Epic space movie franchise Star Wars is to be turned into a spectacular London stage show.
Creator of the cult movies, George Lucas, has announced plans for the production - titled Star Wars: A Musical Journey - which will feature the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra playing a live score as excerpts from the six films are shown on a cinema screen.
The show will feature live narrators, and is set to premiere at the O2 Arena in London in April before touring Europe.
