More special guests are attending the Star Wars Celebration event in Orlando, Florida this April. Fans will be able to meet and greet the actors that played popular characters such as Chewbacca and Darth Maul. Other special guests are also going to appear.
As announced on the official Star Wars website, Ray Park (Darth Maul), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Daniel Logan (Boba Fett) are all attending Star Wars Celebration this year. They will be signing autographs at the Autograph Hall at the event.
Ray Park of course played Darth Maul who is arguably the second most popular Star Wars villain behind only Darth Vader. Park did all of his own stunts in The Phantom Menace and has worked on numerous other films since. He's always been friendly enough to chat with the many fans he has around the world.
Peter Mayhew is forever known as the original Chewbacca from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and more recently The Force Awakens. Due to his old age (he's 72 years old now), it's expected he will retire from the role soon as Joonas Suotamo has been cast as Chewbacca in the young Han Solo movie. Suotamo did play Chewbacca in some capactity in The Force Awakens too.
Lastly we have Daniel Logan who was the young Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones. He's grown up to be a young man and even reprised the role of Boba Fett in The Clone Wars TV series. It will be interesting to see if Boba Fett makes a return somehow in the aforementioned Han Solo movie. The two characters do have a storied rivalry that has been left unexplored.
Star Wars Celebration Orlando takes place at the Orange County Convention Center from April 13th until April 16th. Aside from special guests, the event is expected to present us new information about upcoming video games and The Last Jedi.
