Meet Your Star Wars Celebration VI Stage Hosts!

Star Wars Celebration VI, the ultimate fan experience and the biggest Star Wars party ever, will feature three stages of programming offering hours of exclusive entertainment and fascinating information focused on the past, present and future of Star Wars. The stage hosts for the four-day event, held August 23-26 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida are James Arnold Taylor, David Collins and Pablo Hidalgo.

James Arnold Taylor will host the Main Stage, site of the biggest shows and the must-see events being planned for the convention. Taylor is the extremely talented actor whose versatile vocal range has given him success in every facet of the voice-over industry. Star Wars fans know him as the voice of the venerable Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and he has performed celebrated roles in animation and video games, as well as exacting voice-doubling for such stars as Christopher Walken, David Spade, and Michael J. Fox. Taylor debuted his high-energy one-man performance "Talking to Myself" in 2011.

David Collins will host the Digital Stage, a showcase for animation and other multimedia entertainment. Collins is a voice actor/director, musician and sound designer. A veteran of more than 10 years at LucasArts, some of his credits include Star Wars Battlefront, Republic Commando, LEGO Star Wars, Star Wars: The Old Republic and The Force Unleashed series where he played the role of PROXY. Now working at Sony PlayStation, his recent credits include Uncharted 3, Starhawk and Sorcery.

Pablo Hidalgo will host the Behind-the-Scenes Stage, the place to explore the secrets of the making of the saga and also where to hear from the creators of upcoming Star Wars collectibles, books, comics and more. An author of many exhaustively researched books (including The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, Star Wars: Year by Year, and the forthcoming Star Wars: The Essential Reader's Companion) Hidalgo brings an unrivaled depth of knowledge and over 12 years of experience working at Lucasfilm as a resident Star Wars expert.
