Dear Jennifer, Tim and William-- Many thanks for your note about your planned event. Coming from a fan background myself-and still being one-I think that grassroots events are fantastic. We were all amazed by the lining-up phenomenon for Episode I. At the same time, if we got involved, it would no longer be a grassroots event, but seen by many cynics as an attempt to manipulate fans and garner publicity for Episode II. Also, we are receiving similar requests on a near-daily basis, and we simply don't have the bandwidth to approve or monitor individual events. We are putting all of our efforts into Star Wars Celebration II in Indianapolis May 3-5, sponsored by the Official Star Wars Fan Club. In addition, we already have plans in the works to sponsor charities in a number of cities upon the release of Episode II. While I wish we could comply with every request we receive from enthusiastic fans, we simply are not able to. The bottom line is that Lucasfilm cannot authorize, sanction, or in any way be involved with an event that we are not directly planning or sponsoring. If you proceed with your event, please make sure that people understand that it is a grassroots fan event and in no way connected with Lucasfilm. Please do not use our images, logos and other intellectual property, again so that no one confuses anything that your group does with an official Lucasfilm event.
