It doesn’t matter if your favorite Star Wars character is Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Chewbacca or Yoda. The whole intergalactic gang will raid Disney’s Hollywood Studios each weekend for the next month for the park’s annual Star Wars Weekends. Not only will Luke, Leia and the Stormtroopers roam the Hollywood streets, but they and other legends from the film series will also perform live on stage in Stars of the Saga, Padawan Mind Challenge and other shows. Kids under 12 work on mastering the lightsaber at the Jedi Training Academy, while guests embark on their own 3-D adventure on Star Tours – The Adventures Continue. We bet you will also find the adult fans geeking out on their own by hounding actors like Ray Park (Darth Maul – Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett – Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi) and Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar – Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi) for autographs and Instagram selfies. – Aimee Vitek
