One of the highlights of Star Wars Weekends is the “Legends of the Force: Star Wars Celebrity Motorcade,” a short but spectacular parade of characters down Hollywood Boulevard.
Among the classic Star Wars characters — and Disney characters in their Star Wars garb — are more than 150 volunteers from the Florida Garrison of the 151st Legion, an all-volunteer “Imperial Costuming organization.”
Here are a few of our favorites from this year’s motorcade (Photos by Mary and Steven Liebman):
Mickey Mouse heads the Disney favorites cosplaying as Star Wars characters.
Chip and Dale stand in for Ewoks
Minnie makes a fetching Princess Leia.
Isn’t Donald Duck a little short to be a Stormtrooper?
Goofy goes over to the Dark Side … but only on the weekends.
The 151st Legion — “Vader’s Fist” — appears in self-made costumes.
151st members as the Emperor’s Royal Guard, protecting …
Their Emperor Palpatine.
Take some extra trinkets with you to Star Wars Weekends and you may be able to trade with Jawas.
