Star Wars Trilogy
- Wordpress category:
I was in Paris at the weekend and went to the launch of the Star Wars trilogy in FNAC on the Champs Elysees after midnight on the 21 September. Had to queue for three hours from 10 PM but did manage to get my Empire Strikes Back DVD signed by R2D2 (Kenny Baker) and Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) which was cool. Funny thing was that I was unknowingly sitting beside the same Kenny Baker on a hop-on hop-off tour bus that very afternoon, not knowing that I'd be queueing up to get my DVD signed by him later on.
I was also in the Virgin megastore on Champs Elysees earlier that day. They also had a Star Wars theme going with a number of stormtroopers (both episode I and IV variations) patrolling the store, looking pretty sinister and peering over people's shoulders. I didn't notice one of them beside me until I had picked up a Battlestar Galactica box set (shaped with a Cylon's head) to look at; no doubt I've now been marked as a rebel in their files.
