I’m still surprised that Disney did not make any announcements regarding Star Wars or Star Wars Weekends as part of their “May the 4th Be With You” Star Wars Day Celebration. That said I have scoured the internet to find who is and who is not confirmed for this year so you can plan your trip accordingly! Here’s what I’ve been able to gather thus far from star’s social media pages. Of course only a few have been confirmed by Disney and talent is subject to change without notice so please keep that in mind.

This video came up on my radar the other day and it features Sorcerer Radio regular guest Ashley Eckstein. She is the the voice behind Jedi Padiwan Ahsoka Tano on “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” as well as the mastermind designer of the ”Her Universe” clothing line. She’s a real “fan girl” and over the years not only has she endeared herself to millions of Star Wars fans but the rest of the sci-fi world as well. In the video she talks about her fandom as well as the inspiration behind Her Universe.
