For five consecutive weekends beginning May 14, 2004, the magic of Star Wars will merge with the magic of Disney during Star Wars Weekends at Disney-MGM Studios in Florida. Star Wars fans of all ages and Star Wars characters of all varieties will converge to celebrate the heroes, villains and droids of the saga. The five-week fan-fest will center around the famous Star Tours thrill ride and feature Star Wars celebrities who will take part in meet-and-greet sessions and Hollywood-style motorcades. Each Star Wars Weekend runs Friday through Sunday and will brim with Force-filled fun for the entire family. Some activities to look forward to include:

  • Obi-Wanna-Be: Throughout each day, young Padawans ("Jedi in training") will be chosen to participate in the "Jedi Training Academy" where Jedi hopefuls learn lightsaber moves then test their skills against Darth Vader himself.
  • Galactic Game Show: If you know Star Wars trivia you'll want to attend the Star Wars editions of the popular game show attraction "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire--Play It!" Star Wars-inspired questions, appearances by film characters, and audience participation ensure Jabba-size fun.
  • Interactive, Interstellar Fun: Prove your Star Wars smarts in trivia contests held near the Star Tours attraction, and play with Star Wars-inspired electronic and video games featured in a special Video Starcade.
  • Wookiees, Jawas and Ewoks, Oh My!: You've seen them on-screen, now see them in person (or in alien, as the case may be)... characters from all five Star Wars movies, including Queen Amidala, Darth Maul, Jango Fett, Greedo and more, will roam the Disney-MGM Studios greeting guests, signing autographs and posing for photographs.
  • High-Energy Thrill Ride: Take flight to the moon of Endor in Star Tours, the action-packed flight simulator that synchronizes a fun film with a virtual ride on a starship. It's a hair-raising, light-speed trip fit for droids, smugglers, Wookiees, and Jedi of all ages.
  • A Galaxy of Collectibles: Collectors and souvenir hunters alike will be drawn to Tatooine Traders, an area adjacent to the Ewok Village at the Star Tours attraction, where fans will find event-exclusive Star Wars merchandise -- from trading pins and commemorative posters to apparel, medallions and other limited-edition items -- created by Disney and Lucasfilm Ltd. expressly for Star Wars Weekends 2004.

Daniel Logan played the young clone Fett, son and duplicate of the notorious Jango Fett. With him is Amy Allen, who played the popular female Jedi, Aayla Secura. In the film, she was covered in blue body paint to portray the alien beauty, who can be seen as part of the Jedi force sent to Geonosis to rescue the film's heroes.
