Star Wars Battlefront II panel from 2.30-3.30pm (7.30-8.30pm UK time).

The convention finishes on Sunday with a closing ceremony looking back on the event from 4-5pm ET (11am-12pm UK time).
