Now that the complete list of celebrities has come out, I have a few questions. Namely, even though all these people are scheduled to be there, what will their involvement be? Looking down the list, I see a celebrity involved with The Clone Wars on every week, leading me to believe that this year's formula will be similar to last year's, namely Jeremy Bulloch and two other celebrities signing autographs each weekend with Ashley Eckstein hosting Behind the Force with a different guest each week. An updated version of the list for what I believe it will turn out to be is below.

May 21 - 23:

Autographs and Stars of the Saga:
Jeremy Bulloch (Bobba Fett)
Temuera Morrison (Jango Fett)
Daniel Logan (Young Bobba Fett)

Behind The Force:
Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano)
Dee Bradley Baker (Captain Rex)

May 28 - 30:

Autographs and Stars of the Saga:
Jeremy Bulloch (Bobba Fett)
Matthew Wood (General Grievous and Battle Droids)
Lorne Peterson (ILM Model Maker)

Behind The Force:
Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano)
Tom Kane (Voice of Yoda)

June 4 - 6:

Autographs and Stars of the Saga:
Jeremy Bulloch (Bobba Fett)
Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian)
Ray Park (Darth Maul)

Behind The Force:
Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano)
Dave Filoni (Supervising Director)

June 11 - 13:

Autographs and Stars of the Saga:
Jeremy Bulloch (Bobba Fett)
Ray Park (Darth Maul)
Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca)

Behind The Force:
Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano)
James Arnold Taylor (voices Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Clone Wars)

The thing that gets me is this year, people like Ashley are listed as attending celebrities, so wouldn't that mean they are signing autographs just like the Peter Mayhew or Jeremy Bullochs of the world? There doesn't seem to be a separation that would indicate they would be doing anything different than any celeb that attends.

last year they did refer to the Clone Wars people as "celebritie guest in Behind the Force" this year that is not mentioned. I hope all of them sign autographs

I would think that this year they are all going to sign autographs. Last year there were a lot of people unhappy that Ashley wasn't signing. (She of course did on the weekend that Morrison had to cancel)

Ideally, all of the celebrities attending SWW 2010 will be availible for autographs. I was simply making a prediction based on last year's format.

How would they do that with all signing though? Would they alternate with the stands they have? I agree with you. Ideally they all would sign but then I'd have to call in a lot of favors from family to get the fastpasses since we're flying down Saturday of weekend 1.

Weekend 3 with Lorne Peterson would be the best bet to learn anything new

I just found this on facebook from Ashley Eckstein's official fan page, written by Ashley:"Unfortunately I will not be at Wondercon, but I will be signing at Disney SWW this year. I'm looking forward to it!"

So Alshey will be signing but I'm not sure about anyone else.

Wow, Jeremy Bulloch (Bobba Fett), will be there for all the SWW. In the past he was usually on the list for weekend 1, which disappointed Lowell because he was still in school. This year college gets out by the first week in May, so SWW's 1 & 2 here we come.

So for those of you who have been there duing Jeremy Bulloch's visits before, what do you suggest as far as when we need to be there. And what day may be better.

The only other time we attended SWW, we arrive between 5:30-6 for Anthony Daniels. We did get an afternoon spot. I wouldn't wait for him again though. He seems a bit full of himself.

Found this on Facebook!

James Arnold Taylor Alex Hardwick Doesn't know Star Wars Weekends!?!?! Just kidding, it's a big SW celebration at Disneyworld every year. It's a great time and it's my second year I'll be going, this time I get to actually do some signings and meet people. Last year I only did the CW behind the scenes show with the lovely Ashley Eckstein.

This was posted on James Arnold Taylor's fan page by James Arnold Taylor himself! It looks like the Clone Wars crew will be signing this year...oh boy. I better call in the favors now. :)

Since Jeremy is hosting, he should be the easiest autograph to get. Most people will line up in the other lines first then switch to the host's, because it is usually the shortest and simplest line to get a second fast pass for. However if he is your target I would show up between 6-7 and go there first and you should have no problems. Typically I always have better luck getting my autographs on sundays than any other day, unless you like watching the sunrise on cold concrete.

I didn't even notice that he was the host. I had to call my son at college to tell him. He is so excited. Thanks for the info.

Disney has finally updated their site:

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/parks/hol...r-wars-weekend/

In addition to all of the entertainment, there are plenty of conversations, autograph sessions and motorcades with the celebrities and creators of the Star Wars cosmos. This year's celebrity hosts for all 4 weekends are Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett) and Ashley Eckstein (voice of Ahsoka).

Call Upon the Force!
Call (407) 827-2799 and choose from either the Light Side or the Dark Side of the Force to hear a special message from a Star Wars character inviting you to be a part of this special event!

2010 Star Wars Weekends Schedule

Weekend 1: May 21 - 23, the actual 30th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back
Temuera Morrison (Jango Fett)
Daniel Logan (Boba Fett, Episode II)
Dee Bradley Baker (voice of Captain Rex, Star Wars: The Clone Wars)

Weekend 2: May 28 - 30
Matthew Wood (voice of General Grievous)
Lorne Peterson (Chief Model Maker, Star Wars Saga)
Tom Kane (voice of Yoda, Star Wars: The Clone Wars)

Weekend 3: June 4 - 6
Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian)
Ray Park (Darth Maul)
Dave Filoni (Supervising Director, Star Wars: The Clone Wars)

Weekend 4: June 11 - 13
Ray Park (Darth Maul)
Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca)
James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars: The Clone Wars)

Appearances subject to change without notice.

Grab a Disney's FASTPASS before the Park opens to ensure your place in line for celebrity autographs. Find the autograph FASTPASS kiosk outside the Front Gate entrance. Quantities are limited.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, be on the lookout for the "Dark Side," near the Backlot Tour across from Studios Catering Co., where you'll find all things Star Wars. Boba's Bounty offers exclusive Star Wars Weekends merchandise and the Dark Side Depot has Star Wars-themed gifts, apparel and more.

Each day ends with the Hyperspace Hoopla! show, where many favorites let loose with music, comedy, dancing and more. With Ewoks, Wookiees, stormtroopers, Jawas and more invading Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park, young Padawan Learners and their parents would be wise to have their cameras ready.
