Did you all just hear that collective gasp? No…it wasn’t because of a busted March Madness bracket…it’s because for the first time ever, Mark Hamill (otherwise known in the Star Wars saga as Luke Skywalker) will appear during Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The actor will make his debut during the fourth weekend of Star Wars Weekends, June 6-8.
Fans will have the opportunity to see him in the daily “Legends of the Force” Star Wars-themed motorcade and in a featured talk show, which will likely be held at the Premiere Theater. (The location isn’t official, as of yet. Just speculation on my part.). Hamill will not participate in any autograph signings.
Could this be a great indicator of how amazing Star Wars Weekends will be this year? We’ve already learned that there will be a new fireworks show this year. Only time will tell as to how Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm will further enhance these fantastic fun-filled weekends.
This year, Star Wars Weekends will take place during five consecutive weekends (Friday-Sunday), from May 16 to June 15.
