Jedi, Wookiees and Ewoks, Oh My!Once again, the power of the Force and the magic of Disney combine in May and June for Star Wars Weekends, a sci-fi fan-fest inspired by the popular film saga. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 20-June 12, 2011, Disney’s Hollywood Studios becomes the galaxy’s home for out-of-this-world characters including Sith, Bith, droids, bounty hunters, Twi’leks and Rodians.
Dates are May 20-22, May 27-29, June 3-5 and June 10-12. This year, guests blast into the universe of Star Wars like never before in a new attraction — in 3-D! “Star Tours — The Adventures Continue” takes Jedi from Tatooine to Coruscant and beyond. With several possible missions, you never know where the Force may take you.
There will be Star Wars characters roaming the streets of Disney’s Hollywood Studios for meet-and-greets and photo opportunities. Also featured: the chance to purchase special- and limited-edition Star Wars memorabilia, Star Wars trivia contests, Jedi Training Academy, Star Wars parades and the popular “Hyperspace Hoopla” dance party.
There’ll also be celebrities from the Star Wars films and creative geniuses who helped create the saga on hand each weekend for star conversations and autograph sessions. Already announced:
- Anthony Daniels, known worldwide for his portrayal of everyone’s favorite protocol droid, C-3PO, will return this year for Weekend 1 (May 20-22) and Weekend 2 (May 27-29).
- Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” will appear each weekend as Celebrity Host of a behind-the-scenes talk show entitled “Clone Wars: Behind the Force.”
Event activities are included in theme park admission.
