The Star Wars money-making machine is at it again, this time with a live stage production.
Come on, can’t you just see it: a chorus line of stormtroopers and dancing wookies?
E! is reporting that George Lucas has signed off on Star Wars: A Musical Journey, a two-hour live musical event featuring John Williams’ Oscar-winning score.
The show will premiere next year in London’s O2 Arena and will be performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in sync with movie clips from the six live-action films, playing in chronological order, from The Phantom Menace to the Return of the Jedi.
The production will blast off April 10 in the U.K. and then embark on a European tour, complete with an exhibition of rare Star Wars collectibles including never-before-seen models, props, costumes and production artwork. No word when it will visit America.
