Star Wars fans can meet actress Ashley Eckstein at the Orlando Science Center on Saturday, March 23, 2013.
An alumna of Orlando Repertory Theater, Eckstein is known as the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
She will be appearing at the OSC from 10am to 5pm, as part of the final days of the popular exhibit Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination, which ends April 7. Eckstein will participate in question-and-answer panels, autograph sessions and photo ops throughout the day.
Admission to Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination is $27 for adults and $20 for youth (ages 3-11), and includes all regular exhibits and films at the OSC.
For more information on the event, please call 407-514-2000 or visit osc.org.
Last month, Walt Disney World announced that the revamped Star Tours attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios would reopen on May 20, 2011.
Now comes word that May 20 will also be the start of the 2011 Star Wars Weekends.
This extremely popular annual event will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday through June 12.
What I’m most excited about is one of the guests for the first two weekends will be actor Anthony Daniels, who has provided the voice for C3PO in all six Star Wars films. Daniels used to be a regular guest at the event, but has been M.I.A. for the last few years.
My guess is his appearance is due to the fact that C3PO has a central role in the new version of the Star Tours attraction. But he is a great guest and has hundreds of great stories about the filming of the trilogies.
Daniels is confirmed for May 20-23 and May 27-29.
Also announced is Ashley Eckstein, who provides the voice of Ahsoka Tano in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” and will act as a host for a behind-the-scenes talk show “Clone Wars: Behind the Force” all four weekends.
I know I’ll probably be there for the Daniels weekends. Not sure about the last two, but I’ll know once I see the guest list. How about you?
