This weekend’s guests include Jeremy Bulloch, David Prowse and Matt Lanter in addition to hosts Jay Laga’aia and Ashley Eckstein.
The 501st Legion reported earlier today that Star Wars actor-turned-Star Wars Weekends host Jay Laga’aia has officially joined the dark side and has enlisted as a stormtrooper (TK 6352 to be exact). In fact, Laga’aia even assumed a false identity during the application process to keep it a secret.
The 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion provide characters for the Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and its parade (all but Darth Vader I believe). No word on whether Laga’aia will be participating in the parade as a stormtrooper or himself, but I’d place most bets on the latter.
Time to start planning for Star Wars Weekends! Starting in May, fans get to meet an impressive lineup of special guests attending four weekends of Star Wars fun at the Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida. From May 22 to June 14, 2009, fans of all ages will converge to celebrate the heroes, villains, creatures and droids of the saga. In addition to Star Wars costumed characters, fun activities, and the Star Tours theme park ride, celebrity guests will be in attendance for meet-and-greet sessions, star conversations, and a classic Hollywood-style motorcade.
Here’s a look at the celebrity guests which include Star Wars cast members from the entire saga. Please check back here for future updates to the guest list as it may be subject to change.
