    6.00am - A dawn parade of the 501st UK Garrison of Storm Troopers will open the doors for the world?s very first showing of the entire Star Wars saga. All six episodes will be shown back-to-back at the UCI Empire Leicester Square, culminating in the public premiere of Revenge of the Sith. Tickets to the Star Wars Marathon completely sold out in a record 5 minutes when they went on sale last month. The London Celebration Day is the only place in the world to host such a ground-breaking cinematic event.
    Keeping order all day, these Storm Troopers will be patrolling the square and guarding a life-size X-Wing fighter grounded on the square. Many other favourite Star Wars characters will be seen throughout the celebration, posing for pictures with the public and showing off their authentic outfits and props in the largest ever congregation of its kind.

    10.30am - In an unprecedented move, all the cinemas in Leicester Square will be involved in showing Star Wars episodes throughout the day. In addition to the Star Wars Marathon at the UCI Empire, the Vue and Odeon West End Cinemas will be screening individually ticketed performances of Episodes I, II, IV, V and VI throughout the day. The Odeon Leicester Square will hold the star-studded UK Premiere of Revenge of the Sith that evening. There will be the capacity for thousands of people to watch Star Wars films during the Celebration Day.

    1.00pm - The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will perform the first of two very special public performances of the iconic Star Wars score. The performances will take place on a purpose built stage in the Leicester Square gardens. The concerts, along with all the other activities outside in the square, will be free to attend.

    3.00pm - An exclusive opportunity for the fans to interact directly with their idols, actors Jeremy Bullock (Boba Fett), Christopher Lee (Count Dooku), and Anthony Daniels (C3-PO) will participate in live public interviews on the stage. Huge screens around the square will show the interviews, concerts, and footage of Revenge if the Sith to the assembled public.

    4.30pm - The build up to the premiere in the evening will feature fun activities for children. Kicking off in the afternoon, the kids can enjoy Star Wars-themed face painting, receive free balloons and get heir pictures taken with Storm Troopers. The pictures will be printed on-site and given out for free. In addition, photographers provided by sponsor AMD will be on hand around the square all day to take pictures of fans joining in the celebrations. Fans will be able to log on to a special website when they get home and download their photos.

    6.30pm - The climax to the Star Wars Celebration Day will be the UK Premiere of the final installment in the saga, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Celebrity guests will join director/producer George Lucas, producer Rick McCallum, Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker), Ian Mcdiarmid (Palpatine), Christopher Lee (Count Dooku), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) on the red carpet for what will be the most hotly-anticipated premiere the capital has ever hosted. The Royal Philharmonic will set the mood at 6.30pm with its second concert of the day. From 7.30pm the big screens will show live footage of the celebrity red carpet arrivals and a special appearance by the evil Darth Vader escorted by his Storm Trooper honour guard.
