How Are Padawans Selected?

Participants, ages 4 to 12, are randomly selected from audience volunteers; here are tips that might improve the chances of being picked.

Pick Me! Pick Me!

  • When selecting new students, the Jedi Master looks for energetic and enthusiastic Padawans eager to learn. Jump up and down with excitement!
  • Get the Jedi Master to see you. Those in the front of the audience are very visible, but if you find yourself a bit further back, consider standing out with some sort of Star Wars-themed sign.
  • Dress the part. What would a young Jedi-in-training wear on the first day of school?

Please know, there are no guarantees, and the chances of being part of the Jedi Training Academy are based on the number of volunteers per performance.
