Carl Weathers, BB-8 Performer Brian Herring, and More Announced for Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023

Greef Karga actor, Carl Weathers is now confirmed to attend Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023 in London this April.  Weathers, already loved by a generation of moviegoers thanks to classic turns in the Rocky series, Predator (1987), and much more, became part of the galaxy far, far away as a key figure in The Mandalorian.
