This year’s Star Wars Weekends at Disney World just got a little more exciting, as it was announced today over at the Disney Parks Blog that for the first time ever, Mark Hamill will be making an appearance at Star Wars Weekends! Here is the official announcement:
For the first time in event history, Mark Hamill, the 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” Star Wars-themed motorcade and in a featured talk show.
Hamill’s appearances will most likely be a very popular gathering place for members of the Empire and the Rebellion, so be sure to arrive early.
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.
This is definitely some great news for fans attending this year’s Star Wars Weekends, but one cant help but think if maybe he will be attending this year’s event because of an upcoming casting announcement for Episode VII? We shall find out soon enough if that’s the case, as Episode VII is scheduled to start shooting in May, a whole month before Mark Hamill is scheduled to appear at Star Wars Weekends.
