Meant to promote awareness of the annual event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios amongst Cast Members, StarWars.com provides us with a look at some of the eye candy normally only seen by those who work for the Disney Empire.
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.
Debuting at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland this June, the new series of Disney Star Wars racers features Jango Fett (pictured, left), Wattoo, AT AT, Jawa and Lando as Skiff Guard designs. In addition, there is an Indiana Jones design (pictured above) which includes bumper stickers of all of Indy’s treasures. The cars will retail for $4.95 each.

According to their official websites, David Prowse’s schedule confirms he’s set to appear at Star Wars Weekends June 5-7 and Peter Mayhew has listed his appearance but not offered dates, although he is booked elsewhere June 5-7.
I apologize for the inconvenience some of you have reported in regards to downloading the free Star Wars Weekends screensaver, but I appreciate you bringing to my attention. The download ceased working when I switched to a newer version of the forum software, but I’ve gone ahead and made the edits to the code so it should be working now.
