Hunting for special galactic bounty? Look no further than Star Wars Weekends 2010! Since the beginning of Star Wars Weekends, Disney Theme Park Merchandise has created out-of-this universe merchandise to commemorate the event. Every year we feature new and unique art that is created especially just for the event. Some of the merchandise can only be found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends. Once the last weekend of Star Wars Weekends comes to a close, so does the specialty logo merchandise.
I had the opportunity to chat with this year’s product developer for Star Wars Weekends, Robert LaFlamme, to find out where he got his inspiration for this year’s art logo.
“Creating this year’s logo art was easy. With ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ celebrating its 30th Anniversary, it made sense to feature one of the most infamous stars from the film, Boba Fett.” said Robert. “Boba Fett is the ‘most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy’ – it seemed only right to incorporate Boba Fett into the art to pay homage to such a recognized and notable character from the original Star Wars trilogy.” This is the first year that Boba Fett has been incorporated into the event art. “In the past, we have tried to find unique ways to bring Boba Fett into the art for the event. When the opportunity presented itself to use the bounty hunter, I jumped at it.” explained Robert.

One thought on “Star Wars Weekends 2010 Galactic Bounty”
I would like to know why the Disney blog does not give us the name(s) of the artists who create these wonderful pieces of artwork for the Disney fans to enjoy?
We always seem to hear about the “product developers” and not the people who create the illustrations. Is this not the vision of the artists too?
