So I was checking out the Google News Search yesterday, as one does, and what should appear but – lo! – A Musical Journey, which starts tonight! And so, the BBC has a tour of the companion exhibition.
As for other upcoming events of note, StarWars.com has the Star Wars Weekends 2009 guest list (Heavy on The Clone Wars; Jay Laga’aia and Ashley Eckstein share hosting duties.) and a video of Obi-Wan’s Jedi Starfighter going up in Indianapolis for The Clone Wars exhibit.
Do we really need more Clone Wars? Clearly somebody thinks so, because The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has a Clone-themed exhibit opening later this month.
Okay, so it’s been a few years since I saw the When Science Meets Imagination exhibit, but does anyone else ever spot a Star Wars poster and a Playboy centerfold in the cockpit of the Tantive IV? Or is it Photoshop? Will we ever know?
The photo is from a collection by Flickr user Women, Fire & Dangerous Things (Note the user icon) from the opening of the exhibit in Philadelphia.
If not, don’t worry – you don’t have to be for the BBC’s Star Wars Quiz. I never got past the third question though (technical issues) but hopefully you’ll have better luck.
Also on the BBC today, two videos from the newly-opened Star Wars exhibition in London.
Where Science Meets Imagination opens in Columbus. They even have a blog. Included is a list of the upcoming locations for the exhibits: Portland, Los Angeles, (where it leaves just before C4!) Philadelphia, Chicago, Fort Worth, and St. Paul.
Cinema by the Bay, the first release from George Lucas Books, out now. I thought it was already out?
Star Wars Kids explores Dagobah.
