At this point, it looks like any major event has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. However, it looks like the 2020 Star Wars Celebration might still be pushing through. Interestingly, a new statement addresses whether the event will be delayed or cancelled in the future.

The official Star Wars Celebration website has issued a statement for ticket holders amidst the COVID-19 lockdowns.

"We are in contact with the city of Anaheim, the Anaheim Visitors Bureau, and the Anaheim Convention Center. We are committed to ensuring that our event plans meet or exceed the latest public health guidance, including that of local and state authorities as well as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
"This is a very dynamic situation, with a rapidly changing landscape. While the opening day of Celebration is still four months away, we are actively assessing the most up to date information and following all directions from federal, state and local public health authorities regarding large public gatherings in the state of California. In the event that we postpone or cancel Star Wars Celebration we will offer all fans the option to either transfer their tickets to the new event dates or receive a full refund of their ticket order."

For now, Star Wars Celebration is still expected to push through in August. However, the event's status could be updated in the next few months. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

Star Wars Celebration is still scheduled to take place August 27 to 30 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
