With spring in the air and the weather warming up, many of us are looking forward to Star Wars Weekends
already and while we have the dates announced, we still don't know all of the celebrities that will be in attendance. What's taking so long? And when will the celebrity list be announced for 2011
Booking these celebrities for Star Wars Weekends is a long process and coordinating schedules is never easy. Even though many of the celebrities we see each year at Star Wars Weekends have been coming for years, each year presents a new challenge for Disney.
To give you an idea of when the celebrity lists have been announced in years past, we went through the Studios Cenrtal archives (located conveniently next to a Dunkin Donuts) and looked up the dates that celebrity lists were announced.
- 2010: March 18
- 2009: April 10
- 2008: April 04
- 2007: March 13
- 2006: April 18
From this list, we can see we're now just entering the window of time of when we can reasonably expect to hear an announcement. Based on historical evidence, we could hear as early as tomorrow or as late as a month from now. Truthfully, past experiences don't mean anything for 2011 per se, but Disney is usually consistent as we can see.
Don't forget we already know the Star Wars Weekends hosts and one guest for Weekends one and two, which you can see on our Star Wars Weekends Celebrities page.
