Star Wars Weekends are back. Hosted by James Arnold Tylor (the voice of Obi-Wan from The Clone Wars), the festival is held annually at the Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park of the Walt Disney World Resort. The event occurs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for four consecutive weekends in May and June and features appearances by cast and crew members from the Star Wars franchise. Check out a recap of the first weekend after the jump…
The most interesting guests for the first weekend were Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine), Amy Allen (Aayla Secura), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) and Tiya Sircar (Sabine Wren from Rebels).
