Can you feel the Force coursing inside you? Star Wars Weekends is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios ® and the Force is strong with this year’s event.

Star Wars fans your dreams of experiencing an out-of-this-world journey with some of your favorite Star Wars characters, celebrities and planets is about to come true. Beginning May 16 and running every weekend through June 15 Disney ® invites you to join host James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and immerse yourself in a galaxy far, far away!

Hollywood Studios ® will almost be unrecognizable as dozens of favorite Star Wars characters from both sides of the force including members of the Rebel Alliance, members of the Je di Council, heroes of the Clone Wars and even celebrities from the actual films flood the streets of the park, convincing you to join their side. In addition to the characters and stars, guests will enjoy interstellar entertainment with Jedi Training Academy, where kids under 12 can show off their lightsaber skills against Darth Vader himself; Padawan Mind Challenge, where little ones can wield their mental force alongside popular Star Wars characters in trivia challenges; Adventures at Premiere Theater where you can go behind the Force and experience the newest installment in the Star Wars saga – Star Wars Rebels, a Star Wars-themed talk show, a Stormtrooper pre-show and much more. You can even end your day in a galaxy far, far away with Symphony in the Stars, the finale celebration featuring Star Wars characters and fireworks and much more.

The intergalactic fun doesn’t end with the entertainment either. Star Wars enthusiasts can take a piece of the saga home with them with limited edition merchandise and collectibles as well as unique food and drink offerings not normally available at the park.

And of course with a new Star Wars film coming out soon, fans can expect to experience snippets of information from the film throughout the Star Wars Weekends. Who knows what Disney ® will reveal for its Star Wars fans!
