2007 is the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars Saga, which means you better gear up for a year of tributes and shout-outs to the geeky phenomenon. My homage to the series? This fantastic silent movie:
On Wednesday, May 25, 1977, Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope premiered to the public – and went on to become the top-grossing movie of all time. This year fans will celebrate the series with Celebration IV, a four-day gathering of Star Wars fans from around the world featuring celebrity appearances, special screenings and sneak peeks into some of the goodies Lucasfilm has in store for us. It will take place May 25th to May 28th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The coming months will see the continuation of the popular (and frequently sold-out) “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination” museum tour; the release of the first-ever book chronicling the “Making of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope" and the first-ever Star Wars Celebration event in Europe.
Throughout the year, Star Wars action figures will come packaged with 30th-anniversary collector coins. Lucasfilm Animation is in the midst of production of the as-yet-untitled Star Wars animated TV series, working with talented artists and storytellers in California and Singapore to create entirely new adventures.
