Star Wars Weekends 2014: Full Lineup Revealed

Ray Park, a.k.a. Darth Maul, at Star Wars Weekends

Here’s a little trivia: did you know former “Cheers” star and the Disney•Pixar “lucky charm” John Ratzenberger once appeared on the silver screen in the Star Wars saga? Before he frequented the watering hole where everybody knew his name, he braved the frigid planet Hoth in a minor role in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Next stop for Ratzenberger (or, as he may be known to Star Wars fans, Major Bren Derlin) will be Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends 2014.

Today, we’re pleased to announce the full talent lineup for this year’s event. Celebrities scheduled to attend represent Star Wars actors and actresses from the past (from the Star Wars film saga), present (from the popular animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and even the future (from the eagerly anticipated Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels).
