It’s finally time for Disney to share who will be the guest celebrities at the 2015 edition of Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s a hugely popular event that practically takes over the park on the weekends it’s offered. Also, remember there are 5 weekends this year, so there is extra time for fun and more guests.

So without any further ado, here is the lineup (subject to change, of course):

Weekend I (May 15-17)

  • Ian McDiarmid: Senator/Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace; Star Wars: Attack of the Clones; Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi)
  • Amy Allen: Aayla Secura (Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith)
  • Tiya Sircar: Sabine Wren (Star Wars Rebels)

While it doesn’t feature any of the big three from the original trilogy, I’m very happy with this list. I’m doubly happy to see Peter Mayhew on the list. I hope that means his health issues (bad knees) are resolved.

Adding Frank Oz and Ian McDiarmid is a big catch, but so is Taylor Gray, who is in the very popular Star Wars Rebels series.

Many more details for the expanded event are coming in the new feature. In the mean time, which weekend has your most favorite line up?
