• Star Wars Weekends 2011 Dates Announced

      The Official Disney Parks Blog updates with the dates for Star Wars Weekends 2011 that will be held at Disney's Hollywood Studios every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 20-June 12.

      The event features one of the galaxy’s largest gatherings of Star Wars characters all around the theme park, offering photo and autograph opportunities. There are special Star Wars parades, trivia challenges, Jedi Training Academy, limited-edition merchandise and memorabilia, behind-the-scenes presentations, star conversations and more.


      Star Wars celebrities make special appearances in talk shows and grand motorcades, and sign autographs throughout the weekend (here’s a tip: make sure you’re at the theme park first-thing in the morning to secure a spot in one of the celebrity autograph queues for that day).

      Disney will announce a complete and more detailed Star Wars Weekends celebrity lineup soon, but they have can tell you now about two fan-favorites returning for 2011.

      • 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 this year as Celebrity Host of a behind-the-scenes talk show entitled “Clone Wars: Behind the Force.” Ashley is no stranger to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Ashley, who grew up in central Florida, had one of her first show-business roles as a parade performer at the theme park.

      More plans to come, so keep your comlink set to the Disney Parks Blog!

        Disney really needs to do this at Disneyland! Jedi Training Academy already brings in crowds, Tomorrowland is a snore and has plenty of dead space to use, they need to do SOMETHING for Star Wars there.

      Weirdest part of this set: cards #66 and #67 have the same caption, with different images and card back wording.

      Finished reading Cross Current and Riptide by Paul Kemp. Read Riptide first, but the plot made more sense after a point in Cross Current. Not bad SW novels.

      Rogue One cards

      These odd-colored borders just drive me nuts. All I want is a complete set; the color of the border doesn't matter to me.

      I started buying/trading

      I'm excited about it.

      Inferno Squad and Phasma interest me the most.
