'Star Wars' Multimedia Event to Rely on HD Images

If six feature films over three decades, an animated TV series, novels, comic books, and several decades of other activities aren't quite enough for "Star Wars" fans, they have one more major event to look forward to this fall: a multimedia concert that plans to used a super-large HD screen as its primary imaging tool.

While some details remain elusive, the event will tour several cities in North America (and likely overseas, as well) starting in September. According to its promoters, "Star Wars in Concert" will feature the music and film images from all six of John Williams' movie scores and will be narrated at each site in-person by Anthony Daniels, the actor who played C-3PO in all six films.

Along with specially edited footage to be shown on a three-story tall HD LED "super-screen," the live concert will also boast a full orchestra and choir. "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," Daniels said in a statement.
