Walt Disney World Announces Dates for 2013 Star Wars Weekends


One of the most popular annual events at Walt Disney World is Star Wars Weekends, and it was just announced that the 2013 fan fest will run May 17 through June 9.

The Force-filled event will take place every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through those dates, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Exact details, like celebrity guests attending, are still being worked out, but Disney has announced that James Arnold Taylor and Ashley Eckstein are returning as celebrity hosts.

Taylor is known to Star Wars fans as the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated TV series, while Eckstein voices Anakin’s Padawan, Ahsoka Tano on the show.
