Star Wars Weekends
The “Force” continued to run strong during week two of Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with the appearances of some special celebrities. Tom Kane (voice of Yoda, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) and Matthew Wood (Voice of General Grievous) impressed us on stage with amazing character voice work. And Lorne Peterson (Chief Model Maker, Star Wars Saga) met with fans and signed autographs. Oh, and of course, there were more amazing costumes and body art. Here’s a look at the highlights:

“Impossible to see the future is” but here’s a peek at what’s to come during Star Wars Weekends:

Weekend 3 (June 4 – 6)

  • Ray Park (“Darth Maul”)
  • Billy Dee Williams (“Lando Calrissian”)
  • Dave Filoni (Supervising Director of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”)

Weekend 4 (June 11 – 13)

  • Ray Park (“Darth Maul”)
  • Peter Mayhew (“Chewbacca”)
  • James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”)


  • I wish they had star wars weekend at CA Disneyland or even DCA. Why wasn’t star wars weekend brought to california?

  • So fun – wish I could be there!

  • I took a great shot at the Hollywood Studios entrance with a Storm Trooper and a “hidden Mickey” cloud formation in the sky. I’ve been trying all week to find the right contact to send it to and maybe someone here can help.
