Star Wars… In Concert!

Announcing Star Wars: In Concert

“LOS ANGELES, July 23 /PRNewswire/Star Wars™: In Concert, a unique multi-media event featuring music from all six of John Williams‘ epic Star Wars scores, begins its worldwide arena tour on October 1, 2009 at Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

“Narrated live by Anthony Daniels (the actor who portrayed C-3PO in all six films), the production features a full symphony orchestra and choir, accompanied by specially edited footage from the films displayed on a three-story-tall, high-definition LED super-screen — one of the largest ever put on tour. The live music and film elements are synchronized in order to create a full multi-media, one-of-kind Star Wars experience.

“‘We’ve taken the key themes from the music and cut together all the images that fit with each theme, so you can really get a sense of how the music played into the images,’ said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. ‘The whole soundtrack is a testament to John Williams’ creativity and his extraordinary ability to enhance the emotional aspects of the films.’

“‘Creating the music for the Star Wars films has been an exciting and wonderful experience for me, and I therefore have derived particular pleasure in assembling a compendium of themes from all of the films to be presented in Star Wars in Concert,’ said Williams. ‘The editors at Lucasfilm have created original film montages to accompany each of the musical selections, and in the process, I believe that a singular and unique Star Wars experience has been born.'”

The tour also includes an exhibit of movie props, costumes, and other artifacts.

Star Trek Online assaults our allegiances with Klingon Raptor - Massively

“The Raptor class is packed with more weaponry than it ought to be allowed to have. In fact, it’s got so much that the medical bays are in a very bad way. Let’s put it this way: you don’t want to break, burn or otherwise cut anything while serving on this ship. Although if the captain makes good use of the speed, cloaking and front-facing weapons of pure death, the lack of proper medical facilities probably won’t matter too much. At least… we think.”
