Star Wars Weekends 2013: New Experiences and Old Favorites Return - Picture with a Rancor, One-Man Shows

HalloweenExpress.com

There are several new attractions for this year's Star Wars Weekends making it even bigger and better. Take a gander!


PHOTO WITH A RANCOR
A photo opportunity with a "life-size" rancor. The giant beast, which was Jabba the Hutt's prized pet in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, will be on display during the event. The handcrafted replica is 17 feet long and weighs more than 700 pounds. The reptomammal sculpture is well-traveled — it's a popular piece at Star Wars events around the globe and will make its way to our park for Star Wars Weekends.

Warwick Davis and the Ewoks!

ONE-MAN SHOWS
A trio of specialty "one-man shows" will be presented this year, giving guests a peek into the on- and off-screen worlds of three Star Wars celebrities: James Arnold Taylor, Ray Park and Warwick Davis.

"Obi-Wan & Beyond" (each event day) stars James Arnold Taylor. James takes audiences on a journey into his wonderful world of voice acting.

"Visit to the Maul" (Weekends I and II) features Ray Park. Guests can see a demonstration of amazing martial arts skills by the actor who portrayed Darth Maul on the silver screen.

"An Ewok's Tale - My Short Story" (Weekends II and III) stars Warwick Davis. Guests get a unique look into the fascinating world of this Star Wars legend.

Star Wars Weekends 2013 Dates: May 17 - June 9
Star Wars Weekends activities are included with regular Disney's Hollywood Studios admission.

If you plan on attending any of the Star Wars Weekends, be sure to arrive at the park early. Although the official park opening time is 9 a.m., you will be allowed into the park around 8:30. You will not be able to get over to the Star Tours area until the official rope drop at 9, though.

Information Desk for the event is usually located at the entrance to the event area, across from Drew Carey: Sounds Dangerous. This will be the place to have all your event questions answered and to sign up for different Trivia contests.
