May the fourth be with you as Xbox takes to the road by hosting hands-on trial with Kinect Star Wars at Star Wars fan events at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire and the National Space Centre in Leicester. Tickets for both events are likely to be in very high demand, so interested parties are advised to reserve their spot as soon as possible.
The Elstree Empire Day on Saturday 5th May, from 9:00am-6:00pm, is the first time film fans can visit the iconic Elstree Studios, where the Star Wars films were filmed. The once-in-a-lifetime event will be hosted by Gary Kurtz (producer of Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back), and feature appearances by Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Dave Prowse (Darth Vader), John Morton (Boba Fett) and more. In addition to talks by the guests, there will be props from the Star Wars films on display, autograph sessions and a special auction of rare Star Wars memorabilia. All profits from the event will go to help the continuing film preservation and restoration efforts at the Kurtz/Joiner Archive.
The National Space Centre’s event on Saturday-Sunday 5-6th May from 10:00am-5:00pm will feature Star Wars costume character appearances by the impressive 501st UK Garrison that supports local communities through charity and volunteer work. Other activities include appearances by Kenny Baker (R2-D2; Sunday only) and other Star Wars cast members, prop displays and hands-on with Kinect Star Wars.
Kinect Star Wars is available now, exclusively for Xbox 360 Kinect. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Kinect Star Wars, and other titles in the Star Wars videogame franchise.
