Schedules Are Posted For Star Wars Celebration Anaheim & Star Wars Weekends!
It’s starting to feel like we are about to make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs to the start of this year’s Star Wars epicness as schedules were recently released for both Star Wars Celebration Anaheim and Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios.
It’s hard to believe that SWCA is a little over a week away and based on the events and guests that have been announced, this promises to be the biggest and best Celebration to date. SWCA kicks off on Thursday, April 16th at 10am with what may be the biggest event of the 4 day convention as JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy host the initial panel that is sure to break the internet as they lay out the groundwork for SWCA as well as the franchise. Will we get a new trailer for The Force Awakens during this kick-off? If a tree falls in the woods on Endor, does it crush an AT-ST and make a noise?
As in year’s past, there is actually so many events, that it presents hard choices to make as far as what to attend and what to miss. Thankfully, both the SWCA phone app and website allow you log in and pick and choose critical events to make your own schedule.
Alternatively, the SWCA schedule has been uploaded to Google Docs in a spreadsheet format, which gives a good view as to competing events for your valuable time: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/t77m4ORCw3FNj54CWsLQ8kQ/htmlview

After reading this that you posted for SWW…….”Week Five: (6/12-6/14) Frank Oz (Yoda), Ray Park (Darth Maul), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Taylor Grey (Ezra Bridger)” I’m thinking a possible journey may be in order! Why can’t my bank account just automatically refill?

Week 5 definitely seems like the biggest for this season. It’s a bit of a bummer that Frank Oz isn’t participating with the autograph signings, but it will be fun to hear his stories at the interview sessions.
