We are roughly about 6 months away from when Star Wars Weekends should begin so let the wild speculation begin! What does this year's event hold being the first year that Disney officially owns the rights to all of these character? It's Return of the Jedi's 30th Anniversary so there will likely be merchandise similar to 2007's and 2010's A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back Merchandise. Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith will also be re-released in 3D next year so those could play a factor into the theme. Will we see more of the future of Clone Wars, perhaps a glimpse at the in development Star Wars: Detours comedy series, the rumored series to be released on Disney XD, or maybe even a first look at Episode VII?

Will the Raiders of the Lost Jedi Temple of Doom make a long asked for SWW appearance? What kind of music will Darth Vader be dancing too in the Hyperspace Hoopla? Return of the Carbon Freeze Me Experience? Sound off with your hopes and any rumors you might have

Even though Disney owns the Star Wars franchise now, I was kinda hoping that they would quit Star Wars Weekends, since it "breaks" Disney's Hollywood Studios. Why can't they just dedicate a separate theme park to Star Wars because it's just that big?

@COH#1Fan Until such a time as there is a Star Wars theme park, I still want to see SWW at DHS.

@ABCSoapFan1981 Interesting! I had not heard that myself. If that is the case we should hear lots about it soon, January at the latest.

Actually Summer starts June 21st next year, so it could still be the same dates we've been having, last 2 weekends of May first 2 weekends of June, but here's hoping they move it back.

I've already got trips booked for two weekends. About how far out will they announce the guests for the specific weekends? I'm bringing a friend this year that has never been for SWW and I want to make sure she has a great time. (really who wouldn't have a great time?)

If you need anything from Star Wars Weekends, let me know. (Merchandise, autographs, etc...)

Ever the opportunist... I knew limited edition merchandise is resold on ebay, but getting the Autographs for a profit? Kind feel bad for the family with Star Wars fans that are turned away at the cutoff point from a lifelong memory, because someone's trying to make $5. 2 years ago, I agreed with the criticism of Anthony Daniels, but after seeing this post, Daniels has a point...

I was doing some research today, trying to figure out a celebrity list, or at least figure out who won't be in Orlando this year during the weekends that I'm trying to get to the Studios, and thought I'd share this sight for other curious autograph fans. The link below has a lot of SW actors and voice actors and their appearances listed for this years events around the globe. Many of the SWW regulars are already booked up for May and June.

My personal opinion getting the autographs has more memories. :). I do live in Los Angeles and have opportunities to get autographs. Have seen celeb sightings at Disneyland. I won't be using an autograph site or ebay. If I personally get it then I KNOW it's the real McCoy

I love the logo this year. Can't wait to add the pin of it to my collection! Plus Ray Park and Warwick together? Looks like Weekend 2 it is!

Now on to more serious talk. Disney/Lucasfilm has announced that the Clone Wars is canceled until further notice, and Star Wars Detours is not happening any time soon either. Of course they are in development for a new animated series and Star Wars VII but that begs the question, what will they do for SWW stable Behind the Force and the last several years James Arnold Taylor and Ashley Eckstein have been hosting the event, but with CW no more will the mouse house still want them involved? What do you guys think about it, and who would you like to see host the event if it's a no go for our voice actors?

I think that they should stick with both hosts...JAT is known not only in the CW but in the video games and in the Behind the Force Show they show how the cartoon is made, even though the CW will be over I think that alot of people will find the process of voice-over interesting enough to go see this show. Both hosts are great at what they do.
On another note...thinking about the fact that there will be no 3pm parade who thinks that the SW motorcade will be more packed (if that's possible)? People will watch the SW parade even though they're not SW fans just for the fact that it's a parade and that DIsney characters are there.

They might not. People are so used to a parade being in the afternoon, that they might just miss it before realizing that there was a parade. [we can only hope]
