Star Wars 30th Birthday: May 25, 2007

Posted by Michael Pinto on Oct 26, 2006 in Star Wars |

There’s a move to celebrate May 25th next year as “The Universal Day of the Jedi” to celebrate the 30th birthday of Star Wars. What’s even cooler yet is there is a big Star Wars convention being planned to mark the day:

Star Wars Celebration IV in Los Angeles To Mark 30th Anniversary of Saga

“To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Gen Con LLC will throw the largest party ever for fans of the saga, taking over the entire Los Angeles Convention Center in May 2007 for five days filled with 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.

Star Wars Celebration IV will fill the L.A. Convention Center from Thursday, May 24 to Monday, May 28, 2007. Admission to the first day of the event will be for worldwide members of the Official Star Wars Fan Club, many of whom will help plan and run special programming themselves. The convention will be open to the general public from Friday through Monday, Memorial Day.”
