Holy Jedi! This is cool news update

UPDATE: Tickets for shows in Los Angeles, San Jose and Sacramento go on sale this weekend. See the trailer here.


You all know I am a super-geek when it comes to “Star Wars.” So, I am so excited about this annoucement for a “Star Wars in Concert” tour.

It will feature a symphony orchestra and choir performing composer John Williams‘ music from the six “Star Wars” films and accompanied by a three-story-tall high-definition screen displaying movie footage synchronized to the live music.

According to the Associated Press:

“Organizers plan to land the tour in several North American cities before embarking on a global journey. “Star Wars in Concert” will launch at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Oct. 1, and make stops in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Sacramento; San Jose, Calif.; Seattle; Portland; Tulsa, Okla.; and Oklahoma City. Other cities will be announced later.”

I am so on this. Find tickets, I must! Oh, and if anyone knows a Jedi mind trick to bring this to Fresno, I say get movin’.

I love that you keep using that image.

That particular image and the sequence it involved was animated by my good friend Sean Kelly at ILM!

Yay for Sean!

I love Yoda and that scene.
