Star Wars Weekends 2013
« on: January 06, 2013, 05:59:23 AM »
Troopers,set your engines and make preparation for Disney's Hollywood Studios because it's that time of year again where Star Wars Weekends will invade Disney yet again!! Mickey Mouse and his friends are preparing for an annual event of fun and adventure. Every year Hollywood Studios has this wonderful event which is held between May and June and you get to meet and greet lots of your favorite characters from the Star Wars Universe as well as the celebrities who brought them to life. Whether if it's from the live action films or the Clone Wars series! This year it has been announced very early on that 2 Clone Wars voice actors will be the hosts of this show. Those hosts are for the third year in a row James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan and Plo Koon) and Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano). With these two guests taking control of this event, I say it'll be another exciting and fun filled adventure in that Galaxy Far Far Away. For all the info visit the Starwars.com log for details: http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/index.php/2012/12/27/star-wars-weekends-2013-dates-announced/ I hope to see many of you there! United We Find.

You know Jim I'm quite curious as well, as to see if anything will change this year during SWW!? Only time will tell. I'll keep you and everyone else informed on what's to come. I hope we can meet once you come down here. Take care,
Nabil

No unfortunately there's no word on who's going yet except for James and Ashley. They'll start announcing around April. I'll keep you updated in this post ok.

May God have mercy on the merch tent! Darth's Mall can be dangerous on the wallet I'm told.
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

It wasn't as bad a wait for me as it was in 2011. Merchandise wasn't too bad, didn't get too much

Lots of stuff to type when I get back home tho

Unfortunately no Penter, the only other way you'll be able to get any of these merchandise is by going on ebay and purchasing them for a bit more then what they're worth at Darth' Mall.
