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.
