Star Wars Weekends dates for 2015. Each weekend between May 15 and June 14.
Our pal Mary Franklin has a strong supporting role in this video about the real-life Chopper and his travels! (There’s a new Rebels clip at the end as well.)
James Arnold Taylor chats with Mark Hamill at Star Wars Weekends! He chats about his beard (yes, it’s exactly what you think it is,) talks Star Wars, does impressions, and even breaks into the Joker. (via)
In a hurry? Just the Joker/Luke dialogue:
Yesterday brought the picture, today a video.
Mark Hamill wields a lightsaber again at Disney World. You’re welcome, Luklovers.
Disney Parks has posted two the Rebels clips shown at the Weekends so far… I’ve heard there’s a different one for each weekend, so expect a few more of these.
Mark Hamill talks Disney, Episode VII, fandom and more. He’ll make his debut Star Wars Weekends appearance later this week in Orlando.
Fans attending the first Star Wars Weekend this year at Disney World got a special message from J.J. Abrams. He doesn’t drop any mystery box bombs, but it’s a nice gesture.
And while the beloved/controversial Dance-Off With The Star Wars Stars has been replaced with a more “respectful” and “tasteful” finale show, there are Stormtroopers rocking out to Earth hits, which I suppose is something:
Mark Hamill: “I would be the most reviled person on the planet,” if he had turned down Episode VII. We already knew about he and Carrie Fisher’s Celebration lunch with George Lucas, but the quote about “angry townspeople with torches” is sadly probably true. Shameful, but true. This is not a gentle fandom.
