Disney Is Holding Auditions For Star Wars Stormtroopers

With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening next week at Disneyland, there’s a new open casting call for performers to fill a very important role – Stormtroopers.

Disney is looking for performers to bring to life some of the most exciting characters in the Star Wars saga.  Stormtroopers are needed to appear before thousands of guests each day, performing in meet-and-greets, as well as creating magical moments for guests.

If you’re looking to join the Dark Side, you must be between 5’10” and 6’0”, with a slender/athletic build.  (I guess Mark Hamill IS a little short for a Stormtrooper.). Actors must have high energy levels and a full range of movement and improvisational skills.

I can’t imagine it’s easy to get around in those full body uniforms!

We learned earlier this month that Stormtroopers may be used to usher guests who try to out-stay their 4-hour time limit.  I’m sure that they’ll have a big role to play when the “Rise of the Resistance” attraction opens in Galaxy’s Edge at a later date.

Casting directors will be on hand on Friday, May 24th in Downey, California for applicants looking to audition.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Opens May 31st at Disneyland!

Cast members working in Black Spire Outpost on opening day were photographed in their uniforms this week as well.  No Stormtroopers in these photos, but that doesn’t mean they won’t turn up in some unexpected places!

  2. I’m too short to be a stormtrooper. I love how they’ll be ushering people out. I would be one who would get ushered out haha! #DisneyVacayGiveaway

  3. This is such an amazing opportunity for someone who’s a huge Star Wars fans! I love the idea of the Stormtroopers ushering guests out of Star Wars Galaxy Edge if they stay past their 4-hour allotted time. It really makes the experience more authentic. You get to visit Galaxy Edge & get ‘chased’ by a Stormtrooper? Cool! LOL #DisneyVacayGiveaway
