Video: Star Wars Weekends Launches Today at Disney’s Hollywood Studios


Star Wars Weekends began today, and the Disney Parks Blog shared a video that showcased the construction of the Rancor photo opportunity.

Some new things to look out for this year include:

  • A Giant Rancor photo opportunity at Darth's Maul. It was sculpted out of 2,000 square-feet of expanded polystyrene foam.
  • Chip and Dale will be dressed as Ewoks
  • Stormtroopers will be "on the move" and stationed all around the park
  • Tosche Station will be housed as the Main Stage on Hollywood Boulevard. Tosche Station was made famous as the place Luke Skywalker wanted to pick up some more power converters
  • Warwick Davis, the actor that played Wicket the Ewok will host a show titled, "An Ewok's Tale"
