Star Wars Celebration Orlando kicked off with an epic tribute for the Star Wars’ 40th Anniversary at Galaxy stage that was hosted by Warwick Davis (Return of the Jedi, Willow) and featured Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and discussions with some of the saga’s brightest stars, highlighting the impact of the galaxy far, far away and the fandom that has propelled it for the last four decades.

Among the panel’s guests were Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissan), Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Rebels Executive Producer Dave Filoni.

The panel’s finale was an emotional tribute to Carrie Fisher with remarks from her daughter Billie Lourd, who had a small role in The Force Awakens  and a surprise appearance by legendary composer John Williams, who conducted the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra while they played “Leia’s Theme.”

Here are some photos that Lucasfilm has provided from sevent.
