    For five consecutive weekends beginning May 14, 2004, the magic of Star Wars will merge with the magic of Disney during Star Wars Weekends at Disney-MGM Studios in Florida. Star Wars fans of all ages and Star Wars characters of all varieties will converge to celebrate the heroes, villains and droids of the saga. The five-week fan-fest will center around the famous Star Tours thrill ride and feature Star Wars celebrities who will take part in meet-and-greet sessions and Hollywood-style motorcades. Each Star Wars Weekend runs Friday through Sunday and will brim with Force-filled fun for the entire family.

    StarWars.com has revealed the poster for this year's Star Wars Weekends, a sendup of the classic SW poster. Check it out here.

    They've also revealed the guest list which differs from what TFN was previously reported:

    May 14, 15 & 16 -- Jeremy Bulloch & Jake Lloyd

    Jeremy Bulloch played the legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, while Jake Lloyd took on the role of young Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace.

    May 21, 22 & 23 -- Peter Mayhew

    A fan favorite from the classic trilogy, Peter Mayhew is not stranger to Star Wars Weekends. The towering Peter Mayhew played Chewbacca the Wookiee in the classic trilogy, and will again appear in Episode III.

    May 28, 29 & 30 -- Anthony Daniels & Andy Secombe

    Fans know Anthony Daniels for his role as C-3PO throughout the Star Wars saga. In Episode I and II, Andy Secombe provided the gruff voice and memorable performance of Watto, the computer-generated alien junk trader from Tatooine.

    June 4, 5 & 6 -- Warwick Davis & Billy Dee Williams

    Warwick Davis was only 11 years old when he played the Ewok hero Wicket in Return of the Jedi. In Episode I, he played multiple roles, including that of Anakin's young friend Wald. Billy Dee Williams played the dashing scoundrel Lando Calrissian in Episodes V and VI.

    June 11, 12 & 13 -- Daniel Logan

    Daniel Logan, who played the young Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones, will be the special guest for this year's final Star Wars Weekend.

    I already loathe Disney, that poster just makes it worse.
