For the first time, Star Wars will be featured at the D23 Expo this year.

Darth Vader: The Evolution of a Villain showcases the development of the iconic villain from early concepts to striking realization.

Crash Course in the Force: Star Wars Saga 101 presented by Lucasfilm’s resident authority Pablo Hidalgo, will give a thorough grounding in all matters of the Force and the Star Wars legacy.

It will be interesting to see how much fresh Star Wars information will be presented at the D23 Expo and how much information will be rehashed.  The Crash Course won’t be new in terms of content, of course, but will it be presented in a new and interesting manner to make it exciting and accessible for a new generation?

No information yet on whether there will be material on the new “Disney” Star Wars films.
