A Tribute To George Lucas
With Special Appearances by Darth Vader,
R2-D2, C-3PO, Irvin Kerschner, James Earl Jones, Gene Roddenberry, Gary Kurtz,
and George Lucas, and many more.
In 1987, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Star Wars, a large convention
was organized, featuring many of the stars. George Lucas, Billy Dee
Williams, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Irvin Kirschner, Gary Kurtz, and
many others appeared. A Lucasfilm employee taped much of the convention.
At the beginning of the tape that I have, several comedians come out to crack
a few jokes, after which Darth Vader comes out to tell his top 9 Pet Peeves
of being in Star Wars (James Earl Jones provided the voice, but I am not
sure if he attended the convention). After that, R2-D2 and C-3PO came
out, and then George Lucas came, to answer questions from the audience. At
the end, most of the guests joined together, and presented George Lucas a
special gift. First, he was introduced for the very first time to Gene
Roddenberry, of Star Trek fame. The two greatest sci-fi minds had never
met before, and Roddenberry even admits to being an enormous Star Wars fan.
The second gift is a cheesy 'statue' of a book, featuring the droids.
