Celebrity host, actor Warwick Davis, will bring a really big show to the stage in the Grugahalle every day of Star Wars Celebration Europe, and we have created some ways for you to be a part of the action. From tweeting questions to special #Ask hashtags to providing photographs for the Celebration Closing Ceremonies, you can be part of what makes Celebration Europe memorable for all.
Each show on the Celebration Stage starts with entertainment that kicks off before the main events begin. Those who arrive early can get their groove on with entertainers DJ Elliot and Mark Daniel. I’ve enjoyed these two at past Celebrations, and they make it worth getting seated early. Rumor has it that Elliot just might have a Lobot costume packed along with him, too.
The unbelievable R2-D2 Builders, in addition to panels, a huge building area, a droid parade and droid exhibition area, have created a smart-talking sidekick droid — R4-CE2 — especially for Warwick on the Celebration Stage. Builders Bernd Pentrop and Daniel Sczuklik built not only one R4-CE2, but an additional backup, too! Running R2-CE2 for the shows will be Pentrop and Sczudlik with help from Droid Builder leaders Oliver Steeples and Arnd Riedel. R4-CE2 will have a lot to say about what Warwick does on stage.
Warwick will welcome the biggest stars of Celebration to his stage each day of the show, and from the meetings we’ve been having over the phone, it sounds like he’s got pure entertainment planned in addition to interaction with the audience. I wish I had time to sit through every show! Here’s how you can get involved: starting now and throughout the weekend, post your questions for consideration via a special Q&A hashtag created especially for each show.
#AskTheArtists – Doug Chiang and Iain McCaig
#AskC3PO – Anthony Daniels
#AskPalpatine – Ian McDiarmid
#AskKathy – Kathleen Kennedy
#AskFiloni – Dave Filoni and Rebels

#AskJabba – Tim Rose, Mike Edmonds, Femi Taylor, Toby Philpott, Gerald Home, Sean Crawford, and Tim Dry

After you’ve asked some questions, upload your photographs and memories to hashtag #StarWarsCelebration. The best photographs will be copied from this hashtag and made part of the Celebration Closing Ceremonies, where fans can relive some of their favorite moments of the show, see some things they missed, and maybe see themselves or your photographs up on the big screen!
Remember — be part of the show at #StarWarsCelebration and send your favorite memories! And tweet your questions for your favorite celebrities on the Celebration Stage.
