Star Wars Celebration Sold Out of 4-Day Tickets Within Hours

Star Wars Celebration 2020 tickets went on sale this morning, but they didn't last for long.

Next year's convention, which will take place in Anaheim, CA, launched ticket sales at noon ET/9 am PT. Two hours later, both 4-day tickets and the VIP-level Jedi Master Packages completely sold out. According to Star Wars Celebration's Twitter account, Saturday day passes sold out within four hours. Other daily passes are still available.

If you missed tickets for the event, don't panic just yet. Last year, ReedPOP -- which runs Star Wars Celebration -- introduced a system called Lyte. Lyte enabled con-goers who could no longer attend to sell their tickets back, in turn making more tickets available for purchase at a later date. It is unclear if ReedPOP will continue this practice for Star Wars Celebration 2020, but this seems likely.

2020's Star Wars Celebration takes place the same year as the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back. It is unclear how the convention aims to mark the occasion. Notably, Star Wars Celebration takes place once every two years, but 2020's convention is an exception, immediately following the 2019 Celebration. This may be an effort to include the Empire Strikes Back anniversary in the events, but no official announcements have been made.

Star Wars Celebration will take place in Anaheim, CA from August 27-30, 2020.
