Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels Join Celebration Japan Autograph Stars!

[ Get Solo ]
Actor Mark Hamill, whose portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars Saga captured the imagination of generations of fans, will appear at Star Wars Celebration Japan, scheduled for July 19-21 in the Makuhari-Messe Convention Center near Tokyo.

Joining Hamill at this first-ever official Lucasfilm Celebration in Asia will be actor Anthony Daniels, as well as a gathering of stars from across 30 years of Star Wars. Daniels performed in all six Star Wars movies as the golden droid C-3PO, and has the honor of delivering the first and last lines uttered in the opening and closing episodes of the Saga.

Hamill, whose acting career has encompassed scores of appearances in movies and television shows as well as critically acclaimed appearances on Broadway, will appear along with other 30-year Star Wars veterans, including Daniels, Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), David Prowse (Darth Vader), and Kenny Baker (R2-D2).

"We couldn't be more pleased that Mark and Anthony will help us celebrate 30 years of Star Wars in Japan," said Steve Sansweet, head of fan relations for Lucasfilm Ltd. "This will be a landmark Celebration for fans. Celebration Japan will also include special presentations about the new Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie and television series, plus entertainment and events for the entire family to enjoy together. We know this will be an unforgettable weekend for fans of all ages."
