Chewie and Ackbar Confirmed for Celebration VI

The official site has details of more guests confirmed for Celebration VI. The headliner this time around is Chewbacca himself, Peter Mayhew. Other confirmations include:

Tim Rose: “It’s a Trap!” The performer behind Admiral Ackbar, Tim Rose, will be at Celebration VI. The puppeteer also performed the iconic Sy Snoodles and Salacious Crumb.

Trevor Butterfield: Butterfield performed a variety of roles, including an Imperial Officer and Lt. Blount in Return of the Jedi.

Nick Maley: A make-up artist in The Empire Strikes Back, Maley was involved with Stuart Freeborn in the creation of Yoda.

Paul Springer: Mime artist and puppeteer, Springer portrayed a Gamorrean guard and the character Ree Yees in Return of the Jedi.

Mayhew joins Carrie Fisher and Jeremy Bulloch as the early confirmations for the convention to celebrate all things Star Wars. I do hope they’ll let Peter and Carrie do a panel together. One of the highlights at last year’s Dragon*Con was watching the two of them riff off each other for an hour.
