If you're heading to Orlando, Florida this weekend for the final Disney Star Wars Weekend, you're in for an extra special treat. It has been announced that Star Wars Rebels Executive producer and Supervising director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Dave Filoni will be in attendance. Dave will be taking part in a special interview with event host James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan on The Clone Wars) at 5:00pm on Saturday June 14th (tomorrow!!)

It's great to see Dave heading to Weekends, especially this weekend as it is very much a Clone Wars reunion. Guests from The Clone Wars include Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker), Cat Taber (Padme Amidala), Tom Kane (Yoda), and Dee Bradley Baker (the clones), as well as hosts Taylor (Kenobi), and Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano). Hopefully FIloni will be able to get in on the fun with his old cast. Also in attendance will be Steve Blum (Zeb) who will be representing Star Wars Rebels.
Looking forward to hearing all about the panel from those who are there (really jealous of all of you!) and I can't wait to see what surprises for Star Wars Rebels Filoni has in store for the fans!

Update: Unfortunately Dave just posted this message on his Facebook page:
"Hey Star Wars fans,
As some of you guessed, since this is the last weekend for Disney Star Wars Weekends, I was going to fly down to Orlando to meet up with everyone.
Unfortunately, due to the needs of our production on Star Wars Rebels, I have decided to stay here and continue to work on the show. Our team on Rebels wants to deliver the best show possible, and in that effort every minute counts and every detail matters.
Thank you for your continued support.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and I’ll see you at San Diego Comic-con!
May the Force be with you,
