Mark Hamill to Appear at Star Wars Weekends for First Time Ever


His most famous film character has destroyed the Death Star, received the Medal of Bravery following The Battle of Yavin, and resisted a turn to the dark side — so what is he going to do next?

He’s going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!

No wait, wrong answer. He’s going to Disney World!

For the first time in event history, Mark Hamill, the legendary actor who brought Luke Skywalker to the silver screen in the Star Wars saga, will appear at Star Wars Weekends. Hamill will be one of the celebrity guests for Weekend IV, June 6-8, 2014. Fans can see him in the daily “Legends of the Force” parade and “Stars of the Saga” talk shows.


If you make plans to attend, be sure to get to the parade route and the “Stars of the Saga” theater early. Hamill’s appearances will most likely be a very popular gathering place for members of the Empire and the Rebellion.

More details about the event have been placed into the memory systems of an R2-unit and we’ll soon reveal them, but we wanted to share this Force-filled news with you today.
