Complete Star Wars Weekends Guest List Revealed

By: Dominic Jones

Disney has finally released the complete guest list for this year's Star Wars Weekends events, and boy there are some good ones!  Check out the list below:

MAY 17-19
Ray Park – (Darth Maul)
Jeremy Bullock (Bobba Fett)
Dee Bradley Baker (voice of Clones on CW)

MAY 24-26
Ray Park (Darth Maul)
Warwick Davis (Wicket)
Jim Cummings (voice of Hondo Ohnaka-Star Wars Clone Wars)
MAY 31 - JUNE 2
Warwick Davis (Wicket)
Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi)
Sam Witwer (Voice of Darth Maul - Star Wars: The Clone Wars)

JUNE 7-9
Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian)
Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca)
Tom Kane (Voice of Yoda in Star Wars Clone Wars)

The two stand out guest for me (even though I, sadly, won't be going) are Jim Cummings and Sam Witwer.  This will be Cummings first Star Wars specific event.  His character Hondo Ohnaka has become one of the most beloved characters on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, espescially having played such a major role in season 5.  Hopefully this will be the first of many Star Wars events for Cummings.  Witwer, the other standout on the list, is no stranger to conventions (Star Wars or otherwise) and I know from first hand experience (on two occasions) how great he is to the fans.  Plus Witwer is in the incredible position of passionate Star Wars fan turned Star Wars actor so any time he opens his mouth it's worth listening to, regardless of whether he's talking about a project he's involved in or not.

One thing is certain, fans in attendance for any of these weekends are in for a real treat!
