Star Wars Weekends

The extremely popular Star Wars Weekends will be held again in 2003 on five weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) in May and June. The actual dates: are May 16-18, May 23-25, May 30 - June 1, June 6-8, and June 13-15.

All special activities planned are included with regular Disney-MGM Studios admission. There is no additional fees or admission charges.

The weekends include appearances of dozens of characters from the Star Wars films. In fact, opportunities to actually meet some of the celebrities from the Star Wars films -- Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones -- is a key part of the planned events.

Anthony Daniels, who has starred as C-3PO in all five films, will be at the park durign the opening weekend of May 16-18, 2003.

Other characters you'll be able to meet include Queen Amidala, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Greedo, Zam Wessel, and Jango Fett.

A Special edition of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire--Play It! will be run during the weekends featuring Star Wars trivia questions and appearances by some of the characters. Other Star Wars trivia contests and games will be held near Star Tours and a special arcade will be set up to show off many Star Wars-based games.

Jedi Training Academy sessions will be held to give young kids the chance to learn more about the force, including jousting (using a lightsaber, of course) with none other than Darth Vader.

Of course, many Star Wars Collectibles and other merchandise will be available for sale during the weekends including trading pins, posters, and limited-edition items.
