Daniel Logan to Blog from Star Wars Weekends

StarWars.com Team | May 27, 2008


Actor Daniel Logan.

Attack of the Clones Boba Fett actor Daniel Logan blogs about Memorial Day, ANZAC Day in New Zealand, and his upcoming appearance at Disney Star Wars Weekend in Orlando, Florida from June 6-8, 2008. We can’t wait to see him there!

Daniel writes in his blog:

This will be a great weekend. Not only will you get to see me there, but the original Boba, Jeremy Bulloch, will be there as well. I am excited to be in Orlando together with Jeremy for the first time. We have both attended the Star Wars Weekends in the past, but this will be the first time that both Bobas will be together on the same weekend. As I did last year, I will be sending a report, with pictures, from the event to Starwars.com. So I hope you will stop in and take a look at my story from Orlando over the weekend of June 6-8.

Also, another special thing about that weekend… I will be celebrating my 21st birthday on June 6! Little Boba is not so little anymore!
