The selections this year show the true power of the geeking world in entertainment, and just how much sway we have over the entire industry. Star Wars alumni alone have taken three spots all by themselves: Carrie Fisher, Ewan McGregor and Ming-Na Wen. Patti Lupone voices Yellow Diamond in the Steven Universe. Jason Mamoa was both Aquaman and Kal Drogo in Game of Thrones. James Hong played the heavy in Big Trouble in Little China, and also appears in both Kung Fu Panda and the original sci-fi classic Bladerunner. Salma Hayek has been in Kevin Smith’s Dogma, the animated Puss in Boots, Muppets Most Wanted, and is in the yet to be released Eternals as Ajak. Tessa Thompson was Valkyrie in the Thor movies, and played Agent M in Men in Black: International. And of course Ming-Na Wen was the voice of Mulan in the Disney film by the same name before she became Melinda May in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and its Walk of Fame Selection Panel congratulate all the honorees. Dates have not been scheduled for these star ceremonies. Recipients have two years to schedule star ceremonies from the date of selection before they expire. Upcoming star ceremonies are usually announced ten days prior to dedication on the official website www.walkoffame.com.
