Fulcrum, Darth Maul, and Boba Fett Join Forces at Star Wars Weekends

Jedi, Sith, and bounty hunters suspend hostilities for Weekend IV.

The crew of the Ghost has received a transmission from the mysterious Fulcrum, advising that Ahsoka Tano herself — the one and only Ashley Eckstein — will be making special appearances at Disney’s Hollywood Studios today through Sunday, June 7, as part of Star Wars Weekends.

Ashley will be the guest of host James Arnold Taylor for this weekend’s presentations of Star Wars Rebels, during which you can relive some of the exciting twists and turns of the first season of the hit Disney XD animated series.

Our heroes will also be joined by the actors who brought to thrilling life two of the most legendary villains of the Star Wars saga: Boba Fett and Darth Maul. Here is the complete list of Weekend IV celebrities scheduled to appear:

  • Event Host James Arnold Taylor: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars: The Clone Wars; Star Wars Rebels)
  • Ray Park: Darth Maul (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace)
  • Jeremy Bulloch: Boba Fett (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back; Star Wars: Return of the Jedi)
  • Ashley Eckstein: Ahsoka Tano (Star Wars: The Clone Wars; Star Wars Rebels)

In addition to Ashley Eckstein’s participation in this week’s Star Wars Rebels talk show, you can also see her on the event stage as the host of “Padawan Mind Challenge — Family Edition.” Whether you’re a cadet in the Imperial Academy or a surviving member of the Jedi Order, this show is bound to challenge your knowledge of that galaxy far, far away.

With dozens of Star Wars characters appearing throughout the park, the “Legends of the Force” celebrity motorcade, the “Symphony in the Stars” fireworks, and so much more, Star Wars Weekends is as close to the Force as you can get! So who’s joining us this weekend? Is your allegiance to a band of Rebels? Or are you more Sith or bounty hunter? Reveal yourself in the comments!
