With the release date for Star Wars Episode VII now less than two years away, Disney has been starting to gear up their Star Wars promotions. Lucasfilm recently launched official Instagram and Tumblr accounts for Stars Wars.
Disney has also just announced the dates for their Star Wars Weekends 2014. Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm, there has been speculation that Disney might expand the number of Star Wars Weekends, but it looks like Disney will be sticking with just four weekends again this year.
Star Wars Weekends at Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World will be held every weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) from May 16-June 8, 2014. Here are the four weekend dates: Weekend I: May 16 – 18, 2014; Weekend II: May 23 – 25, 2014; Weekend III: May 30 – June 1, 2014; and Weekend IV: June 6 – 8, 2014.
According to Disney, Star Wars Weekends features the largest collection of official Star Wars characters found at any theme park in the world, star conversations with Star Wars celebrities, and a Death Star-sized motorcade through the park. There are usually celebrity hosts for Star Wars Weekend, but the celebrity hosts for Star Wars Weekends 2014 have not been announced yet.
