Happy 30th Anniversary To ‘The Empire Strikes Back’

30 years ago, “The Empire Strikes Back” blasted into theaters and shattered expectations by surpassing its predecessor “Star Wars” later renamed “A New Hope.”


Last night Lucasfilm held a special screening of the film at the ArcLight Theater in Los Angeles for charity. It was followed by a question and answer period with HarrisonĀ  Ford. Billy Dee Williams, Peter Mayhew and Ewan McGregor were also in attendance. And for some reason so were Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Seriously, who let them in the door?


I must admit they all look old. Especially Peter Mayhew who played Chewbacca. But, he does have a pretty kick ass lightsaber cane.

Here’s Darth Vader and Luke’s lightsaber duel edited together from “Empire.” My small way of celebrating. I may also go up to random people and tell them “I am your father.” On second thought, that may be too creepy.


And finally, check out this Imperial Star Destroyer themed home theater. It has Han frozen in carbonite and everything. Pretty sweet.
