The Force will be with Marines and their families Friday evening at MCAS Miramar, as the USO hosts two private screenings of the Cartoon Network series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."

The actors who voice many of the characters in the series will be on hand, and, according to the USO, Marines and their families can participate in a Q&A and autograph session with the show’s supervising director Dave Filoni and five cast members:

Among the actors scheduled to be onsite to greet troops and talk animation, include Dee Bradley Baker (voice of ‘Captain Rex,’ ‘the clones’ and ‘Bossk’), Catherine Taber (voice of ‘Padme Amidala’), James Arnold Taylor (voice of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’), Matt Lanter (voice of ‘Anakin Skywalker’) and Ashley Eckstein (voice of ‘Ahsoka Tano’).

Families with younger children (a.k.a. younglings) are encourage to attend the first screening, which will feature a more family-friendly episode. The second screening at 8:00 p.m. is for a bit more mature audiences, as it stars infamous villain Darth Maul.
