5 weeks to go and 2 spots left, we'll see if they get filled by one or two actors. Guesses? Hopefully they'll have the majority of those that appear be from Episode VI.

Anthony Daniels? (C3PO)
Carrie Fisher? (Leia)
Tim Rose? (Admiral Ackbar)
Peter Mayhew? (Chewbacca)

Anothony Daniels is always there. I am sure he will be this year.

Carrie fisher, Mark hamill, Harrison ford have never been there. Doubt you will ever see them at SWW. Same as George Lucas himself. Also with the top three actors sign for Star Wars VII. Seriously doubt NO Carrie, Mark, and Ford

If you have read on on Ford he wanted his character to be killed of in return of the Jedi. Lucas wouldn't go for it said would be a bad financial decision for SW movies. Will be interesting.....

Yup, Carrie has been there 2 or 3 times and Mark Hamill was there, I believe it was the first year of SWW, but I don't know if they did autographs back then. It was a lot different back then than it is now. They had the skiff from ROJ (currently on the backlot tour)set up where the jedi academy staqe is and they would come out and interview the guests standing in front of the crowd right in front of the ride. That was the first place I ever saw Anthony Daniels.

I just googled. Carrie was there 2000-2001. Didn't see anything on Mark. Lucas appeared for opening of new version of ride. I don't really count as Lucas opening ride as being there. Again my opinion

Still Str Wars VII is scheduled for 2015. With three main characters filming or about to film. Doubt it. Will be interesting where the story lib goes due to their age. I have read around their kids. That sequel should have been filmed a long time ago.

After the flak about Daniels not signing anything except head shots at Star Wars weekends I highly doubt you will be asked back. Lots of upset guests.

Daniels is VERY picky on what he signs that is NOTHING new. Celebrities and pro sports players are picky.

Daniels has been a regular. He has a right to chose what he signs.

I disagree...he has appeared a few times, but don't consider him a regular. He can be picky, yes, but it is well known that folks from all over bring their personal stuff to have signed. Disney should have ironed this out before it was dropped on us all that first day. Like I said, I doubt he will return anytime soon.

I am sure Disney knew his terms beforehand. To each their own and opinions.

Believe me...I spoke to enough castmembers to know that that wasn't the case. Daniels held them up for more money at the last moment...if they would have paid him more, he would have signed anything anyone had to bring knowing, or guessing, that some would be selling on eBay. Disney didn't budge, so he only signed the headshots making sure each one had the persons name on it.

you're correct, the past couple years they have had a 3rd autographing guest besides the host, but i forget about them sunce they're involved with the Clone Wars(I enjoyed the show but don't collect the autographs), and the 3rd guests don't take part in Stars if the Saga.

I did check his website and it did say he would be there for weekend 4, so I'll add Peter to the list. Most likely just one more live action actor to find out and a month to go, we're almost there. Updated:


Hosts: Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) & James Arnold Taylor (Clone Wars Obi Wan Kenobi)

5/17-19 Weekend 1: Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett) & Ray Park (Darth Maul)

5/24-26 Weekend 2: Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok) & Ray Park

5/31-6/2 Weekend 3: Warwick Davis & ?

6/9-11 Weekend 4: Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) & Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian)

***potential Clone Wars guests could be added to each weekend****

And since when does Disney tell their cast members what's REALLY going on?? Most of them know the rumors like WE do.

I seriously DOUBT the SWW team sat down and discussed the DETAILS of the contract. NOT. ROFLMAO. All the CMs are told. This is what we are doing. Nothing more. Nothing less. The CMs don't get to sit in with imaginer changes or contracts with events.

It's ALWAYS about money.
