Star Wars Weekends is a great tradition for the parks in general and Star Wars fans specifically. This past weekend was the premiere weekend for the 2010 event. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the Empire Strikes Back, so there is a lot to celebrate in the Star Wars Universe.

This weekend’s stars are familiar to all fans of the mythology that George Lucas created so many years ago, and has continued to shepherd along these past few decades. The stars in attendance were: Jeremy Bulloch, Ashley Eckstein, Temuera Morrison, Daniel Logan and Dee Bradley Baker. There are plenty of opportunities to meet these folks, who seemed genuinely happy to spend time with the fans, as well as the requisite motorcade down Hollywood Boulevard.

Daniel Logan

Daniel Logan is the actor who portrayed the young bounty hunter we all know and love, Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones.

Temuera Morrison

Temuera Morrison is the actor who plays Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, as well as playing Commander Cody in Revenge of the Sith.

Dee Bradley Baker

Dee Bradley Baker is the voice behind Captain Rex and all of the clones in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He stopped his car during the procession and leapt out to high-five all of his fans to the delight of the crowd.

Ashley Eckstein

Ashley Eckstein is the voice behind Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and hosted the Clone Wars: Behind the Force autograph sessions.

Jeremy Bulloch

Finally, Jeremy Bulloch brought up the finish to a great motorcade. He played the one and only Boba Fett in Episodes V and VI.
