  • George Lucas to bring 200 stormtroopers to the 118th Rose Parade

    http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercu...a/16217142.htm


    Not long from now, in our very own galaxy, the "Star Wars Spectacular" will bring an intergalactic spirit - and 200 stormtroopers - to the 118th annual Tournament of Roses parade.

    Grand Marshal George Lucas will be accompanied by two "Star Wars"-themed floats and an army of costumed storm troopers. Lucas, 62, invited the evil soldiers (really costumed superfans from all over the world) to march with him during the New Year's Day parade in Pasadena.

    The stormtroopers belong to a fan club called the 501st Legion, which boasts 3,000 members who appear at fundraisers and charitable events. Members create their own costumes, which can cost up to $1,000 each.
    Other "Star Wars" characters will ride floats in the parade. Four Ewoks will be aboard the Forest Moon of Endor float, from the "Return of the Jedi" era. The Naboo: The Garden Planet float, from the recent "Star Wars" trilogy, will carry three Queens of Naboo and two Jedi protectors.

            Even if you decide not to decide you still have made a choice.

            - Rush.

              Here is one thought, how many of those 200 Storm Troopers plan to visit Star Tours... just what Disney needs, more crowds for the holidays.....

                  Be controversial

                  Be outspoken

                  Be outrageous

                    As long as they don't bring strollers, it's fine.

                        They do something similar during Star Wars Weekends at MGM. Kinda give you the heebie jeebies to see them marching, followed by Darth Vader and Emperor Papaltine.
