Star Wars: In Concert begins its worldwide arena tour on October 1, 2009 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Debuting at the O2 in London back in April, this multi-media extravaganza features music from all six Star Wars films scored by John Williams, accompanied by specially-edited visuals, a live orchestra, choir and narration. An exclusive exhibit of Star Wars costumes, props, artwork and behind-the-scenes videos will travel with the concert tour; many of the pieces have never been publicly displayed outside the Skywalker Ranch before.
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.”
