News Image
Elstree Studios is welcoming back Star Wars, this time with Star Wars: A Musical Journey.
The Star Wars Saga and The O2 will bring the two together as never before in Star Wars: A Musical Journey which will play for two days only: April 10 and April 11 2009, before launching its European tour.
Roger Morris, Managing Director of Elstree Studios said: "I'm so pleased to welcome the Star Wars crew back to Elstree again. All the Star Wars films used Elstree Studios as their UK studio.
"The fact that Star Wars: A Musical Journey has decided to use Elstree for its rehearsals prove that we are in tune with the industry. I'm sure they will feel at home in their George Lucas stage."
The show features an extensive selection of Oscar-winning composer John Williams' scores from all six Star Wars movies into an extrordinary two-hour musical event that features scenes from the movies, live narration and, at the O2, the 86-piece Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and choir.
The live multi-media performance also includes an exhibition of memorabilia from all six films, including original models, props, costumes and production artwork. The Star Wars: A Musical Journey exhibit will feature many classic fan favourite artefacts, as well as several new and never-before-seen items from the Lucasfilm Archives. Many of these exhibits are leaving Skywalker Ranch for the first time!
Star Wars: A Musical Journey is produced by Another Planet Entertainment in association with Lucasfilm.
Tickets to Star Wars: A Musical Journey are on sale at: www.theo2.co.uk or by calling: 0844 856 0202.
