He is Disney's new hope, and he's refusing Uncle Owen's offer to stay on for one more season to spend the weekend of June 6, 2014 at Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. For the first time in Star Wars Weekends history, Luke Skywalker himself will be attending the galactic interactive event.
Actor Mark Hamill has never made an appearance at Disney's fan favorite event, and will be the first of the Original Trilogy's "big three" to be a celebrity guest.
According to the official Disney Parks blog, "Hamill will be one of the celebrity guests for Weekend IV, June 6-8, 2014. Fans can see him in the daily “Legends of the Force” Star Wars-themed motorcade and in a featured talk show. More details about the event have been placed into the memory systems of an R2-unit and we’ll soon reveal them, but we wanted to share this Force-filled news with you today."
The blog also noted that fans who wish to receive a pass to visit Mark Hamill should arrive early. Fans already start lining up before sunrise, and this year will not be any different. The Force will be with the lucky Star Wars fans who have the opportunity to meet Hamill himself
