Metroblogging Mos Eisley eat your heart out! The Los Angeles Convention Center will host Star Wars Celebration IV from May 24th to May 28th, 2007, corresponding with the 30th Anniversary of the original release of Star Wars. Short of a landspeeder roadtrip to Skywalker Ranch, this event will be a mecca for the legions of Jedi wannabe all over the galaxy:
Lucasfilm is also working on other Star Wars-related events in the Los Angeles area just prior to Celebration IV, “so we’re expecting Southern California to become ‘Destination: Star Wars’ from the weekend before through Memorial Day weekend,” (LucasFilm spokesman Steve) Sansweet said… The Celebration IV announcement is being made a year in advance to give fans worldwide a chance to plan for a week-long “Destination: Star Wars” blow-out in Los Angeles.
This means one year to
decarbonate forgive Lucas for Episodes I and III.
According to the press release the convention will be made up of:
…live entertainment, celebrities from all six movies, special film and video presentations, an exhibit of movie props and costumes, exclusive merchandise sold at a 24-hour-a-day store, pop culture tributes, immersive events, costume contests, and scores of additional activities.
No word yet if Ewok bowling or womp rat target practice will be available.
