Star Wars Weekends returns to Disney World’s Hollywood Studios for a special summer event celebrating the classic sci-fi series. The sci-fi fan-fest takes place every Friday, Saturday & Sunday from May 22 – June 14, and during this time Disney World Hollywood Studios is transformed into part of the Star Wars galaxy, complete with Ewoks, Wookies, Storm Troopers, Jawas and other Star Wars creatures.
