Disney is bringing back the Star Wars Weekends this summer and now casting for performers to fill the roles of Chewy, Darth Vader and the Ewoks. The Star Wars Weekend auditions will be held next month at Disney Orlando. On the west coast, Disney is also doing auditions for the Jedi Academy and is seeking an actor for the role of Darth Vader and a Jedi Master.
One of the most beloved movies of all time will be celebrated at the happiest place on Earth this summer. The annual event that celebrates the classic sci-fi film series will return to Disney parks which means performers are needed to fill the iconic roles. The annual event includes special shows, presentations and of course, Disney Star Wars memorabilia. The annual event begins in mid May 2015 and will run through the middle of June. Rehearsals for the performers will begin in April.
