    Given that Episode III is some time away, midnight on Tuesday December 16, I thought it would be nice to mention Return of the King. I just viewed the trailer (available here ) and was very impressed by it. ROTK will make FOTR and TTT pale in comparison. Also, I am organizing a line party for the movie. We'll meet beforehand, get some dinner before the show, and then wait together for ROTK at midnight at Crossroads 20 in Cary. Sign up for my line party at the same link above by going to Line Party Celebrations, searching on Cary, click on Crossroads 20 and add your name to it.

    I'm sure this will be a sell out the day of the ticket availability.

    I have also added my name on TORN as Line Party coordinator for

    Hope to see each of you there!
    I'm so excited!

    NOOOOOOOOO!!!! (with much sad weeping) My family and I will be in Cancun, or some other tropical paradise at that time. It's not fair!!!!!!! Woe is me.

    Hey, do you think there will be another party later on?

    You're going to be in a tropical paradise while we are in NC, where it will most likely be very cold. What's the downside of the argument here?? :p

    I'm spoiled and I want to do both. Besides, I'm going on vaction with my parents and my other 4 siblings and thier families, in addition to my family...if it's anything like our family vacations were as a kid, it won't be that much of a paradise. ;) I should get a tan out of it, though. :D

    But seriously, I do wish I could go to the line party. It sounds like it would be super fun!

    Yes, indeed, Sing. Many of us will be there. Watch for the signs we'll be carrying - NCFellowship and SW Fan Force - you can't miss us - be there when it opens.

    JGK_vader and gang,

    ***************************************
    BTW - You can be certain Lucas is looking at this very seriously - I know from talking to Raleigh Grand's manager - to see if putting all 6 Star Wars films back to back would be worthwhile when Episode 3 comes out.
    ***************************************

    I'll be running the fan activities everywhere.

    Tuesday 12/16 - LOTR trilogy - Raleigh Grand
    Wed. 12/17 - probably Durham Southpoint but not yet confirmed
    Thurs 12/18 - no activity planned yet
    Friday 12/19 - no activity planned yet
    Saturday 12/20 AM / PM - Cary Crossroads Sat AM and early afternoon mostly for kids
    Saturday 12/20 PM Timberlyne
    Sunday 12/21 PM Cary Crossroads mostly for families


    Surely you can make one of them.

    Oh, hopefully we can. Is it a dress up thing? I ask because my Ren Costume can double as a TLOTR costume, especially the cloak.

    We will so be there for a star wars theatre marathon.

    Deffinatley!

    My Jedi costume I don't think will make the crossover :p .

    I'll buy a tire, spray paint it gold, then attach suspenders and hang it from my shoulders and I'll go as the ring. Easy and cheap, but effective nonetheless. :p

    Last year there were Klingons at the RenFaire - thus the crossover bar seems extraordinarily low. Though I must admit I believe the Klingons got a few sidelong glances.

    Actually, I do think your costume could easily make the cross-over.

    Doggone it I wish I could be there with you guys for the LOTR marathon. It is too bad it is in the middle of December when I am the busiest of the year at my job.

    We should have a LOTR party for the people who can't make it to the big one!

    I agree on the party idea for those who can't make it.

    Yes, I saw those Klingons also. People gave tnem nary a mind, but I didn't think it was in bad taste....just weird. :)

    Hey guys - if you haven't done so already you may want to stroll over to the Movie Tickets website and purchase your trilogy tickets. They went on sale October 9 and I have heard that some shows are already selling out. Tickets are $25 per ticket and FOTR starts at 1pm with ROTK ending at 2am.
