WOW!!! I can’t believe Star Wars Weekends is already over! We had such a blast and I cannot thank everyone enough who came out and supported us throughout the month. I love Disney and I love Star War, so for me, this event is the best of both worlds. SWW 2011 was full of many life long memories and one in particular that I will never forget. When a new ride opens at Disney, it’s a big deal, and I am honored that Disney and Lucasfilm ask me to be a part of such a memorable occasion. The amazing cast members at Disney gave me this unforgettable photo in a beautiful frame to commemorate this special day. Never in a million years did I think that I would be standing on the stage with Mr. Lucas and Mr. Iger announcing the grand re-opening of Star Tours. Being the voice of Ahsoka Tano has changed my life in many ways and it has given me experiences that I do not take for granted.

I also had the honor of co-hosting Star Wars Weekends with my dear friend, James Arnold Taylor! I’ve learned so much from James over the past six years of working together and he is a true, one of a kind talent! I had the opportunity to interview James about his experience hosting SWW and his one man show! Check out the interview below!
Finally, I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support Her Universe! This was an enormous step for female fans! Three years ago, they said that women did not really buy a lot of Star Wars shirts and that there were not enough little girls that were Star Wars fans to sell shirts made just for girls. Well, we are tearing down those walls and proving that Star Wars is for everyone and that women want to be catered to, as well. This was a group effort and thank you, thank you for all of your support! – Ashley 😮
