The Star Wars Celebration Orlando event is going to be huge. It will have a lot of past and present Star Wars actors and crew members.

The newest person joining the event is none other than Hayden Christensen. People may remember him most as the actor who played Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels.

The official Star Wars website made the announcement earlier today. Not only will Hayden Christensen be at the event to sign autographs, he will also be a part of the 40th Anniversary panel.

He will host the panel with his on-screen "son" Mark Hamill. You can read the announcement below.

Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker), star of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, returns to Celebration for the first time since 2002. Christensen will also meet fans and sign autographs at the show.

Some of the other names at the panel include: Kathleen Kennedy, Dave Filoni, Mark Hamill, Ian McDiarmid, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Billy Dee Williams.

The panel is to celebrate 40 years of Star Wars goodness. This includes everything from the original trilogy, Rebels, the prequels and the current movies.

This special panel is happening on April 13th starting at 11:00 AM until 12:30 PM at the Star Wars Galaxy stage.

If you cannot be there, there is likely to be online videos posted later in the day for you to see what happens at the panel.

Aside from celebrating the old stuff, the first trailer from Star Wars: The Last Jedi is expected to be shown during the event.

EA is also debuting footage from its Star Wars Battlefront II video game. Star Wars Celebration Orlando is happening at the Orange County Convention Center from April 13th until April 16th.
