I’ve heard that Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren and Chopper will be making appearances at Star Wars Weekends 2014. These characters are from the Star Wars Rebels series. Ezra, Sabine and Chopper are supposed to appear on stage, but from what I’ve heard, they won’t do meet and greets.
R2-Mk was introduced to Star Wars Weekends a couple of years back, but wasn’t available for meets in 2012. R2-MK is Jedi Mickey’s personal droid. I have a personal droid too, it’s called Razr Maxx, but that’s beside the point. R2-MK was only available in the afternoons for select meets during Star Wars Weekends. I met him Weekend One 2013.
Among the new offerings for 2013 Star Wars Weekends are the Chipwoks. It’s Chip n Dale dressed as Ewoks, so I like to call them “Chipwoks.” The meet and greet is a great new addition and it’s proven to be very popular during the first two weekends. In the Star Wars series the Ewoks are a hunter-gatherer species that helped save the rebel alliance. They resemble Teddy Bears, so Chip n Dale are a natural for the role. I’m grateful they didn’t turn Duffy into Duffwok!
“Also new this year is a photo opportunity with a “life-size” rancor. The giant beast, which was Jabba the Hutt’s prized pet in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, will be on display during the event. The handcrafted replica is 17 feet long and weighs more than 700 pounds. The reptomammal sculpture is well-traveled — it’s a popular piece at Star Wars events around the globe and will make its way to our park for Star Wars Weekends.”
