    Yep saw it too. How sweet of George to have that band there for his kids. :D

    Loved Carrie's 'I'm Han Solo and I'm an alcoholic' start. [face_laugh] And Harrison's thanking that one guy (can't remember who...) for stating that Tom Selleck was gonna be in his TV series and couldn't be Indiana Jones. [face_laugh] Poor Harrison...kept being pushed over not once, but twice. First as Han and then as Indiana. LOL!

    It was great!

    This is me on the far right leading the way out, with another San Diego Fanforce member (Tom) behind me as Shatner's Footman. LOL

    It'll re-air on Saturday at 2 AM and Sunday at 9 AM for those of you who missed it.

    I got shown twice without my helmet on.. I totally was NOT expecting that. Maroon 5 had their dressing room right next to ours and we ended up doing a lot of our rehearsal the last day in front of their dressing room. We rehearsed from 9 - 6 on Tuesday June 7th (with an hour or so off for lunch), Bill Shatner arrived around 2pm to rehearse with us. He loved the idea of the troopers picking him up and was great to work with. Then on Wednesday we got to the theatre around 1:30 to rehearse some more prior to dress rehearsal but we were waved off. George Lucas was there and we were supposed to be a surprise for George, so we had to go hang out at the Hamburger Hamlet across the street until we got the "All clear" to go over to the Kodak theatre to rehearse, then we had dress rehearsal later that evening, where I took most of the photographs. Then we returned on Thursday for more rehearsals, and at 7:45 were headed over to the stage, and at 8:15 we were doing the opening number with Shatner. It is too bad you guys didn't get to see the WHOLE dance number.. it was great. :D

    Here are the photos from the rehearsal.. oh, and Mark Hamill stood back stage talking to us for a good 20 minutes and he signed my armor!

    Just caught the repeat of the show this past Sunday morning. I was impressed. It was nice to see the old cast brought together. I was surprised that not one of the newer cast members made an appearance.

    Jimmy Smits was there, along with some crossover characters--Chewie, R2 and C-3PO. Who knows if other PT minors were there in the audience?

    Funny how Carrie and Harrison will show up for this kind of thing, but not for Fans.

    That's right. I forgot about Smits. I guess I never really think about ol' Bailey boy. As for Carrie, doesn't she show up at Cons and such. I could have sworn she was at C2. Not sure if she was at C3 though. But I know what you mean about Harrison. He should own up to Lucas and give a little love to the fans, but from what I hear he is a big jerk in real life. [face_talk_hand]

    But I was really referring to Hayden, Natalie and Ewan. Those guys should have been there. I mean, c'mon, they made THREE movies with the man. o_O

    Carrie does Cons from time to time--presumeably when she really needs the money. :rolleyes: But when she does and when interviewed about SW, she tends to complain and say rude things about us.

    With Ewan and Natalie, you can sort of understand them thinking they have better things to do, because they had good careers, and continue to have good careers afterward--don't know where Hayden stands on that..

    One theory I had was that they offered the part that Jimmy Smits had to other stars but Jimmy was the best they could get--the others thumbed their noses at such a small part in the program. It did seem to be OT heavy...
