Reach for the Stars
Far more than a tired, kitschy recycling of the Star Wars brand, Star Wars: A Musical Journey is a reimagining of the six-part science-fiction saga into a ninety-minute, multi-media extravaganza. Simply put, it's a different way of looking at the familiar. Call it a night at the symphony crossed with a big-budget rock concert; you definitely won't be falling asleep behind your program. With a full choir and symphony, a 100-foot LED screen and a laser light show, A Musical Journey pulls the audience into the world of Star Wars like never before.
Starting today at 2 p.m. at the Pepsi Center, 1000 Chopper Circle, A Musical Journey features the music of five-time Academy Award winner John Williams (Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark) synched with a bombastic video collage of sequences from all six movies edited together by Lucasfilm. The entire event is narrated by Anthony Daniels voice of C-3PO. In addition, on display are a couple thousand square feet of a traveling exhibit featuring costumes, props and surprises from the whole Star Wars epic.
