Walt Disney World in Florida has announced that a fifth weekend has been added to Star Wars Weekends. The popular annual event will now be held each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, May 16-June 15, 2014.

Another addition for 2014 is a nightly fireworks show during the event. It will feature the movie score by John Williams. No mention has yet been made on whether or not the fireworks will replace Hyperspace Hoopla, a show that has closed each night of the event in the past.

Disney has also announced the return of James Arnold Taylor as celebrity host. The talented voice actor is known to Star Wars fans as the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Clone Wars animated series. No other celebrity guests have yet been announced.

The theme for the 2014 Star Wars Weekends is “Join the Rebellion”. The annual event takes place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and is included with park admission.
