    Jake Lloyd: Anakin Skywalker, The Phantom Menace
    The actor who portrayed young Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace, Lloyd was cast at the age of seven-and-a-half, having been watched closely by casting director Robin Gurland since she first spotted him as a five-year-old.

    Daniel Logan: Young Boba Fett, Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Boba Fett spans the entire Star Wars saga, and started with the character as a young man, portrayed in Attack of the Clones by television and film actor Logan. Recently, Logan reprised this iconic role, voicing the character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series.

    Matt Wood: General Grievous, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Bib Fortuna, The Phantom Menace.
    Wood, the Supervising Sound Editor for the Star Wars prequels, created the voice for General Grievous for Episode III, and voices for other prequel characters as well. Always busy with his technical responsibilities for the film, Wood managed to find his voice -- or rather helped the nefarious droid general find his voice.

    Amy Allen: Aayla Secura, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith.
    A striking blue Twi'lek Jedi on the cover of a Dark Horse comic made an impression on writer/director George Lucas. So much so, that he requested that a fit female extra be found to play the part. Allen, who was a production assistant at ILM, was recruited for Episode II, and returned to reprise her role in Episode III.

    Caroline Blakiston: Mon Mothma, Return of the Jedi.
    Blackiston's busy career began in the 1950s and has continued with dozens of television and film appearances in the U.K. and beyond.

    Julian Glover: General Veers, The Empire Strikes Back.
    The busy actor has appeared not only in The Empire Strikes Back and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, but also voiced Aragog in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and played Triopas in Troy.

    Frank Hensen: Stormtrooper, Rebel guard, Skiff guard, Return of the Jedi.
    Hensen's filmography is as varied and interesting as his many roles in Episode VI. In addition to acting roles he has been a stunt coordinator and fight coordinator, appearing recently in Sherlock Holmes as a stunt performer.

    Ian Liston: Wes Janson, The Empire Strikes Back.
    Liston's character of Wes Janson has built a loyal following not only from his screen time, but also from the character's role in a number of Star Wars novels and comics. Liston's acting career spans several decades.

    Jack McKenzie: Cal Alder, The Empire Strikes Back.
    McKenzie, who played the deck Lieutenant on the Hoth Rebel Base, has appeared in a number of television series and movies, including the classics A Bridge Too Far and Gandhi.

    Christopher Muncke: Captain Khurgee, A New Hope.
    The movie and television actor played the scanning crew leader and pilot in the first Star Wars movie. As an added trivia note for fans, Muncke also appeared with fellow Star Wars actors Anthony Forrest and Garrick Hagon in the 1977 James Bond movie, The Spy Who Loved Me.

    Chris Parsons: 4-LOM, K-3PO,The Empire Strikes Back.
    In addition to performing two iconic droid characters in The Empire Strikes Back, Parsons also performed in Return of the Jedi.

    Toby Philpott: Jabba Puppeteer, Return of the Jedi.
    Philpott's puppeteer and animatronic credits include Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Little Shop of Horrors, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, among many others

    George Roubicek: Commander Praji, A New Hope.
    This Austrian-born actor has had a storied acting career, spanning more than 50 years. Beginning in 1957 with The One That Got Away, Roubicek has performed agents, officers, soldiers, and kings.

    Look for one of the two other headliners to be announced next week according to official pix. I have a feeling that this will be Anthony Daniels and also they are working on a package deal for the Clone Wars actors. Similar to what they did for Fan Days 3 last October and look for official pix trading cards to be produced for all the guests. These cards are cool as they have a strip at the bottom perfect for getting signed.

    Charlie Ross, the creator and performer of ?The One Man Star Wars Trilogy? will bring his show to Celebration V this August in Orlando!

    Since his first appearance at a Star Wars Celebration in 2002, Ross has traveled the world entertaining audiences with his lively take on movies IV, V, and VI. Fans of the Star Wars movies and fans of live theater can enjoy an exceptional show each time the energetic actor performs. The Canadian performer, who has appeared in his original productions of ?The One Man Lord of the Rings? as well as his Star Wars show, is slated to offer four performances scheduled over the Celebration V weekend, August 12-15.

    Ross, a long-time Star Wars fan himself, has been performing to rave reviews. Using no props, and no instruments except his versatile and talented voice, Ross performs everything from dialogue and music to sound effects and battle scenes. The result is a high-energy gambol through the original trilogy that fans will not soon forget.

    Those who attend Star Wars Celebration V should not miss these performances, which are included with the price of a regular admission badge, while seats are available. Show location and times will be announced closer to the show. Stay tuned to starwarscelebration.com and starwars.com for schedule updates.

    This news sucks but they'll be NO DARTH VADER AT C5, that's right Dave Prowse has been banned from attending C5. You can read all about it at his official website http://www.darthvader-starwars.com/. This sucks for anyone who didn't meet or get an autograph at C4 and any Vader collectors.

    It's because he is saying lucasfilm isn't paying him anymore and it's only this year he's complaining about it. Looks like they are boycotting him in everything.

    Two more guests announced today:

    - Mike Edmonds, The Empire Strikes Back, Ugnaught and Return of the Jedi, Ewok Logray.

    - Robert Watts: Began his career in 1967 as a location manager for the James Bond classic You Only Live Twice, and a year later worked as production manager on 2001: A Space Odyssey. But Watts didn't cross paths with George Lucas until he was hired to be the production supervisor for a soon-to-be blockbuster, Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. He continued his role as production manager and got a taste for more responsibility as an associate producer for Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and associate producer for Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Watts continued to produce for such films as Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Alive.

    An update from Ben Stevens of Official Pix via the rebelscum boards:

    "Fyi, Two get announced today, one Friday, CW next week. With the exception of our pending headliner and Kurtz (who is still MIA on email), we are pretty much done. Focus next week will be photos and merchandise for the show. Ratzenberger is out... Film deal killed his attendance. We will do a private signing for him as his time allows."

    Another update from Ben Stevens:

    "Right, while Kurtz is a big name in these forums, he is not that well recognized to the masses. Hamill is our pending guy. Just gotta get him to say yes. He has stuff new on his plate, wants to come, just gotta confirm him...

    Our $400 person is still hanging out there. I'd say everyday that passes makes it less likely, but it's also something that could happen the day of.... It's all about timing more than anything. I know that doesnt help your planning, but it's the reality of the situation.

    Today is a couple of ESB guys. Friday the $20 guy we are excited about. CW next week. No surprises there..."

    Ben Stevens with another update on the guest list taken from the rebelscum boards:

    "An update: The guy we were using to contract the Kurtz deal through went out of the country a few weeks ago (and is still out of the country). Our last email from him 3 weeks ago was that they couldnt sign the deal as is because we needed to tweak the contract (not uncommon). Long story short, weeks went by without any contact. Too many weeks. Now past deadline. He hope to have him at another event in the near future if we can hammer it out.

    Clone Wars - should be announced next week. No surprises to this RS crowd. Most there for the masses of new attendees.

    Hamill - still pending. I gotta just leave it to that. He wants to come, even if just for a day. We are moving forward like he is with our merchandising. If he attends, autograph will be $125.

    Uber - no idea. Offer is out there for a charity of their choice. Idea was good enough to pass the first couple of blockades. Could be a very last minute thing. If we know more, we will let you know.

    That's it. We have confirmed 9 (would have been 10 with Ratz) first time Celebration guests that should keep you RS guys happy."

    -Ben

    Looking forward to the Clone Wars announcement and what there C5 product will look like.
